Israel Doubles Down on its Military After Facing Newfound Isolation

UN officials Church leaders decry escalating situation in Syria

But Israel's increasing involvement is playing into the hands of Iran. The IAF retaliated by bombing Iran's drone base deep inside Syria. The drone that was operated from a base in Syria traveled 3 to 4 miles into the Israeli territory before it was shot down by an Apache attack helicopter in the Israeli town of Beit She'an, New York Post reported. An Israeli general later said he expected more direct fighting with Iran. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the U.S. is committed to keeping a military presence in Syria to make sure IS does not regain a foothold.

However, his comments were quickly met with condemnation by a senior Iranian official who said the forces were "legitimate" and at the invitation of Syria.

The Post asserted in a February 10, 2018 report ("Israel claims incursion by Iranian drone") that the Jewish state used an Iranian drone's "alleged incursion" into Israeli airspace as a "pretext for Israeli strikes on what it described as Iranian targets in Syria". Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin after the jet was shot down to seek support, but Russia's Foreign Ministry later rebuked him by saying that Syria's sovereignty should be respected. The downing of its jet is also linked with Iran, as Israel claimed that it intercepted a drone sent by Iran and bombed the site used to launch it in retaliation. Instead, Putin is using Iran to provide ground forces and enlisting contractors, like those Cossacks from a private Russian company named Wagner, to fight and die - as dozens did the other day in a USA airstrike - on the ground. In Lebanon alone we have 1.5 million refugees who, in case of a war, might be knocking on Europe's doors.

"We will continue to defend our vital security and other interests", he told reporters during a tour of Israel's border with Syria and Lebanon. This continued in the jump until a couple of USA diplomats cited Israel's right to defend itself, and then blamed Iran.

The terms of the probation include hiring a live-in advisor, submitting to external reviews and taking part in education on sexual violence.

Nonetheless, Russia appears to be the sole country capable of playing the role of mediator, as Moscow has warm ties with both Iran and Israel. But now the consequences are seeping further south to Israel, and the administration's decision to go AWOL is all the more consequential. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, in a loaded remark, said that Iran was involved in "calculated escalation" and threatening regional peace. Both Turkey and Iran are anxious due to their Kurdish minorities, which have argued for independence in decades past. The crisis which erupted seven years ago as a domestic political unrest has turned into a devastating war in which regional powers such as Iran, Israel and Turkey, along with major global powers, the USA and Russian Federation, are involved. Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan all use various Sunni rebels to fight the pro-Iranian, pro-Shiite regime forces, and Israel is using the long arm of its air force.

"By Allah's favor and grace, nothing called the Zionist regime will exist by 25 years from now". Russian Federation is still bombing areas around Damascus not controlled by the regime, which activists say is causing scores of civilian deaths and many people are trapped without adequate food or medical care.

Because it was the first time in over three decades that an Israeli jet was brought down by enemy fire, the immediate response by some analysts was to declare that the conflict in the region had entered a "new strategic phase".

"Today's developments mean the old equations have categorically ended", a Hezbollah statement read.
