    Netanyahu warns Iran it is within range of Israeli airstrikes

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iran on Tuesday that it would be within range of Israeli airstrikes.

    Speaking at an Israeli air force base, Netanyahu cited Iran's threats against Israel, according to Reuters.

    “Iran recently has been threatening Israel’s destruction,” Netanyahu said. “It should remember that these planes can reach anywhere in the Middle East, including Iran, and certainly Syria.”

    He also reportedly viewed F-35 warplanes at the base.

    According to the wire service, a senior Iranian parliamentarian told the semi-official Mehr news agency last week that Iran would destroy Israel if the U.S. attacked Iran.

    Israel has consistently said that multiple options were on the table to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, which Iran has said it is not seeking to do.

    The International Atomic Energy Association, which monitors compliance with the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, confirmed Monday that the country had exceeded the maximum uranium enrichment level established in the agreement. It follows the country's announcement that it would increase its uranium enrichment.

    President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the deal in 2018, and in recent weeks, tensions between the U.S. and Iran have escalated.

    July 9 (UPI) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu personally viewed a squadron of F-35 fighter jets Tuesday, and warned Iran the state-of-the-art aircraft can fly anywhere in the Middle East.

    Netanyahu made the remarks during a visit to Nevatim Airbase near Be'er Sheva.

    Netanyahu held security talks with chief of staff Aviv Kochavi, Air Force Commander General Amikam Norkin and the Air Force Commanders' Forum during the trip.

    "Iran has recently threatened to destroy Israel, and it should remember that these planes can reach anywhere in the Middle East, including Iran as well as Syria," Netanyahu said.

    The prime minister appeared to answer a comment last week from Iranian parliamentarian Mojtaba Zolnour. Amid growing tensions between Iran and the United States, Zolnour said any attack against Tehran would impact Israel as well.

    "If the U.S. attack us, only half an hour will remain of Israel's lifespan," Zolnour said.

    Zolnour made the comment while Iran admitted to breaking the limit set on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium set in the 2015 multinational nuclear deal. It was Iran's first departure from the deal since the Trump administration took the U.S. out of the deal last year.

    Iran said earlier this year it successfully fired a cruise missile with a range of more than 800 miles, and said it can reach Israel.

    Netanyahu: Israel will 'crush' Lebanon if Hezbollah attacks

    Netanyahu also added that unlike the terror leader, Israel will "not reveal the details of our plans."

    Israel will inflict a “crushing” military blow on Hezbollah and Lebanon if Hezbollah dares to strike Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at Sunday’s cabinet meeting.

    Netanyahu's comments came in reaction to an interview Hezbollah's head Hassan Nasrallaeh gave in an interview on Friday with Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV to mark the 13th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War.
    Netanyahu called Nasrallah’s comments “boastful words,” and asserted that if Hezbollah “dared to do something foolish and attack Israel, we would impose a crushing military blow on it and on Lebanon.”

    Unlike Nasrallah, who bragged of “game-changing offensive weapons” and surprises by ground, sea and air, Netanyahu said “I do not intend to elaborate on our plans,” and noted confidently, “Suffice it to say that for years Nasrallah dug terror tunnels, which we destroyed within days.”

    Since December, the IDF has been uncovering and destroying a network of terror tunnels from Lebanon into Israel, which were constructed for Hezbollah terrorists attempting to penetrate Israel.

    Netanyahu’s comments on Sunday came just five days after his response to an Iranian official who threatened last week that Israel would be destroyed within 30 minutes if the US attacked the Islamic Republic.

    “Iran has threatened recently to destroy Israel,” Netanyahu said in a video clip he posted, standing in front of an F-35 Adir plane at the Nevatim Air Force base. “It is worthwhile for them to remember that these planes can reach everywhere in the Middle East, including Iran and Syria.”

    TURKEY'S ERDOGAN: WHOEVER IS ON ISRAEL'S SIDE, WE ARE AGAINST THEM

    Erdogan made the comments as he addressed senior provincial officials from the ruling AKP party in Ankara.
    “Whoever is on the side of Israel, let everyone know that we are against them,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday, according to Iran's Press TV.

    Erdogan made the comments as he addressed senior provincial officials from the ruling AKP party in Ankara.




    “We do not approve of silence on the state terror that Israel blatantly carries out in Palestine,” Erdogan said.


    Erdogan has a history of slamming the Jewish state and its leader, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has a history of slamming him back.

    Erdogan made waves last year when he said that the spirit of Adolf Hitler had re-emerged among some Israeli policymakers.



    In March, a spokesperson for Erdogan slammed Netanyahu for comments he had made regarding the Nation-State Law, inspiring Netanyahu to say that "Turkey's dictator Erdogan attacks Israel's democracy while Turkish journalists and judges fill his prisons. What a joke!"


    Nonetheless, a recent Channel 12 report said that the Mossad had helped prevent numerous terror attacks from Iran and ISIS.

    Erdogan's party took a beating in mayoral elections in June, breaking his aura of invincibility in his country and delivering a message from voters unhappy over his policies.

    The United States said last week it was removing NATO ally Turkey from the F-35 program, as it long threatened, after Ankara purchased and received delivery of Russian S-400 missile defenses. US President Donald Trump has yet to decide on sanctions on Turkey that appear to be required by US law.

    “I would like to once again express that no threats or sanctions... can prevent us from implementing our country’s security priorities,” Erdogan said on Saturday

    From what I’ve gathered this is coming from “diplomats”, and there’s still not 100% confirmation.

    Lebanese official claims Israel preparing to ‘wage war’ against Hezbollah

    Since their last fought war in 2006, Hezbollah has strengthened its military capabilities significantly


    A Lebanese lawmaker affiliated with Hezbollah appeared on a Hezbollah-run television channel Sunday night warning that Israel was preparing to wage war against the Iran-backed group but that it was ready to “confront it.”

    “The enemy is preparing to launch a war on us,” claimed Mohammad Raad, who leads Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc, on al-Manar TV, according to the Times of Israel. “The resistance’s readiness to confront it with our men, society, capabilities and everything we have prepared for it.”

    He added that the Jewish State would be “delusional” to think it could defeat it.

    Israel still considers bordering Lebanon an enemy state after fighting a major war in 2006, considered one of the first of Iran’s many proxy wars.

    Although declared a terrorist group by several western countries, lawmakers of the Iran-backed Hezbollah are currently partners in Lebanon's ruling coalition government, winning 14 seats in the country's last election in 2018.

    Israel and Washington have rallied for more countries to follow in recognizing the entity as a terrorist organization. Some countries, such as Australia and France, only classify its external military wing as a terror group.

    Founded as a fundamentalist militant organization dedicated to fighting Israel in the early 1980s, the group has grown into a powerful political force under the stewardship of its current leader Hassan Nasrallah.

    It is the only faction to have retained its weapons after Lebanon's 15-year civil conflict ended in 1990.

    Since their last fought war in 2006, Hezbollah has strengthened its military capabilities significantly with an estimated arsenal of some 100,000 and 120,000 short-and medium-range missiles and rockets, as well as several hundred long-range missiles trained on Israel.

    Reports indicate this is a joint missile base of #Iran-backed Iraqi militias (Seyed al-Shohada Brigade of the PMF/PMU) & the IRGC Quds Force.

    IRANIAN-BACKED MILITIA: ISRAELI ATTACKS ON IRAQI BASES 'DECLARATION OF WAR'




    The PMF official stated that diplomatic options would pursued, but that military options were still an option.
    Ahmed al-Asadi, a Popular Mobilization Forces official, said on Wednesday that the targeting of PMF headquarters at two bases over the past few weeks and the entrance of Israel into Iraqi territory is a "declaration of war against Iraq, its people and its sovereignty," according to Al-Sumaria.


    "Israel's entry into our national sphere declares war against Iraq, its people, sovereignty and capabilities, and silence on aggression is not a rational position, but rationality and political realism require the exhaustion of diplomatic options with the UN Security Council so that Iraq, its army and its people are in a situation of military deterrence against aggression and drones," said al-Asadi.

    "This Israeli and American act will not pass without an explicit position on it first: At the level of the state and the executive and legislative bodies, I call from my position as a deputy in the parliament and head of the international movement to exercise its national right to defend our sovereignty, which is violated by Israel and the forces supporting it," stated the PMF official.



    Al-Asadi also stressed that action must be taken on an international and regional level to act against attempts to target Iraqi airspace and military forces.


    "We are keeping the option of responding open," said al-Asadi. "They wanted an open war and there is a legitimate and national duty to stop that war in the spirit of open response.






    "We have been mobilized to remain resilient and the threats will not intimidate us. Iraq, with its authority, its people, its mobilization, its armed forces and its resistance factions, will continue to defy the conspiracy, and will not die or break."



    Al-Asadi compared the recent attacks to attempts by ISIS to take control of Iraq five years ago.


    "We stand firmly with the crowd as a strategic and legitimate choice for dignity and a strong barrier against the forces of arrogance, domination and intimidation."

    Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, deputy chairman of the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces in Iraq, announced on Wednesday that the US had allowed four Israeli aircraft to operate in Iraqi airspace and attack bases belonging to Shia militias, according to the independent Iraqi TV network Al Sumeria.


    "We have accurate and confirmed information that this year, the Americans allowed four Israeli drones [into Iraq] via Azerbaijan to work within the US fleet to carry out sorties targeting Iraqi military headquarters," said al-Mohandes, adding that the militia holds US forces responsible for the targeting of PMF bases.


    The PMF also has maps and recording of all types of a US aircraft: when it took off and when it landed, and the number of hours it flew in Iraq, according to the deputy chairman. Al-Mohandes also claimed that US aircraft had carried out reconnaissance missions on PMF positions instead of on ISIS.


    "As we unveil these details – and a forthcoming project for the physical elimination of a number of jihadist figures and supporters of the Popular Mobilization – we declare that the first and last responsible for what happened are the American forces," said al-Mohandes.


    "We have no choice but to defend ourselves and our headquarters with our existing weapons and to use more sophisticated weapons," added the PMF official. "We have waited so long for all our investigations to be thoroughly completed."


    Al-Mohandes added that they will consider any foreign aircraft flying over our headquarters without the knowledge of the Iraqi government as hostile and will "deal with it accordingly," using "all means of deterrence" to prevent attacks on the headquarters.

    Members of the Iraqi Hezbollah militia were killed and wounded during an aerial bombardment of a base by unidentified aircraft in the Saladin province north of Baghdad on Tuesday, according to Al Arabiya.


    The Iraqi Civil Defense reported that there were explosions at a munitions warehouse belonging to the al-Hashd ash-Sha’abi (PMF) at the Balad air base.


    Iraqi Defense Minister Najah al-Shammari stated that there were no causalities in the incident, according to Al Mayadeen TV.

    Iraqi parliament member Mohammed al-Baldawi also claimed that the explosion was caused by an airstrike.


    "We have become fully convinced that there is a systematic targeting of the military, especially the PMF," said al-Baldawi, according to Al Sumeria.


    The MP warned that American forces do not abide by the decisions of the Iraqi government and represent a threat to Iraq's sovereignty.


    "Iraq lacks an independent air deterrent force to prevent continuing air violations, and it is a duty to look into this as soon as possible," said al-Baldawi. "The question today is to the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, who has issued a decision to ban any flight without his consent."


    "Condemnation and denunciation is no longer enough: There should be a real and realistic end to these violations and [to] American and Zionist recklessness," added the MP. "The Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee must take the appropriate decisions, and we are with it in every resolution defending the sovereignty of Iraq."

    Former deputy prime minister Bahaa al-Araji claimed that the cause of the explosions is known, but that officials are afraid to discuss it.


    "If at this point we do not know the sources of the weapons stores explosions at the Falcon camp and the Balad base, then we are too weak to respond," said al-Araji. "Our separation is the cause of our weakness and submission."


    A fire broke out at the PMF air base in the Saladin province north of Baghdad in Iraq on Tuesday, according to Al Sumaria news.
    Director general of Civil Defense Maj.-Gen. Kazim Salman Bohan stressed that the incident was an ammunition explosion inside the PMF headquarters next to the Balad base, according to Al Sumaria. Reinforcements have been sent to the area by order of the interior minister, he said.

    Three airstrikes have hit bases held by Iranian-backed Shia militias in Iraq since the beginning of July.

    On Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to questions about recent explosions in Iraq, saying that, "Iran has no immunity anywhere. A state that says 'We are going to destroy you' – we will act against them wherever needed,'" according to Walla! news. When asked whether this holds true in terms of Iraq, the prime minister responded, "I haven't limited myself."


    Shortly before returning to Israel from a visit in Ukraine, Netanyahu stated that "there are major security challenges to which the intelligence report I received a few minutes ago will testify," according to Ynet.


    The first attack reported on Shia militias in Iraq, which was blamed on Israeli aircraft, happened on July 19 at a base in Amerli in the Saladin province north of Baghdad. Iraqi and Iranian sources blamed Israel at the time, and A-sharq Al-Awsat reported that “diplomatic sources” confirmed the attack, specifying that it was carried out by an Israeli F-35.


    Al Arabiya television news reported that Iranian-made ballistic missiles were transported to the base shortly before the attack via trucks used to transport refrigerated food. The identity of the aircraft which conducted the attack was unspecified at the time, and the US denied any involvement.


    A-sharq Al-Awsat also reported that a second attack by Israel on a base in Ashraf, northeast of Baghdad, had targeted Iranian advisers who were present at the base as well as a shipment of ballistic missiles that had just arrived from Iran.


    Last week, what was likely an airstrike caused explosions and a fire at a weapons depot belonging to the PMF militia south of Baghdad. One person was killed and 29 others were injured in the explosion, according to Sky News Arabia.


    Sources in Iraq issued conflicting statements as to the cause of the attack last week. Some claimed that it was an accident caused by improper storage, while others claimed that Israel and the US attacked the depot.


    Iran has begun moving its assets from areas repeatedly struck by Israel to locations closer to the border with Iraq, specifically the T4 Airbase located between Homs and Palmyra.


    In September, Reuters reported that Iran had transferred ballistic missiles to Shi’ite proxies in Iraq over the course of several months and that it is developing the capacity to build more there. The missiles that were said to have been transferred include the Fateh-110, Zolfaqar and Zelzal types, which have ranges of 200-700 km., allowing them to be able to threaten both Saudi Arabia and Israel

    My sources confirm there are at least 4 Lebanese Hezbollah martyrs as a result of the Israeli attack so far. Israel just crossed a major red line in Syria by targeting military personnel, as opposed to its “precise” strike policy in the past that avoided human casualties.

    In a major operational effort, we have thwarted an attack against Israel by the Iranian Quds Force & Shi'ite militias. I reiterate: Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every sector against the Iranian aggression. “If someone rises up to kill you, kill him first.”

    Make no mistake, this will *definitely* prompt a sturdy Hezbollah response (IRGC most likely to be involved as well), at the time and place of their choosing per usual. Whether the situation will escalate then remains to be unseen at this time
