After Syrian and suspected Iranian forces in Syria exchanged fire with Israeli troops deployed in the occupied Golan Heights on Wednesday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman claimed that Israeli jet strikes destroyed "almost the entire Iranian infrastructure" in neighboring Syria. The collapse of the Nuclear Deal has been a key goal of Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his increasingly nationalist government coalition- with the US' announcement that it will pull out, his dream looks set to become reality.

Despite the near constant stream of powerful countries bombing targets in Syria, and Syria's weak attempts to defend against the attacks, Russian President Vladimir Putin's aide in charge of foreign military assistance said Syria had "everything it needs".

Russian Federation on Friday reportedly declined to export its advanced S-300 missile defense system to Syria.

In addition, Israel has taken offense to Iran's continued military build-up in Syria. The demonstrators were tied to the Iranian resistance, which is united through a coalition called the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

A total of 70 projectiles, including 60 air-to-surface rockets and 10 surface-to-surface missiles, were unleashed on Iranian military targets and Syrian air-defense systems near Damascus and in the south of the country on Thursday morning, according to the Russian military.

Israel said the targets the strikes, its largest in Syria since the 1973 war, included weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centres used by elite Iranian forces in Syria.

Israel claimed that its defenses in the Golan Heights, a Syrian territory it annexed without worldwide recognition, then intercepted a number of missiles fired by Iran's Revolutionary Guard. Iran's most recent rocket attacks into Israel is a clear example of this.

Donald Trump, the "America First" President in withdrawing from the Iranian nuclear non-proliferation deal, doesn't seem to be honoring his lead electoral motto.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at La Moncloa palace in Madrid on April 12. These Iranian bases, with their personal and military equipment are part of an Iranian agenda, which has nothing to do with the civil war (which is now in many respects over), but is clearly aimed against Israel and creates a virtual Iranian border with Israel.

Israel has not had any formal diplomatic relations with Gulf Arab states since the country's formation in 1948, which resulted in the mass displacement of Palestinians and a series of wars between Israel and its Arab neighbors. Other countries in the region can point to the subtle influence of Iran in their elections. Top regime apparatchiks in Tehran routinely assert that Bahrain belongs to Iran, as the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has documented (see, for example "Editor Close to Khamenei Says Bahrain Belongs to Iran", March 11, 2018).
