Netanyahu says Iran crossed 'red line' with rocket fire

  • Netanyahu No basis to think Russia will limit Israel’s action in Syria

Israel's army said today it had hit dozens of Iranian military targets in Syria.

The White House has condemned Iran's attacks on Israeli citizens as "unacceptable and highly dangerous".

The Israeli military on Thursday said it attacked almost all of Iran's military installations in neighboring Syria in response to what it described as an Iranian rocket barrage on Israeli positions in the occupied Golan Heights.

Israel said early Thursday that Iran's Quds Force fired 20 rockets at Israeli front-line military positions in the Golan Heights.

Israel had been expecting an Iranian response for some time, following a series of military strikes in Syria that targeted Iranian positions.

The sudden surge in the exchange of rockets Wednesday night - on the heels of Trump's exit from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - hints that Iran has suspended its strategic restraint.

We responded accordingly: "The IDF conducted a large-scale attack against Iranian targets in Syria", Netanyahu said. "I want to hope that we will be able not only to discuss with you, but also to look for solutions that would soften the situation", said Putin.

Israel has always been wary of Iran's growing influence in the region. Four of them were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, and the rest landed in Syrian territory. There were no Israeli casualties.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Thursday that the Israeli attacks will only increase tension in the region and pose a "serious" threat to regional and worldwide peace, according to the state news agency SANA.

"Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) bears full responsibility for the consequences of its reckless actions, and we call on the IRGC and its militant proxies, including Hizballah, to take no further provocative steps".

Syrian media said it was the first time in years that Syrians had fired at Israeli forces in the Golan Heights.

Damascus shook with sounds of explosions just before dawn, and firing by Syrian air defenses over the city was heard for more than five hours.

The targets included rocket launchers, intelligence posts, military command posts, and weapons depots.

Israeli jets came under fire from Syrian aerial defences, the army said, but no Israeli injuries were reported.

Russian Federation said 28 Israeli F-15 and F-16 planes took part in the raids with a total of around 70 missiles fired.

The Israeli strikes are likely the largest in Syria since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

Israel's right to defend their country, reported the press Secretary of the White house USA Sarah Sanders, commenting on Israeli air strikes on Syria. According to the observatory, at least fifteen people, of whom eight were Iranian, were killed. Syria and Iran blamed those strikes on Israel, and Iran's leaders vowed revenge. The conflict comes two days following Trump's exit from nuclear deal.

Israel has been warning for weeks that it will not accept Iran entrenching itself militarily in neighboring Syria, where Tehran is supporting President Bashar al-Assad's regime in the civil war.

Israel and Russian Federation have established a hotline to avoid accidental clashes in the war-torn country.
