In past weeks, Israel is believed to have carried out a number of strikes against military bases in Syria, killing Iranian and Syrian troops. And though Nice Britain and France had joined the U.S. earlier in taking out a Syrian weapons facility, they selected this time to face with Iran towards Israel and the US.
Israel has said the attack from Syrian territory was carried out by Iran's Revolutionary Guards, which set up Shi'ite Hezbollah in Lebanon in 1982. Earlier this month, Israel's Transportation and Intelligence Minister, Yisrael Katz, was quoted by Arutz Sheva (Israel National News) in praise of a U.S. air strike on Syria and claiming that "We need another 100,000 settlers in the Golan". The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), on 8 May, reminded the world that Iran was keeping to its 'nuclear-related commitments'and that "Iran is subject to the world's most robust nuclear verification regime". According to the Russian military, Syrian air defenses downed "over half" of the missiles launched by Israeli F-15s and F-16s. A outcome of Iran saying that Israel's claims are fake news is that it can't threaten to retaliate against Israel publically for something they deny happened altogether. It's not the ninth inning, but added to the military strike this week for which Israel took credit, and the recent revelation of Israeli intelligence penetrating deep into Tehran to walk off with literally tons of documents and electronic files affirming their lies about plans to build nuclear weapons, their back is up against a wall. His delusional deal abandoned Israel and Egypt, the largest Arab country, and alienated the Sunni Muslims in the moderate Arab states, guaranteeing they would face a nuclear Iran.
The dark clouds of war have been rolling on the horizon for years, fought as a shadow war between Iran and Israel in Syria and Lebanon. Possibly they need to take into account protesting that the $150 billion Obama gave them in money wasn't used to learn them, however as a substitute to assist each Iran's nuclear growth in addition to its army finances which has grown by virtually 40 p.c. Israel knows that Iran is certainly much less of a threat now, before it has nuclear weapons, and could well evaluate that even an all out war would be better now than later when Iran could do more damage.
The leader of the terrorist organization "Hezbollah" Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah once again made threats against Israel.
"The Russian's would like to avoid a situation where the United States and Israel are two parts of the same operation against Iran".

Nasrallah called the creation of Israel, which marks 70 years of its creation Monday, a "mark of shame" for humanity.
The confluence of events on the battlefield comes as the Israeli government has been emboldened by the Trump administration's pro-Israel, anti-Iran stance, manifested by Washington's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
Trump has reassured the world that his word is worth more than former USA presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama, all of whom made the promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem. "Tonight I'm here to tell you one thing: Iran lied".
The game is far from over and will likely go into extra innings or overtime, depending on the metaphor you prefer.
