Will Iran and Israel Go to War? Trump Backs Israel's Right to Use Force As Rockets Fly Across Border From Syria

A tempering sign from Russian Federation came in a report that it is backing away from plans to sell modern missile systems to Iran.

Richard PompeoTrump thanks North Korea for vow to dismantle nuclear site North Korea will open air space, invite media to cover dismantlement of nuclear test site Pompeo off to fast start as Trump's top diplomat MORE said on Sunday that it is "ludicrous" to suggest that recent tensions between Israel and Iran are a result of the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Tehran. State-run TV said they were carried out by the U.S-led coalition, which is operating in the area against IS.

On Thursday, Israel said the Iranian Quds Force shot 20 rockets into the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, and in response the Israel Air Force targeted dozens of targets in Syria. Four were shot-down by Israel's "iron dome" interception system. No one on the Israeli side was reported to have been injured. Israel launched air strikes against Iranian positions in Syria, prompting Iranian forces to fire a barrage of missiles at Israeli positions on the Golan Heights, which in turn triggered Israeli air strikes against over 50 Iranian military targets, killing at least 23 Syrian and "foreign" personnel, most of whom were likely Iranian. "They've now fired missiles into Israel", he said, referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name of the agreement".

The Syrian air defense can not provide powerful protection for Iranians, however, it does not let Israel act in the Syrian air space absolutely unpunished.

Israel has long warned it will not accept Iran entrenching itself militarily in neighboring Syria, where the Islamic Republic backs Assad's regime in the country's seven-year civil war.

As it had said it would, Iran finally retaliated on Wednesday.

The Jewish state has said said it also conducts operations in Syria to stop what it says are advanced arms deliveries to Iran-backed Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed terror group which is said to have 140,000 missiles and rockets aimed at Israel from Lebanon.

On Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran's first-ever direct attack against Israeli military positions "crossed a red line".

"We will expand our missile capabilities despite Western pressure [to curb it]... to let Israel know that if it acts foolishly, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be totally destroyed", Reuters translated Ahmad Khatami as saying during Friday prayers at Tehran University, broadcast on Iranian state television.
