  • Will Iran and Israel Go to War? Trump Backs Israel's Right to Use Force As Rockets Fly Across Border From Syria

Missile fire is seen from Damascus, Syria.

Russian Federation warned Iran ahead of Israel's massive attack on its bases and facilities inside Syria, according to the London-based Arabic-language newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat on Friday.

Zarif's delicate diplomatic mission was complicated by reports of clashes between Iranian and Israeli forces in Syria on Thursday.

Iran wants to construct a network of organizations like Badr and Hezbollah, together with the Assad regime, to cement its influence.

For what it's worth, the Mets have been giving each of Cabrera and Flores at-bats in the second and third spots all year long. The Mets have nowhere to go but up for the rest of the game, right? Harvey will join the Reds later this week in Los Angeles.

Mr Keane added: "This is serious stuff, what Iran is up to". Netanyahu put heavy pressure on Putin not to provide the Syrian regime with the missiles.

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton advocated military action against Iran on multiple occasions before going to work for President Trump recently. But the Israeli Air Force has had to be wary of Russia's ultramodern air-defence umbrella of jets and missiles over Syrian air space.

Russian Federation is not in talks with the Syrian government about supplying advanced S-300 ground-to-air missiles and does not think they are needed, the Izvestia daily cited a top Kremlin aide as saying on Friday, in an apparent U-turn by Moscow.

"But it does have to worry about a permanent large Iranian military presence in Syria and the potential for it turning into another Lebanon, with 100,000 rockets poised to hit Israel", she said, adding, "So the Israelis have decided to make it clear to Iran that its presence in Syria must be limited".

Three injured in knife attack in South Africa mosque
He said a third victim had been attacked inside the building, which was then set alight, and had jumped out of a window. Last year, a mosque in Cape Town was covered in pig's blood in what officials claimed was an Islamophobic attack .

In the first comments by Iran since Thursday's wave of strikes, the Foreign Ministry condemned the "blatant violation of Syria's sovereignty", Press TV reported. Israel fears that will allow Iran to more easily transfer weapons to Hezbollah, Lebanon's powerful Shiite guerrilla force, and reinforce the militant group's influence over the region. But Hezbollah has lost an estimated 2,000 fighters in Syria in recent years and attacking Israel would trigger a ferocious response. "Throw out the Iranians, throw out Qassem Soleimani and the Quds force". Saudi Arabia already accuses Iran of providing missiles that Yemeni rebels have fired toward Riyadh.

Israeli strikes on Iranian targets in Syria have the advantage of weakening Iran vis-à-vis Russian Federation inside Syria without Moscow having to confront Tehran directly. More recently, after Israel's 2008 assassination of Hezbollah mastermind Imad Mughniyah, a Hezbollah bombing killed seven Israeli tourists in Bulgaria.

Iran, then, will probably attack directly. AlthoughPutin does not share Netanyahu's vision of Iran as an existential threat, Netanyahu's urging of Trump to withdraw from the JCPOA and thereby cause a rift between the US and Europe has been both useful and welcome.

Iran says it is ready to restart its nuclear programme on an "industrial scale".

Storms possible overnight, some severe Wednesday
Friday night, there is a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with a low of 71, according to the weather service. In the Omaha area, the weather service said Friday will bring a slight chance of showers and a high in the upper 70s.
