Israel Threatens To Destroy BBC-Reported "Iranian Military Base" In Syria

Following a BBC report that Iran is allegedly building a military base in Syria, Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened to destroy this base and said that Israel “will not allow the Shi‘ite axis to establish Syria as its forefront base,” the London-based Saudi newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported.

The statement was made on November 12. The BBC report quoted intelligence sources and showed some satellite photos which allegedly confirm the claims. The base is allegedly located outside El-Kiswah, 14 km south of Damascus, 50km from the Syrian contact line with Israel.

Asharq Al-Awsat also quoted Tel Aviv sources which said that “Israel believes that the Iranians have no intention to leave Syria or withdraw their loyal militias from the country.” Furthermore, Israeli believes Iran could strengthen its permanent military presence in Syria.

On Monday, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tel Aviv has informed Moscow and Washington that Israeli forces will continue to take action in Syria according to its interests despite any ceasefire.

“We are controlling our borders, we are protecting our country and we will continue to do so,” Netanyahu said. “I have also informed our friends, firstly in Washington and also our friends in Moscow, that Israel will act in Syria, including in southern Syria, according to our understanding and according to our security needs.”

    This could get very ugly, very quickly.

    • Bird of Prey

      Not really. This base is just outside of Damascus. If Israel strikes there, there will be no response from either Syria or Iran.

        Maybe this will be one step too far and the Russkies will finally switch their S-400s on !!.

    • AMHants

      It could do, but, how many years has there been war in the Middle East, with a certain nation’s leaders stirring the pot, from start to finish? However, they never faced a serious military that showed them how things should be done. They just purchased a load of expensive rubbish and assumed their friends would do the fighting.

      Since Russia came to help Syria, how many ME nations have seen a different way of doing things and are just sick and tired of Middle East destruction and for what? They know, each nation taken out, means a step closer to their own suffering the same consequences and they appear to have had enough.

      If Israel wishes to pick a fight, then can you see Iran, China and Russia allowing that to happen? There are two teams fighting to the end, and one is weak and arrogant and the other gaining in strength and friends.

    Israel most attack now or face extinction 11-12 years later on the same front. They have no other choice then acting now.. The more time they take to act the more dengerous becomes the fortification next to them.

    They are in race against time for survival. If they fail to attack I don’t see them surviving. Israel as we know could realistically be gone by 2030-32

    • How did they (Israelis) make all of their neighbors mortal enemies?

      If Israel is in such a hurry to ensure it’s survival then the very last thing it should be doing is both arming and facilitating ISIS, as it has done throughout the past 3 years in unholy alliance with the wahabi-satanist-sunni-saudi “royal” family in return for which BiBi received an $80 Million bung from the Saudi princelings in 2015 to facilitate and finance his re-election. Despite the fact that this bribe is well-known it has barely raised itself above the surface in western media.

      So I for one vote you got carpet bombed with high yield nuclear weapons.

    • Joe

      Good come on attack and see how far israel can go before you see Hez ,Syrian, pmu, Iranian fighters fighting in Israel itself

      Hez has stated publicly, next war will not be a defensive war like Lebanon 2006 and will be in Israel where nukes cannot be used.

      You really think Israel can fight these armies?

      • Nod

        “You really think Israel can fight these armies?“

        Do you really think they wont have help …

        .And are you sure that winning wont be losing …

        “We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force.”

        “Our armed forces are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that this will happen before Israel goes under.”

        ===============================================
        ““If there ever were serious support [for the right of return], Israel would go all out– using nuclear weapons, anything else– to prevent it. So it’s not going to happen.”`
        Noam Chomsky

        desperate people do desperate things.

        • Joe

          Well if the fight is in Israel how are you going to use nukes?

          Iran and allies have more than enough forces attacking in all directions and air Force would not make a difference.

          Remember , Iran have lots of Sam too,plus long range cruise missiles too

          Btw, your talk about destroyingvthe world proves that nukes in Israeli hands with a tiny tiny population is really not a good idea.
          Yet you guys so fearful Iran can have one lousy nuke

          • Nod

            First off, I don’t advocate the use of nukes. Because I am not stupid. And I kind of want my species to survive in peace.

            Proper pronoun you were looking for was “they”. rather than “you”.

            Did you not read the quotes? If it turns out that the Israelite’s are at risk of annihilation, then it wont matter where they shoot them. Desperate people, do desperate things. So they might do anything, just like North Korea might do anything if we decide to invade.

            And it isn’t “my talk”. It is what Jewish people said. Both Chomsky, AND Creveld, are Jewish. cHOMSKY DOES NOT SUPPORT zIONISM, WHILE cREVELD DOES.

            They both seem to agree on the Zionists willingness to use nukes if they are backed up against a wall. That is kind of scary no ?

            I do NOT support American imperialism, Israeli imperials, or any imperialism.

            I also do not advocate a war, between anyone.

          • Joe

            First of use of nukes against a non nuke country is a crime against humanity and those who ordered it will hang .

            Seems they are more dangerous than North Korea when you stated , they do not care where they fire as though the rest of the world are responsible for your misdeeds etc.

            Come back to earth and talk rationally.
            When the fight is in Israel, how can you use the nukes. No way , they are the last type of people who commit suicide unlike those terrorists.

            In the end peace is the best

        • Joe

          I don’t think it is going to happen that in the face of defeat when the fight is in Israel proper Israel will use the nukes.

          They would be committing suicide too.

          With such talks looks like NOrth Korea looks tame.

          • Nod

            they said it, not me. For some, submitting is not an option.

            yet

            From the unknown comes fear, and from fear can come inaction. Could all be disinformation.

            SO what it comes down to, are you a gambling man.

      You guys are really sick and want to attack others based on future fears.

      No wonder wars are everywhere you see guys like you and the Americans now threatening NK out of future fears and millions of others not his will die.

      Are you guys human?

      But good thing know you will lose as you lost right now in Syria.

    • alejoeisabel

      You may be right that the survival of Zionism may end in ten or so years. Please explain why this is bad? Zionism has caused most of the problems in the Middle East. Its imperialistic, racist, and it is an apartheid state…good riddance IMHO.
      There is no room in the Middle East for Zionists and the racist who support it.

    • You can call me Al

      ahhhh well, cheerio.

        Iran is a large country with a large population – even with sanctions on their military technology, they have capacity to wage and sustain heavy infantry war and absorb casualties. Israel is a small country with a small population – despite its subsidized US military technology, they do not have capacity to sustain heavy infantry war and absorb casualties. That is Israel’s core strategic reality and disadvantage.

  • alejoeisabel

    The stolen Syrian Golan Heights belongs to the Syrian people not to the Zionists. Syria has the obligation to recover its stolen territory. There is no ambiguity about this. As long as Syrian Golan Heights is under Israeli occupation, Syria has the right to self defense including fraternal Iranian and Hezbollah military support.

      No one is stopping Syria, and its crack army and ‘elite Tigers’ (lol), from trying to take it back. The reason it doesn’t happen, is because they know they would get their asses kicked.

          And it seems to me, since 911 was an inside job, they are going all out.

          And they have to, since our current ideology is gonna collapse pursuant inequality AND tech unemployment which is and will most definitely, replace most jobs. Our current idea that jobs defines survival, is soon obsolete.

          They know that, while the herd still runs to the polls and votes for whomever is appointed by the rich, for them to vote for. This childlike naivete, and the lack of regard for patterns, is alarming.

          And these appointed men, whatever their political color gets voted in by the herd so they can feel relevant, well these politicos tell the herd, dont worry, we are going to fix our economy (that is wrecked with corrupt credit creation, profit motive and usury) by creating more jobs that are soon to be obsolete.

          There is no fix. There is only impending crash. Which explains the acceleration of imperialism since 911.

    It is unfortunate that Israel has “friends” in Russia, but it is probably true, else Israel would not seriously consider attacking a military base in Syria whose ever it was. Obviously, Putin is weak in this situation and the Israelis know it.
