The Real Next War in Syria: Iran vs. Israel

Iranian foreign minister wants 'respect' from US

Israel insists that it does not support any of the parties to the Syrian conflict.

"Those who threaten [Israel] need to understand there is a price to be paid", Lieberman said on Sunday, speaking to Kan, Israeli public radio. We don't talk to each other.

A day before, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke at a Holocaust memorial ceremony at Yad Vashem and warned that Iran should not test Israel amid rising tensions in Syria. He said that Moscow, in turn, was concerned over the current state of relations between Israel and Iran, as the two countries continued to make accusations against one another.

Israel did not initially comment on the attack.

Israel carried out strikes on targets in Syria after an explosives-laden drone was flown into Israeli airspace on February 10.

CNN reported Wednesday that while weapons shipments into Syria are not uncommon, these flights involving Iran are under scrutiny because they occurred in the days after USA airstrikes on Assad regime targets, carried out earlier this month in response to Syria's use of chemical weapons against civilians.

Iran insists it never meant to build a nuclear weapon.

"The leaders of arrogance (the U.S. and the West) are propping it up so that it continues".

The 2015 deal with Iran, which was negotiated by several world powers, including Germany and the United States, calls on Tehran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions imposed amid fears that the Islamic Republic was seeking to develop a nuclear arsenal.

Western officials have accused Iran of using seemingly civilian airlines as fronts for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps to conduct military transport missions to Syria from Tehran's Mehrabad Airport. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vehemently opposed the agreement, saying it falls short of containing the nuclear ambitions of Iran, a declared foe of Israel.
