BOILING POINT: Syria Threatens ISRAEL with 'Surprise' Attacks

UN officials Church leaders decry escalating situation in Syria

We consider it necessary to unconditionally respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and other countries of the region.

He promised Israel would respond if the Islamic Republic crossed its "red lines" after a series of clashes. Finally, by taking action against Iran, "the United States would reclaim diplomatic leverage over Russian Federation in Syria".

Lebanon urged concerned countries to "rein in" Israel.

The report said the Israeli army had "refused to comment". This turned out to be the largest Israeli attack on targets in Syria since the civil war began in 2010.

Iran, according to Goldberg-who was the author of the toughest sanctions imposed on Tehran before the nuclear deal was agreed to in 2015-doesn't know what to make of President Donald Trump. "Iran can create a hell for the Zionist regime of Israel", Salami said.

Netanyahu contacted Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to discuss the matter.

British foreign minister Boris Johnson voiced concern on Monday at Iran's role in the military confrontations between Israel, Iran and Syria. And though the immediate mission of the Iranian drone isn't publicly known, Israel's signal to Syria and Iran is quite clear.

After Syrian missiles shot down one of the Israeli jets, an Iranian spokesperson promised a "relentless response" to any more aggression.

But Israel's increasing involvement is playing into the hands of Iran. "This work will continue", he said.

Oxfam: Actress Minnie Driver withdraws support from charity over Haiti prostitute scandal
Oxfam officials are due to meet the Charity Commission on Wednesday after the regulator launched a statutory inquiry. Corporate sponsors like Visa and M&S said they were "monitoring" the situation, according to the Telegraph .

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. Parts of the destroyed Israeli plane were found in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

Israel said the aircraft flew three or four miles inside its territory before being shot down. Whether an escalation will take place immediately is uncertain but the region is now set for the outbreak of an Israel-Iran proxy conflict.

Israel did not declare that the F-16 was brought down by "enemy" fire. "All global & regional actors interested in stabilizing the region should work together to counter Iran, prevent it from basing itself in Syria and stop its support of Hezbollah". A second pilot was lightly wounded.

They do tolerate Israel's airstrikes as well as Iranian activities in Syria, but they are trying to avoid taking sides.

The military says it has the drone in its possession.

"For some time, Israel has been calling attention to Iran's efforts to establish another front on its border and attempt to build a permanent military presence in Syria, a call that has been largely ignored by much of the worldwide community", he continued. United States claims that it had no knowledge of Israel's attacks and Russian claims that it knew nothing about the attack on Israeli jets are doubtful.

According to the Jewish state, an Israeli helicopter shot down the drone inside Israel , north of the city of Beit Shean. He went on to say "Syria, Iran and Russian Federation would appear to have little interest now in getting into a full-blown conflict with Israel".

But yesterday, after the downing of the F-16, an official in the pro-Assad alliance said a "message" had been delivered to Israel. In January, a Russian fighter flew within five feet of a United States reconnaissance plane before crossing the aircraft's flight path over the Black Sea, according to the Military Times. In the past few years, Hezbollah has "issued massive threats" towards Israel with military action. If Israeli lives are lost, the Netanyahu administration's response may be much more severe.
