TEHRAN, (BM) – Iran threatens Israel with a tough response due to a Tel Aviv missile strike at Damascus International Airport. This is stated in the publication of the Federal News Agency, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
It is worth recalling that part of the missiles launched from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights was intercepted by air defense systems. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), based in London, confirms information about Tel Aviv’s involvement in shelling Syrian territories. Due to rocket fire, three Syrians and four fighters of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) lost their lives.
FAN journalists write that according to a number of sources on social networks, Israel launched an air strike at Damascus airport several hours after the arrival of an important cargo from Tehran. It is assumed that on board the Boeing 747 were not only components for missiles and other military technologies, but also the new commander of the special forces of the IRGC Esmail Kaani.
It is worth recalling that in early January, the United States killed Iranian General Kassem Suleimani, after which Tehran launched a retaliatory missile strike on American military bases located in Iraq.
Recently, Iran has repeatedly warned Israel of a retaliatory strike.
“Tehran’s tough statements follow one after another, and any new Israeli provocation in Syria could be a reason for a retaliatory strike,” the FAN publication said.
Recall that on Saturday, Major General IRGC Mohsen Rezai gave an interview to Lebanese television channel Al Mayadeen. According to him, any aggressive actions by Washington against Tehran could be a reason for a strike against Israel.
This Wednesday, February 12, Iranian Foreign Minister Abbas Mousavi said that Iran’s response will make anyone who regrets Tehran’s interests in Syria regret its aggression. Yesterday, February 13, Major General Hussein Salami said the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) was ready to strike at Israel.
“If you and the United States make the slightest mistake, we will strike,” said Major General Hussein Salami, commander of the IRGC.
