Israeli army 'hit dozens of Iranian military targets in Syria'

Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri delivers a speech during a military parade marking the 36th anniversary of Iraq's 1980 invasion of Iran in front of the shrine of late revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khome

Colonel Conricus said the barrage of approximately 20 Grad and Fajr-5 rockets fired from Syria and aimed at Israeli positions after midnight was launched under the command of the Quds Force and utilized Iranian weapons.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said Iran's Al Quds force fired the rockets at several Israeli bases, though he would not say how Israel determined the Iranian involvement.

Israel's army told municipalities in the Golan Heights at the time to open bomb shelters after noticing "irregular activity" of Iranian forces in Syria that raised fears of an impending attack.

Tel Aviv justified Tuesday's air strike with the unsubstantiated claim that Tehran was preparing to strike Israel in retaliation for a raid on the T4 airbase in April that claimed the lives of nine Iranians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has backed The Donald's decision to quit the Iran nuke deal and has prepared for for a tense regional flare-up. Israel says its occasional strikes in Syria aim to foil that.

On Middle East relations, referring to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States: "It's time for the moderate countries in the Middle East to come out of the closet, speak openly ... we need an Axis of moderate countries".

Ties ebbed with the outbreak of the Syrian war in 2011, when the Hamas leadership-in-exile left Syria amid President Bashar Assad's crackdown on Sunni Muslim rebels, many with ideologies similar to those of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent movement of Hamas.

No Iranian rocket hit Israel, Lieberman said. The United Nations considers it Israeli-occupied Syrian territory.

Earlier, state news agency SANA and a war monitor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported artillery fire from Israeli-held territory at Baath City in Quneitra province near the border.

"Ought to there be one other Iranian assault, we can be ready for it", he stated.

"It was ordered and commanded by Qassem Soleimani and it has not achieved its objective", said Lt Col Jonathan Conricus, a spokesman for the Israeli Defence Forces.

Iran is Israel's arch-foe and has repeatedly called for an end to the existence of the Jewish state.

Iran is an ally of Mr Assad and has deployed hundreds of troops to Syria.

Yemen's Shiite rebels, the Houthis, have fired a series of missiles into neighboring Saudi Arabia during the three-year-old conflict, most recently on Wednesday, a day after Trump's announcement.

They would "think together how we can act correctly in the region, how we can remove the threats that exist in the region in a responsible and reasonable way".
