Incoming Missiles Fired By Iran From Syria Into Isreal Proves Trump Was Right To Back Out Of The Nuclear Deal
According to The Times Of Isreal, some 20 rockets were fired at Israeli military bases by Iranian forces in southern Syria just after midnight on Thursday, with some of the incoming missiles being intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system, the army said, amid sky-high tensions on the northern border.
There were no reports of Israeli casualties in the attack. An army spokesperson said damage was caused to Israeli military bases, but that it was “limited.”
The Israeli army said the missile barrage was carried out by members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Forces. This appeared to be the first time that Israel attributed an attack directly to Iran, which generally operates through proxies.
As Reported By BBC News:
On Tuesday Israel took the unusual step of ordering authorities in the Golan to prepare civilian bomb shelters after identifying “irregular activity” by Iranian forces in Syria.
The heightened tension comes in the wake of the announcement by President Donald Trump that the US would pull out of the international deal with Iran.
The agreement – between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany – imposed curbs on Iranian nuclear activities in return for the lifting of international sanctions.
Iran has said it will resume uranium enrichment – which can be used to generate electricity as well as for military purposes – if the other partners pull out too.
So there you have it. Iran threatens that if the world stops financially supporting them, and their war, they’ll ‘continue’ their nuclear program. A program, that they refused to allow inspections be conducted to prove they ever actually stopped.
We don’t expect Trump to bend to Iran’s threats like the Obama administration did when they rushed to form this failed deal in the first place. This isn’t the President from the past and Iran should look at how Trump dealt with the North Korean threats and think long and hard about how they handle this.
