Israel Strikes Another Iranian Military Base

 In Foreign

About an hour after President Trump pulled out of the Iran Nuclear Deal on Tuesday, Israel struck an Iranian military base in Syria, although that had little to do with the air strike. Casualties were reported by observers and denied by Syrian news media. The incident occurred about 10 miles south of Damascus in the al-Keswa (Kisweh) area.

Syrian news stated that they shot down two of the missiles, but that was not confirmed.

The Golan Heights was placed on alert a few days ago as Iran was expected to launch attacks. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu remarked on May 6 that it would be better to engage Iran “now than later,” according to the Times of Israel.

“We are determined to block the Iranian entrenchment, even at the cost of confrontation. We don’t want an escalation, but we are prepared for every scenario. We don’t want confrontation, but if there needs to be one, it is better now than later.” PM Netanyahu

Back in April, Israel reportedly conducted a strike on an Iranian air base in Homs, Syria as we previously reported.

Israel believes that Iran has reached a level where attacks with bigger military assets are likely, and that they are becoming “entrenched” in Syria. They plan to stop them.
