'Iranian forces' fire rockets at Israeli positions in Golan Heights

Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri delivers a speech during a military parade marking the 36th anniversary of Iraq's 1980 invasion of Iran in front of the shrine of late revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khome

Syrian air defences fired at two Israeli missiles, destroying both, Syrian state news agency SANA said.

Iran blamed Israel for the assassination of at least four Iranian nuclear scientists between 2010 and 2012 and arrested a number of Iranians alleged to have carried out the killings on behalf of Israel's Mossad spy agency.

President Donald Trump's announcement Tuesday that the USA would withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran has triggered uncertainty and threatened to spark more unrest in the Middle East. Several air strikes attributed to Israel have struck at Iranian positions inside Syria, where Israeli leaders accuse Iran of entrenching its forces and threatening the Jewish state's borders.

That attack killed 15 people, including eight Iranians, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, though the commander said there were no casualties.

IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus stated that Israel was not looking to escalate the situation, however, the army remains on "very high alert", and "should there be another Iranian attack, we will be prepared for it".

Israel has been threatening for months that it will not allow an Iranian military presence in the territory of its northern war-torn neighbor, were Iranian forces are fighting alongside the Bashar al-Assad army.

While a clash between Israel and Iran poses the most immediate war threat in the Middle East, Trump's torpedoing of the Iran deal has further destabilised an already explosive region.

Israel describes Iran as its biggest threat and Hezbollah as the biggest threat on its borders.

Israel claimed that the Iranian strikes on its territory caused no injuries or damage.

The war in Yemen, widely seen as a proxy battle between Saudi Arabia and Iran, is another theater Tehran could exploit to inflict pain on its enemies.

White Home press secretary Sarah Sanders discusses New York Occasions" report about Pompeo being "miles away" and Trump's choice to drag the US out of the Iran deal on "The Story'.

It does acknowledge carrying out dozens of raids in Syria to stop what it says are advanced arms deliveries to Iran-backed Hezbollah, another key foe of Israel.

Both Russia and Iran have provided crucial military support to Assad's forces.

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 worldwide sanctions.

"They need to remember the saying that if it rains on us, it'll storm on them".
