Iranian general threatens all Israel air bases 'within reach'

Iranian leader Ali Khamenei's adviser, Ai Akbar Velayati said during a visit to Syria that that the attack on T-4 "will not remain unanswered".

You won't hear the Israeli military confirm or deny that it was the IAF that bombed Syria's T-4 military air base in Homs province early on Monday. Participants in many of those protests have been heard to chant, "Forget about Syria; think of us", and to disregard regime propaganda portraying the U.S. as the enemy of the Iranian people. But Israel still seeks US confirmation of a policy of military containment of Iran in Syria.

With ISIS largely decimated, Iran's growing footprint in the Middle East has become a major source of concern for Israel, as well as for fellow USA ally Saudi Arabia.

Last week, Israel reportedly struck a Syrian airfield also used to control Iranian drones.

"When I look at the month of May, I say there wasn't a month of May so risky since 1967", said Amos Yadlin in an interview with Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth. "All of the occupied lands could come under our fire", Tasnim News Agency quoted Salami as saying. "Listen, any war that occurs, be certain that it will lead to your elimination".

The Iranian military commander rejected any division between the Army and the IRGC, declaring that all the armed forces of Iran are united against enemies' plots to divide the armed forces of the country. "Do not trust your air bases, the flames will reach them and they will quickly be made useless", he added. They will get there when you are no longer alive.


One factor that could work to Israel's advantage is Trump's comfort with the use of force, as he showed in the joint mission with Britain and France to strike Syrian chemical weapon sites Friday, April 13.

Following the Iranian foreign minister's optimistic statement about the Middle East's future, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a clear message to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

This seeming call-to-arms was arguably underscored on Thursday when Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami visited Baghdad to promote security ties and to bolster the work of an intelligence-sharing network established there in 2015, with participation from Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Russia.As Newsweek notes, the visit coincided with the unusual move by the Iraqi government to carry out airstrikes against rebel positions in Syria, in a potential sign of closer cooperation with Iran and with the Assad regime over the prosecution of that war.

In a speech Sunday, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah criticized the attack, telling followers the operation failed to achieve its goals. If it was to frighten and break the morale of the Syrian people and their allies, this also failed and the opposite happened.

"Finally, if their goal was to change the equation for the benefit of Israel, the Israelis were also frustrated and stated that Trump's lovely rockets got a zero result", he added.
