Israeli missiles were fired late on Tuesday at a target outside the capital, Damascus, Syria's state-run Sana news service said. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the strikes had removed any moral obligation Russian Federation had to withhold the missiles and Russia's Kommersant daily cited unnamed military sources as saying deliveries might begin imminently.
"It's the first hot escalation and actual crossfire between both sides since the Arab-Israeli 1973 war and it's an indication that the Syrian side and its allies will not stand idle about any future Israeli strikes", he said.
Reports of unprecedented clashes between Israel and Iran over Syria have sparked calls for restraint from world leaders anxious about the risk of all-out war, even as both sides say they want to avoid a regional conflict. Israel has carried out scores of air strikes against suspected shipments.
Some protesters set a U.S. flag on fire in Tehran with the nuclear deal scribbled on it. Others stomped on a picture of U.S. President Donald Trump.
Israel said its May 10 strikes were in response to a barrage of Iranian rockets on its positions in the occupied Golan Heights, the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date.
Since its Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has refused to recognise Israel.
When Iran resumes uranium enrichment activities at Isfahan the same year, Israel calls on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the United Nations to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons.
"Iran has always sought to reduce tensions in the region, trying to strengthen security and stability", Rouhani told Merkel in a phone call, according to a statement on the website of Iran's presidency.
"We hit. nearly all of the Iranian infrastructure in Syria", Lieberman said at the annual Herzliya security conference near Tel Aviv. "I send a clear message to the Assad regime that our actions are aimed at Iranian targets inside Syria but if the Syrian army will act against us, we will act against it".
The White House said, "The Iranian regime's deployment into Syria of offensive rocket and missile systems aimed at Israel is an unacceptable and highly risky development for the entire Middle East".
As a result of air strikes of Israel on Iranian facilities in Syria killed at least 27 people. A commander in the pro-Syrian government regional alliance said there were no casualties.
If this is the case, why wouldn't it withdraw from Syria and create peace for Syrians, who now can't sleep because of the thought of a possible new war, this time with Israel? The pan-Arab Al Hayat newspaper reported Thursday that Russian Federation and Israel were developing an agreement to keep Iran out of southern Syria and allow Syrian government forces to retake the region.
In Iran, the news of the fighting was reported as a conflict between Syria and Israel.
