Israel hints it could hit Iran's 'air force' in Syria

The IDF had tracked an Iranian plane flying a Tor missile system from Tehran to the T-4 base in Syria, and it chose to act quickly to destroy Iran's defense system before it was made operational, intelligence officials were quoted as saying in the Journal report.

"He is the foreign minister of a country that deploys armed drones to Israel and missiles to Saudi Arabia".

Iran, Syria, Russia, and some USA officials have all said explicitly that Israel was responsible for the strike on Tiyas, also known as T-4.

Zarif's comments come after senior Iranian officials threatened Israel with annihilation over the weekend. Seven members of Iran's elite Quds Force were killed in the strike, including the commander of its drone unit in Syria.

Last week, the New York Times quoted an Israeli military source who admitted that Israel was behind a recent attack on a Syrian airbase that reportedly left a number of Iranian military personnel dead.

However, an Israeli security official seemed to acknowledge the leak was sanctioned, telling Reuters that it provided details about "the IRGC air force (which) the Israeli defense establishment sees as the entity that will try to attack Israel, based on Iranian threats to respond to the strike on T-4".

"This (move) has its roots in the hostile policies of Israel toward the Muslim people of the region", the spokesman stated.

John McCain , R-Ariz., and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., have been pushing Johnson's case for years. It reads: " Sylvester Stallone called me with the story of heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson ".

"We have learned ways to overcome our enemies, and we can harm the enemies vital interests anywhere we want", Salami added.

Hossein Salami said that Israel is living in the "mouth of the dragon" and Israelis would have nowhere to go "except the sea", in case a war erupted. "You became arrogant. If there's a war, the result will be your complete elimination", he said.

Salami added in part of a Tasnim News Agency report posted on Twitter: "North and west of Israel are at the intersection of fire; you will not escape".

"I would suggest to all those on our northern border to think again about what they are doing", Liberman said during a tour of the Gaza border area.

Iranian-Israeli relations have always been highly tense, as Tehran doesn't recognize Israel's right to exist.

Then in February, thousands of U.S. troops came to Israel for five days of drilling together with the IDF and IAF in the biennial Juniper Cobra exercise, which involved a simulation of a two-front, massive missile attack on the Jewish state.
