Iranian forces in Syria have sent rockets hurdling towards army bases in the Golan Heights, across the border in Israel, according to reports.

Israel had been bracing for a possible Iranian "revenge" attack after the Islamic Republic accused the Jewish state of having attacked one of its bases in Syria on April 9 in which nine Iranian commanders were said to have been killed. "The US supports them and will support any action aimed at self-defense".

Expectations of a regional flare-up, amid warnings from Israel that it was determined to prevent any Iranian military entrenchment in Syria, were stoked by U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement on Tuesday about the withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

Some of the rockets were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome areal defense system.

In response to Iran's attempt to bomb some of its military sites, the Israeli military has destroyed several Iranian posts in Syria. Israel says its occasional strikes in Syria aim to prevent such an outcome.

"The worldwide community should prevent the establishment of the Iranian Quds Force in Syria".




Syrian activists reported Israeli airstrikes hitting targets near Damascus. Israeli cities would be hit, as might strategic targets in Iran.

"28 Israeli F-15 and F-16 aircraft were used in the attack, which released around 60 air-to-ground missiles over various parts of Syria".

"We hit almost all the Iranian infrastructure in Syria", Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman told a security conference. Now we have a new height and I'm not sure it is a result of the nuclear issue, which is a very important issue, but a separate one from this. The incoming attack set off air raid sirens in the Israeli-controlled Golan, which was captured from Syria in the 1967 war.

The military escalation comes at a worrying time, after the US pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal with active support from the Israeli government.

Israel's bombing of Iranian targets in Syria was a "direct planned action" following the United States withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, according to Russian MP Leonid Slutskiy.

These could include terrorist attacks on Israeli interests, cyberattacks against Arab and American targets and the use of Shia militia to pressure American forces in Iraq and Syria - all of which have been seen in the past several years. In short, both Israel and Iran have deliberately escalated the conflict over the past month. However Israel and Iran remain on a collision course. According to the observatory, at least fifteen people, of whom eight were Iranian, were killed. Israel responded by attacking anti-aircraft positions in Syria, but an Israeli warplane was shot down during the battle. "It means we are on a collision course".
