    The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps is believed to be planning an attack in retaliation for alleged Israeli strike on T4 airbase in Syria last week.

    Israel is preparing for a direct attack from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps in response for a strike allegedly carried out by the Jewish state against an Iranian operated airbase in Syria which killed seven IRGC soldiers.

    Israel believes that the attack will be launched directly by the IRGC - and not by proxies as done before - under the command of Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani in the form of precision-guided missiles or armed drones from a base in Syria.

    "Israel will react strongly to any Iranian action from inside Syria," a senior IDF source told Sky News in Arabic, adding that Iran plans to attack Israel from Syria, gaining control of the Arab state though its air force.

    Aerial photos of Iranian bases in Syria were released Tuesday morning showing that Tehran has increased the scope of its military relationship with the Assad regime under the auspices of the IRGC’s air force commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.

    The source stated that both civilian and cargo airlines Simorgh and Pouya Air are used by the IRGC as a front for military transport flights bringing in soldiers and weaponry to bolster Iran’s military presence.

    According to the pictures, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps has established several bases in Syria including one military base in the Deir ez-Zor province in eastern Syria seen with Ilyushin planes transporting weapons from Iran to Syria.

    The aerial intelligence photos showed five other airbases with IRGC presence: T4, Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor, Damascus International Airport and an additional airfield south of the capital.

    The aerial intelligence photos supposedly illustrate how Tehran remains capable of flying in surface-to-surface missiles as well as unmanned aerial vehicles to the war-torn country under the guise of humanitarian aid.

    The release of the photos comes ahead of Israel’s 70th Independence Day when Iran will also be marking it’s National Army Day.

    Tensions have risen dramatically between the two arch-enemies following the infiltration of a Iranian drone into northern Israel which the IDF announced on Friday was armed and on a sabotage attack mission against the Jewish State.

    Last week, an alleged Israeli airstrike on Syria’s T-4 Airbase in Homs province killed seven IRGC soldiers, including Col. Mehdi Dehghan who led the drone unit operating out of the base.

    A senior IDF official confirmed to The New York Times on Monday that Israel was behind the attack, stating that the February incident “opened a new period” between the Jewish state and the Islamic Republic.

    “This is the first time we saw Iran do something against Israel — not by proxy,” he said, adding that the strike on the Iranians at T-4 “was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets — both facilities and people.”

    Following the strike, Ali Akbar Velayati, the top aid to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, warned that Israel “should be waiting for a powerful response” to the strike on the airfield, saying "it will not remain unanswered.”

    Khamenei's representative to the IRGC Ali Shirazi also cautioned that "if Israel wants to continue its treacherous existence ... it should avoid stupid measures. If they give excuses to Iran, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be destroyed.”

    I don't see how those satellite images are supposed to be relevant to anything Iran related. Especially the second one. Those airframes look nothing like Iranian drones.

    Iran does not prioritize engaging Israel. It arms Hezbollah heavily as a deterrent effect for its nuclear program. Hezbollah you can call a proxy. Hamas is not a proxy and Iran supports it for popular opinion benefits in the region. Iran has successfully strengthened Hezbollah and it will not ask them to act unless there is a strike on Iran. Hezbollah also has Lebanese interests in mind so those are its own decision making.

    A direct engagement with Israel will not happen. It is not a priority and Israel knows it too and Israel will not over engage itself in Syria. Iran prioritizes Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon more than anything. So do not expect any meaningful response. There is not much tension between the two, contrary to the media hype. Hezbollah will continue to receive arms through Syria and Iran and the rest will allow occasional Israeli strikes on some of these shipments.

    Yeah well, that because of the same story that I told you just a minute ago. Arab countries are giving lip services to Israel, otherwise there is no reason to consider them a threat.

    Israel footprint of imperialism has Arab monarchs as it's cannon fodder

    I don't understand what point you're trying to get across. Are you saying Iran won't respond directly because if it does Arab states will not aid it in such a confrontation? That might be what would go down, but as I said engaging Israel is not a priority for Iran and neither for Arabs. Much of what Iran led axis in region says about Israel is for public consumption and not serious. Instead of saying we seek to overthrow an Arab gov't and replace it with a Shia led one, it sounds much better to say you are struggling against agents of Israel and US. That's why we hear about Israel so much in all your posts.

    Nope, we may attack them first killing their first strike capability. These articles are speaking of possibilities, far from ground realities.

    You got it, damn, congratulations, unbelievable

    Finally you understood that Ale Saud is a puppet of Zionists. Wow, you are a genius :woot:

    Israel won't attack main land Iran but further harassment of Iranian troops and assets in Syria are more likely to follow.
