On Wednesday, after the two Muslim partners marked an understanding on security participation, Israel renwed its threat to assault Iranian military targets in Syria.
Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said on Israeli public radio: “The understanding closed by (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad and Iran constitutes a test for Israel: Our reaction will be uproarious and clear.”
He also said: “We won’t enable Iran to set up its militarily in Syria. We will respond in Syria energetically against any Iranian focus on that debilitates Israel, and if the Syrian armed force’s air barrier mediates against us, it will pay the price.”
“Our nation’s military counselors would stay in Syria under the guard assention marked the earlier day,” Iran’s military attache to Damascus said.
Brigadier-General Abolghasem Alinejad said: “Support for Syria’s regional trustworthiness and the freedom of Syrian sway were likewise stressed in the assention.”
It should be noted that Tehran has given consistent political, money related and military sponsorship to President Assad as he has battled back against a seven-year war.
On the other hand, Israel has tried to maintain a strategic distance from coordinate inclusion in the contention yet recognizes completing many air strikes in Syria to stop what it says are conveyances of cutting edge weaponry to its Lebanese enemy Hezbollah.
