Latest Israeli attacks may signal new period in Syria

Skier's camera captures Israel's Iron Dome intercepting missile

Russian Federation is demanding that Israel end its "arbitrary" airstrikes on targets in Syria, two days after the Israeli Air Force struck a series of Iranian military and intelligence targets in response to a rocket strike on the Golan Heights.

Russian Federation has called on Israel to stop carrying out "arbitrary' air strikes on Syrian territory, days after the Israeli Air Force targeted what Israel said were Iranian forces in the war-torn country".

On January 21, the Israeli military confirmed it had attacked Iranian military targets in Syria, hours after Israeli forces carried out strikes near Damascus International Airport.

Israel carried out strikes on alleged Iranian targets in Syria for two consecutive days starting on 20 January.

Syria lost patience with ongoing Israeli air strikes on its territory and violations of the country's sovereignty in dramatic fashion yesterday.

Soleimani had reportedly visited a southern Syrian town near the Golan Heights border area with Israel in breach of the Russian-brokered agreement with Tehran and Damascus to remain at least 40 kilometers from the ceasefire line on the Israeli-Syrian border.

He said quarterly economic growth is being reduced by.13 of a percent each week the shutdown continues. Federal employees received pay stubs with nothing but zeros on them last week.

According to an official statement released by the IDF, the inbound missile was sacked by Iranian forces operating out of nearby Syria.

"We will not ignore such acts of aggression as Iran attempts to entrench itself militarily in Syria and gives explicit statements by Iran that it intends to destroy Israel", stated the Israeli Prime Minister.

The diplomat is also reported to have blasted Israel's annexation of the Golan Heights, claiming that Syria has a "permanent right that is not subject to negotiation" to the area and repeating its intention to restore sovereignty over all its lost territories. The missile was launched "by Iranian troops, not by proxies, not by Shiite militias, not by Syrian troops, but Iranian troops with an Iranian missile", Conricus said. The head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Mohammad Ali Jafari, responded by saying that Iran would keep "its military advisors, revolutionary forces and its weapons" in the Arab Republic, despite the Israeli threats. Gen. Aziz Nasirzadeh said, according to Iranian media reports.

"We're ready for the decisive war that will bring about Israel's disappearance".

Despite the current tensions, Israeli analysts say they do not believe Israel or Iran wants a war.
