Syria: Israel Will Face 'More Surprises' If They Attack Again

39;Please attack'

Israel will face "more surprises" should it again attack Syrian territory, Damascus said Tuesday, after Syria's air defenses shot down an advanced Israeli warplane during the fiercest flare-up between the old foes in 36 years. The first is that by raising the cost of Iran's involvement in Syria, the U.S could lead to a change in Iranian behavior thereby "enhancing security for USA allies over the long run".

Iran's growing threat to Israel in southern Syria notwithstanding, Saturday's incident may have been Moscow's way of sending a stern message to Washington.

Such was the case with the Sydney Morning Herald's republication of the Washington Post's coverage of an Iranian drone incursion into Israeli airspace and the subsequent Israeli military response.

All of this points to further conflicts between Israel and Iran's Shia crescent, with the US being notably missing in the conflict as they focus on exterminating the remnants of ISIS. Gen. Ronen Manelis said in a special statement. Its two crew members survived with non-life-threatening injuries and parachuted to safety. Israel is not the only country to have military aircraft shot down by enemy fire in Syria recently. Pilots of one of the fighter jets recognized antiaircraft missiles locking onto their plane, prompting them to eject, Ynet news reported. Anyone with a weapon appears to be invited to a horrific conflict that has seen Syrians bombed by almost a dozen different countries - the USA military alliance in the east of the country includes Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, France has bombed targets in the country, Russia's air force is in constant action, Turkey has invaded the north, while Israel bombs at will - as well as their own government. This is also coinciding with Assad tightening his grip on power, raising the very real possibility that the Syrian dictator could look to reclaim the Golan Heights, which has been occupied by Israel since 2011.

They are vying for control of the Middle East in the wake of the Syrian civil war. Such reports could be exaggerated, because any such facility would risk a direct confrontation with Israel and even the United States.

The two-story home sits across from a park and next to small apartment buildings in an upscale neighborhood. Lisowick reportedly lived in homeless shelters and was not reported missing.

Moreover, capitulation to Israel's policy would have repercussions for Hezbollah and Iran's ability to embolden its ally. By sucking the country into the conflict, both Syria and Iran will be able to contend that Israel is the main culprit. As you know, the president continued regular contacts with his colleagues from Turkey and Iran in recent weeks. An IDF press release said it hit eight Syrian targets, including three aerial defense batteries, and four Iranian positions that it characterized as "part of Iran's military entrenchment in Syria".

The official also said that "as far as we are concerned, the event is over but the Iranians are determined to continue to establish themselves in Syria; the next incident is only a matter of time".

The "escalation in the last few days of war in Syria is of extreme concern", Filippo Grandi told reporters during his 12th February visit.

It was the culmination of a frightening escalation of fighting between competing powers. "The U.S. continues to push back on the totality of Iran's malign activities in the region and calls for an end to Iranian behavior that threatens peace and stability". This has been brought up in its recent meeting with the United States and Russian Federation.

Now, it's Russian President Vladimir Putin's move.
