On one hand, Iran-US talks continue to be offered and on the other hand missile attacks on Iran-backed Syrian areas are intensifying. Israel also launched missile strikes in Syrian territory after US air strikes in the past. However, according to Syria, its air force remained active in the capital Damascus and the south suburbs. Due to this, no casualties have been reported.
Government TV quoted an unidentified military official as saying that most of the Israeli missiles were dropped before they reached their target near Damascus. The Israeli attack comes at a time when the US launched airstrikes Thursday targeting targets of Iran-backed militia organizations near the Iraqi border in Syria. The US says that the attack was carried out in response to the death of the American contractor during the rocket attack in Iraq.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of attacking a Israeli-owned cargo ship in the Gulf of Oman last week. Netanyahu described it as an Iranian act and said, “Iran is our greatest enemy and I am committed to stopping it.” We are carrying out attacks all over the region. Explain that the ship that exploded on Friday has been described as Iranian handiwork.
