United Nations says Lebanon-Israel border 'quiet' after Syria flare-up

13 May 2018

And so the world once more appears to be on the fast track towards fulfilling End Time prophecies which requires propaganda of Iran always being on the cusps of achieving nuclear weapons as cover for preemptive strikes and the United States to play its eschatological role in supposedly entering into the worlds FINAL War so as to fulfill prophecy as I covered in my following video of November 2013 of why the Syrian War would NOT END as it was deemed to be part of End Time prophecies for Jews, Christians and Muslims. Together with the ascendant hawkish faction in the Trump administration, he is convinced that new sanctions and the attrition of Iranian forces in Syria will force Iran's leaders to capitulate and could even bring about their downfall.

Iran's attempt to strike Israel and the powerful response suggests a significant change is afoot in geostrategic dynamics in the Middle East. The Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, stated that the I.D.F. had actually damaged "nearly all" of Iran's military facilities in Syria.

Remarking on the Israeli accusations that Iran fired the rockets against Israeli army positions in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, he said that "Iran has no military presence or bases in Syria ..."

In the wake of President Trump's announcement of the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear accord and the direct clashes between Israeli and Iranian forces in Syria, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and watch a parade.

Tehran condemns the Israeli strikes on the territory of Syria, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi was quoted as saying by the Press TV on Friday.

Netanyahu has long opposed the Iranian nuclear accord, claiming that Tehran fully intends to acquire nuclear weapons. "This is the first openly acknowledged part of that conflict", Mosser says.

European allies are scrambling to save the hard-fought deal but have found themselves increasingly critical of Washington's stance.

Asked how he could reassure Iranian citizens, he said: "We are faithful to our commitments".

"The Iran deal is defective at its core. Get rid of the Iranians and we can, perhaps, change our mode of life here", he said.

In Jerusalem, around 200 Jews gathered at the Western Wall for prayers "against the enemy".

All of this has been brewing for quite some time, so the USA withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal this week is not the cause. Israel responded immediately with its largest series of airstrikes on Syria since 1974.

The army described its sweeping retaliatory strike as a devastating blow to Iran's military presence on the territory of its ally.

Iran's strategic objective is to dominate an arc of countries from Iran, through Iraq, Lebanon and Syria and eventually Jordan as a powerful Shia front that would form the basis not only for Iran's expansion but would put huge military pressure on Israel.

"Already this week, the IRGC has fired rockets at Israeli citizens, and Iran's proxies in Yemen have launched a ballistic missile at Riyadh", it said, referring to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Israeli attacks on Syria were "launched under fabricated and unfounded pretexts", Iran says. "This is the policy, a very, very clear policy, and we're acting according to this policy", he said.

The IAEA said meanwhile that its chief inspector Tero Varjoranta resigned, without giving a reason for his sudden departure.

"The agency's safeguards activities will continue to be carried out in a highly professional manner", a spokesperson for the agency said on Friday.

Sir Richard Dalton, Britain's former ambassador to Iran, said President Trump's withdrawal made war more likely, saying: "It depends how far Trump goes, how much Iran and the other signatories can do to keep the agreement going, and the level of provocation to Israel involved in Iran's reaction".
