US Strongly Supports 'Israel' Right to Self-defense

Damascus

The Israeli military said Thursday that it had bombed dozens of Iran-linked military facilities in Syria, as tensions between the three countries soared.

"The worldwide community's silence encourages Israel's aggression".

Observers have noted Russia's lack of condemnation of Israel, whereas Moscow did criticise an Israeli strike on Syria in April.

"It was commanded and ordered by (Quds Force chief General) Qassem Soleimani and it has not achieved its goal", military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus told reporters.

Robert Fisk, who has repeatedly challenged dominant US media narratives on the Syrian civil war and other Middle East crises, argued in a column for The Independent on Thursday that the "latest overnight Israeli air strikes, supposedly at Iranian forces in Syria after a supposed Iranian rocket attack on Israeli forces in Golan-and it's important to use the "supposed" and not take all this at face value-must have been known to the Americans in advance".

Most European diplomats fear that once the Trump's administration leans on European businesses hard enough, they won't be able to plug the economic shortfall, something Rouhani needs so he can sell the Iran deal without America at home.

"Whoever hurts us, we will strike at him sevenfold", Netanyahu said in a video clip recorded after a meeting of his security cabinet concluded at the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv. "We assess it will take substantial time to replenish".

Russian Federation urged mutual calm after the massive air war in which its ally, Iran, suffered badly.

Mouaz Moustafa, executive director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, said that Iran will only commit more atrocities against innocents if they are allowed to continue.

There has been tension between the two Middle Eastern countries for quite some time, and at this point, Israel has appeared to hit a breaking point because of its perception that Iran has too much influence in the region.

The confrontation came two days after US President Donald Trump announced the United States' withdrawal from the 2015 worldwide nuclear accord with Iran, a move welcomed by Israel and Saudi Arabia. A British-based human rights monitor said 23 fighters were killed.

Indeed, Israel's disproportionate response was, for once, not condemned by the worldwide community.

The rising tension in Syria came just as the United States made a decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and impose new sanctions, adding to the pressure on Tehran.

For years, Iran's clerical regime has chanted "Death to Israel" and supported Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas on Israel's borders in Gaza and the West Bank, which the United States designates as terror organizations.

Russian Federation sent forces to Syria to back President Bashar Assad in 2015.

"We hit almost all the Iranian infrastructure in Syria", Lieberman told a security conference. Further waves of missiles followed. Syria says Israel launched dozens of missiles and hit a radar station, air defence positions and an ammunition dump. Hours later, state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV broadcast a live feed of Syrian air defenses firing into the sky above the capital. Damascus residents described explosions in the sky from air defense systems.
