“Shock and awe” is the only way to describe Israel’s retaliatory attack against Iranian military targets in Syria, this after the Islamic state launched 20 missiles against Israeli forces in the Golan Heights.
The Israeli Defense Force said it launched the counterattack using jet fighters that struck just about every single Iranian facility in country. Iran’s unprovoked aggression comes on the heels of President Trump backing out of the Iran nuclear deal.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu applauded Trump’s decision, calling it “bold.”
In a press release, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) threatened to hold Syria accountable for their complicity in the attacks, saying that it would not “allow the Iranian threat to establish itself in Syria.”
“The Iranian regime’s deployment into Syria of offensive rocket and missile systems aimed at Israel is an unacceptable and highly dangerous development for the entire Middle East.”-White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders
