  • No ‘Russian option’ for Israel in Syria

(1) Military - Iran and its proxies have structured their forces in Syria and Lebanon to guarantee mass casualties during their next war with Israel - In Syria, Hezbollah says it has 10,000 fighters ready to attack Israel and to create a single front across all of Israel's north and northeast.

"Iran believes Syria has the right to legitimate self- defence".

Conricus said it was intercepted well inside Israeli territory over the city of Beit Shean, near the Jordanian border.

Russian Federation has also called for restraint in Syria to avoid escalating the situation.

"We urge all the involved parties to exercise restraint and avoid any steps that could lead to the aggravation of the situation. Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn't know how it will end", he said.

The statement of support from the Pentagon came as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will continue to defend itself, including by acting against Iranian efforts to entrench itself militarily in Syria. He also accused Iran of undertaking such an attempt on Saturday, referring to an incident involving an Iranian drone intercepted by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) earlier that day.

"This incident proves that every one of these warnings proved true", Danon added, referring to the operation of the Iranian drone. "However, we are not looking to escalate the situation", Conricus posted on his official Twitter feed. "To cover their crimes in the region, Israeli officials are resorting to lies against other countries", foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi told AFP.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is expected to visit the region in the coming week to discuss Syria and other issues, and is scheduled to visit Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and other countries.

Later, Syria state TV said its air defenses responded to new Israeli raids near the capital Damascus.

Escalation is now up to Iran, and with their hands full in Syria, it's doubtful they want to start a war with Israel.

Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that Moscow, whose forces began intervening on behalf of Assad in 2015, was seriously concerned by the latest developments in Syria.

Syria said its air defences repelled two Israeli raids on its military bases in the centre of the country, hitting more than one warplane during the first.

In Washington, the USA said it "fully supports" Israel's right to defend itself against threats, while in Gaza in the occupied Palestinian territories, the armed wing of Hamas declared full alert among its fighters because of the escalation between Syria and Israel.

The UAV infiltration and the Israeli counter-attack show growing tensions between Israel, Iran and Syria.
