Israel believes Iranian forces planning attack from Syria: security source

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron deliver a joint press conference at the Elysee Palace in Paris

"It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets - both facilities and people", the senior military source told Friedman.

Days before Western airstrikes against the Syrian regime last week, Israel is believed to have carried out its own attack on the regime's T4 airbase in central Syria on April 9.

Iranian forces operate out of the T4 base and seven Iranian military advisors were killed in the attack.

Israeli defense officials said that the majority of Iran's military support is delivered to Syria under the guise of humanitarian aid. Iranian officials in the past week have promised "revenge" against Israel for that incident, even though Israel has not admitted that it was involved in the incident. Ali Akbar Velayati, a top advisor to Iran's supreme leader, said the attack "will not remain without a response".

Three "terrorists" and three members of the Iranian security forces were killed during night-time clashes along Iran's border with Pakistan, state news agency IRNA reported today.




According to the United Nations envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, the Iranian government spends at least $6 billion annually on maintaining Assad's government. Another photograph showed what Israeli officials said was a wing of the Mehrabad International Airport in Tehran, allegedly dedicated to a fleet of Revolutionary Guard aircraft.

Earlier, Hezbollah Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Naim Qassem, warned Israel against hit-and-run attacks on Syria and said that it's aggression against the T-4 base won't go unanswered.

The Islamic Republic itself has threatened to respond to the alleged Israeli strike, saying it would come "at the right time" and that Israel would "regret" the attack. After bombing Iranian units in Syria in retaliation immediately after, an Israel F-16 was shot down by Syrian anti-aircraft fire in one of the conflict's most notable escalations.

Mogherini sought to draw a clear line between Iran's adherence to the nuclear agreement and other actions that the European Union and US find objectionable.
