Netanyahu tells Putin Israel will defend itself against Iranian aggression in Syria

The White House on Thursday slammed Iran for the alleged rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli-occupied territory.

"The Iranians tried to attack the sovereign territory of Israel", Liberman said. "The US supports them and will support any action aimed at self-defense". Israel's Iron Dome aerial defense system stopped numerous rockets, which led to bright flashes due to the explosions in the sky. "Israel also fired more than 10 tactical ground-to-ground missiles", Russia's defense ministry said in a statement quoted by the Interfax news agency. Indeed, by Thursday morning, Israeli life returned to routine in the Golan Heights, with children going to school.

Previously, the Israeli military accused Iranian troops of firing 20 rockets against the targets in Golan Heights, a border area once controlled by Syria, but occupied by Israel for over 50 years.

Iranian leaders have not issued a statement in response to the attacks, but according to CNN, it will be the first time Iranian forces launched rockets to purposely attack Israel.

It said the rockets followed a "first Israeli bombardment on the town of Baath" in Syria's Quneitra Governorate.


"We don't want an escalation, but won't let anyone attack us or build an infrastructure to attack us in the future", he said.

Iran has not claimed responsibility for the rocket fire.

In Damascus, a Greek reporter asked President Bashar al-Assad if Syria would be the venue for world war three.

Sputnik: Previously reports suggested that the United States withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran could put Israeli national security under the grave threat. Israeli cities would be hit, as might strategic targets in Iran.

An Israeli airstrike on Iranian military installations in Syria left 23 people dead, according to a watchdog group.


This was the largest Israeli operation in Syria since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

The attack on Israeli forces sparked the furious reaction of MP Yair Lapid, who was furious at the European Union for allegedly "appeasing" Iran to secure a deal on the country's nuclear programme. The Iranian missiles were intercepted by Israel's aerial defense system, which concluded in sudden explosions in the night sky.

Israel is signaling to Iran that it can not rely on Russian protection.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran had "crossed a red line" and that the resulting bombardment "was a consequence". The intent: both to set-back the development of Iran's military infrastructure in the country, but also clearly to send a powerful signal to Tehran.

The two sides have been on a collision course for months. Slutskiy warned that the attack undermines an already-shaky situation around the 2015 Joint Plan Of Action (the JPOA), commonly known as the Iranian nuclear deal.
