The Summer of War and Chaos: US-Israel Plan to Balkanize the Middle East
Tensions are at an all-time high in the Middle East as Israel launched more than sixty missiles at Syria because Israel claimed that Iranian forces fired rockets into the Golan Heights, an Israel-occupied territory since the 1967 Six-Day War. A report by Reuters said that
“Israel said it attacked nearly all of Iran’s military infrastructure in Syria on Thursday after Iranian forces fired rockets at Israeli-held territory for the first time in the most extensive military exchange ever between the two adversaries.”
The report went on to mention that
“it was the heaviest Israeli barrage in Syria since the start in 2011 of its war, in which Iranians, allied Shi’ite Muslim militias and Russian troops have deployed in support of President Bashar al-Assad.”
What was interesting about the report was that Israel claimed that 20 Iranian Grad and Fajr rockets were launched from Syria. Reuters’ said that the Trump administration “portrayed its rejection of that agreement as a response, in part, to Iran’s military interventions in the Middle East, underpinning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tough line towards Tehran.” Now here is what Israel claims what happened according to Reuters:
Israel said 20 Iranian Grad and Fajr rockets were shot down by its Iron Dome air defense system or did not reach targets in the occupied Golan Heights, territory captured from Syria in a 1967 war
Iran responded to the Israeli claims in a Zero Hedge report:
In the aftermath of one of the most severe Israeli attacks on Syria “in decades,” Iranian lawmakers said Thursday that Iran had no role in the attack, and that Shia nation doesn’t operate any bases in Syria.
Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, said Israel’s claim that Iran had provoked Israel by firing first was “a lie,” adding that
“every time one resorts to arms, one seeks to hit some particular targets and has to analyze the potential consequences [of the attack],” and that “It would be just egregiously silly to launch a missile targeting the region of Golan Heights [which is heavily guarded by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF)] as it would certainly prompt military response” Ivashov said.
Iran has “absolutely no reasons” to launch a missile strike against Israel, he added.”
In other words, Israel used a false-flag tactic to justify a military strike in Syria claiming that it was the Iranians who fired the missiles at the Golan Heights in the first place. Israel clearly wants a war with Syria and their biggest obstacle to hegemonic power in the Middle East, Iran with Washington’s help of course. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held the “Iran Lied” presentation in Tel-Aviv on Iran’s alleged secret nuclear weapons activity. Netanyahu claimed that
