In Syria killed more than two dozen foreign fighters

UPDATE 1-Russia, after Netanyahu visit, backs off Syria S-300 missile supplies

First, since Iran and Israel do not share a border, it is hard to see how the present hostilities could spiral into a wide-ranging confrontation involving ground operations. It is reported by the human rights organization Syrian Observatory for human rights (SOHR), reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.

Note that the experts of the human rights organization based in London, receive data from the network of informants in Syria.

Israel had said its strikes on Thursday were in response to a barrage of Iranian rockets on its positions in the occupied Golan Heights, the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date.

The turning point between the Israel-Syrian confrontation appeared in February, when the Syrian army said it shot down an Israeli F-16 fighter jet, which targeted an air base in the central province of Homs on the pretext that an Iranian drone was sent from the base and infiltrated the Israeli airspace.

The spokesperson for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Matt Frei Israel doesn't want war with any of its neighbours. At least 15 people were killed in the strike, including eight Iranians, according to the Observatory.

"They need to remember the saying that if it rains on us, it'll storm on them".


Tensions between the two countries rose when Trump pulled America out of the Iran nuclear deal.

Israel has long warned it will not accept Iran entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria, where Tehran has deployed forces to support the government of President Bashar al-Assad in the country's seven-year civil war. Israel however, which has always been concerned about Iranian influence in the Middle East welcomed Trump's decision.

Iran says Israel's repeated attacks are based on "fabricated" reasons.

On April 14, the U.S., France, and Britain launched a series of missile strikes on military positions in Syria over its alleged chemical attack in a formerly rebel-held area near Damascus.

A Syrian military statement, however, said that most of the Israeli missiles were destroyed before hitting their targets, adding that a radar station was hit as well as air defenses battalions, stressing readiness to respond to any "aggression". Thursday's attack was a "blatant violation of Syria's sovereignty", Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi was quoted as saying Friday.
