Iranian preparations ahead of possible counterattack against Israel revealed

Israeli officials tell Fox News that Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Al-Quds force, The Iranian elite team, is already planning an attack against Israel.

Perhaps that is just as well, although it brings into sharp relief the absurdity of the action, which was ostensibly a response to a poison gas attack in Douma on April 7, that reportedly claimed 70 lives and caused hundreds of injuries.

As of Tuesday morning, several Israeli websites received details of wide-ranging information about the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' aerial systems in Syria, whose officers and advisers were killed in the recent attack.

On April 14, the US, UK and France carried out joint air strikes at Syria's chemical weapons facilities as a retaliation against the April 7 attacks.

Woman sucked from Southwest Airlines plane died of 'blunt trauma', examiner says
Investigators' initial findings suggest a fan blade snapped off as the jet flew at cruising altitude. "We're stunned. The board said its preliminary examination found evidence of metal fatigue where the blade separated from the hub.

Earlier this month, four Iranian military personnel were killed in an airstrike on Syria's T4 air base, also in Homs.

Khazen also alludes to the warming of relations between Tel Aviv and Washington, which is at its best in decades since Trump was elected president as both view Iran as a common enemy and a threat to their strategic interests.

Even as the United States and its allies and partners have largely destroyed the Islamic State's physical caliphate, Assad - with help from Russian Federation and Iran - has decimated the rebels and is close to winning the civil war.

Despite the rhetoric, experts believe neither Iran nor Israel are looking for open conflict. One of the photographs appears to show Ilyushin planes transporting weapons from Iran to Syria, according to the IDF.

The Russo Brothers On Wolverine In 'Avengers: Infinity War'
Joe Russo nearly certainly knows this, but fanned the fan flames anyway, adding, "We could be close". Prominent Marvel figures like Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and Black Panther also come to their aid.

Following the increase of activity against Iranian targets in Syria, and continued threats by officials in Tehran against Israel, The Israel Project hosted a conference call with Brig. Gen.

The Homs attack had nothing to do with Assad's chemical hut and everything to do with Iran. Furthermore, the fact that the operation was of a limited scope, isolated, pertaining exclusively to the use of chemicals by the Syrian regime and coupled with a repeated assertion by President Trump of his desire to pull out of Syria is hardly serving the Israeli agenda in Syria.

An Israeli-Iranian showdown over Syria has loomed since February 10, when Israel said an armed drone launched from T-4 penetrated its air space. The possibility that Iran might establish one or more bases in Syria, as Russian Federation already has done, poses as much of a threat to Jordan as it does to Israel. Earlier this week, Thomas Freidman, a columnist for The New York Times, quoted a high-ranking Israeli military officer making a rare Israeli confirmation of such an attack.

And keep in mind that this would be a second USA attack. At the same time, USA allies, including Israel and the Persian Gulf states, are anxious that a Syria with Assad, Moscow and Tehran in control would threaten the security of the entire region.
