    Israel has placed its forces along border with Syria on high alert amid concerns of a possible Iranian retaliation in the wake of an airstrike on a Syrian airbase, according to local media.

    A number of Iranian military personnel were reportedly killed in an airstrike on Tiyas airbase in western Homs province on Sunday.

    While Russia, Iran and Syria have accused Israel of carrying out the pre-dawn attack, Tel Aviv refused to comment.

    On Tuesday, an Iranian official said the airstrike would “not remain without a response”, according to the Lebanese news channel Al Mayadeen.

    Israeli daily Haaretz said Wednesday the Israeli army has placed its forces along northern border on high alert in the wake of the Iranian threat.

    The Israeli security cabinet is scheduled to meet on Wednesday to discuss the situation near Israel’s northern border.

    For decades, Israel-Iran relations have been characterized by deep animosity.

    While Tehran sees Israel as its biggest enemy, the Jewish state insists Iran must be prevented from achieving a nuclear deterrent.

    Of course it is wrong..as most Usraeli propaganda and talk..But the Iranian presence is factual and Usrael is playing with that fact to do anything it wants.. If you remember, Usrael used to attack Syria all the time..much before the uprising against Bashar..

    It's not Israel that chants for death to Iran and has a clock in Tel-Aviv counting down to Iran's destruction.

    It all depend on threat perceptions.. there is no threat from Germany perceived by Russia, otherwise it will attack..but to the contrary, Germany is the biggest Russian economic partner in Europe..So things are very different in Syria. and beside that, since when Usrael has ever respected anyone..

    the only threat here Israel is trying to push down our throats is that Iran will attack Israel just like Americans play everyone for fool in believing that Iraq has WMD's .. Israel is powerful because of America and they are doing exactly what every Powerful country does, Bullying the weak neighbor ..

    It may seem like a lot of Israeli strikes are occurring but it isn't as intense as people think. Sure they may do a strike a week or every two weeks(there are hundreds of strikes inside Syria not related to Israel every week for proportion's sake) but it is limited and Israel is not intending to get involved in the Syrian civil war. Israel is okay with Iran transferring light weaponry to assist the regime. It does not want other weaponry on the side which may be going to Hezbollah or being stationed in Syria that can slightly deter Israel. Such as air defense or short range ballistic missiles. Iran will not ever use them against Israel except in case of Israeli attack on nuclear reactors in Iran.

    Iran does not seek war with Israel, it wants to deter it so it can focus on other matters/interests which are more important to it. Iran wants influence in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. Iraq is rehabilitating and going to be stable in near future. Syrian regime is now surviving and may be able restore control over most of country and Iran has more influence there now. Hezbollah is doing well in elections in Lebanon. Iran's role in Syria is mostly to organize manpower for the regime and gain more influence in government. It is succeeding in achieving its interests and will not attempt anything against Israel such as 'resisting' it for sake of Palestinians or something like that. It will have those assets and allies in those nations to deter it to focus on more important matters where it has something to gain.

    Israel wants to limit the ability of Iran having another 'deterrent' ability in Syria that isn't run but the Syrian army and can be a bit more unconventional. Israel will not go farther and harm Iran's interests though. So in reality they are both well off and achieving their interests while only ones not doing so are unfortunately the Arabs who continue to be neutral and uphold a war in all forms against other Sunni Arabs. And yet the Arab led bloc and its base of supporters are observing this news thinking an all out war will take place. And like usual publishing false news that Qassem Solimenia(who is just propaganda figure) has been killed in the strike like every other strike before.

    It's frustrating what is going on in Sunni Arab world because of hugely misguided visions of the regimes and their supporters. When do you guys want to change?

    Israel's conflict with palestinians has nothing to do with the Iranian entity. Nothing. They don't share a border, they don't have territorial disputes.

    Iran declared war on Israel simply because it's an Islamic fascist regime.
