Syria and Iran Coordinate Actions against US Threats

Israeli defense officials believe the only power capable of curbing or blocking Iran's regional aspirations is the United States, but so far, Israel has had little success in its efforts to enlist the U.S.to take an active role in Syria.

"Two F-15 planes of the Israeli army hit the airbase between 3.25am and 03.53am Moscow time with the help of eight missiles controlled remotely from Lebanese territory, without entering Syrian air space", the Russian defence ministry was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran, as one of the victims of chemical weapons, strongly condemns the use of such weapons by any party and anywhere in the world based on its principled policies and religious and moral teachings", Qassemi said in a Sunday statement.

Assad has recently been accused of multiple chemical attacks on his own people, including an alleged chemical attack in Douma last weekend that left dozens dead.

"It seems the USA government is looking for an excuse for military intervention", Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said has he arrived in Brazil early on Tuesday, according to state media. In his view "without a solid military stronghold in Syria, America's ability to counter the Terrible Trio's sinister ambitions would be put at severe risk".


Tehran, which usually remains mum about Israeli strikes harming its assets in Syria, acknowledged - through its semi-official media outlets - that Iranians were killed by Israel's warplanes, and vowed revenge.

US President Donald Trump has warned of retaliatory action for a suspected chemical weapons attack on Saturday in eastern Ghouta, an insurgent stronghold near Damascus.

The OPCW's fact-finding mission for Syria was established in April 2014 to confirm chemical weapons use, but it does not have the mandate to establish who is responsible.

Syria denies ever using chemical weapons during the war and says it eliminated its chemical arsenal under a 2013 agreement brokered by the USA and Russian Federation. The OPCW has destroyed 100 per cent of all the country's declared toxic stockpiles, but Uzumcu has repeatedly said there were gaps in the declaration by the Syrian regime.

The organization, also known as the White Helmets, and the Syrian American Medical Society, a medical relief organization, did not identify the substance used but said survivors treated at clinics smelled strongly of chlorine.
