Iran is now making drones armed with smart bombs

Iran is now making drones armed with smart bombs

Both the United States, Israel's closest ally, and Russian Federation, which supports Assad in the Syrian civil war, have expressed concern over the latest clashes.

According to The Jerusalem Post, several ministers advocated military action during the meeting, having heard briefings from the security establishment, but no decisions were made.

On Saturday morning, an Iranian drone was flown into Israeli territory, near the Jordanian border, where it was shot down by an Apache attack helicopter.

But how could an aging Soviet-made SA-5 missile knock out one of the most sophisticated fighter jets in operation?

In contrast to Washington's uncritical support for Israel's form of "self-defense" that would have had no purchase on the other side, Russian Federation was the player to step in, so far successfully, to end the conflagration and insist on respect for Syria's territorial integrity.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the attack, saying his country delivered "severe blows to the Iranian and Syrian forces".

More than 24 hours after the incident, however, Israeli accounts of the developments were varied and confused.

Indeed, Iran would be able to project power against Israel from just across the Syrian border courtesy of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's Quds force, offensive weapons and intelligence capabilities.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who is a member of the security cabinet, told a conference in Tel Aviv last week that action must be taken against the Islamic Republic directly.

Another unanswered question: "Why does the media spend so much time investigating flawed individuals while supporting flawed policies that spend too much money on war machines and spend too little money on the peaceful resolution of crises?"

He claimed there was "an underlying sense of entitlement" that Britain could carry on as it was because it was so important. On Wednesday, the cabinet had a meeting on the Irish border, but a satisfactory decision could not be taken.


"I don't necessarily mean armed conflict", he maintained. He also told Washington Post that he was " against any attempt by Iran to establish military bases in Syria or anywhere else". "We will not waste our resources and energy fighting in Lebanese towns while you [Iran's leaders] recline in your chair and watch", Bennett underlined.

Maybe, eventually, the players will get exhausted and forge a power-sharing accord in Syria, as the Lebanese eventually did in 1989 to end their civil war.

According to the Syrian government and its allies, the downing of the Israeli jet signals new rules of engagement in Syria, following more than 100 Israeli strikes that went without any retaliation.

Editor's note: The article has been updated with the correct amount of money allocated by the Finance Ministry for improving bomb shelters and protective areas in northern Israel. Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan all use various Sunni rebels to fight the pro-Iranian, pro-Shiite regime forces, and Israel is using the long arm of its air force.

En route to Rome on Sunday for an anti-ISIS conference, Mattis said the USA had no involvement in the operation "on a military basis". It is a call for all countries to stop hiding behind obscure organizations and accomplish what they want in Syria by themselves.

Iran's growing threat to Israel in southern Syria notwithstanding, Saturday's incident may have been Moscow's way of sending a stern message to Washington.

As the Trump administration is still trying to figure out what to do in the region, "Russia is dictating the way things are going".

The Syrian forces of President Bashir al-Assad have in the past been assisted by Iranian-backed militias and Russian forces.

Israel will face "more surprises" should it again attack Syrian territory, Damascus said Tuesday, after Syria's air defenses shot down an advanced Israeli warplane during the fiercest flare-up between the old foes in 36 years.
