    Israel will strike against Iranian efforts to entrench itself militarily throughout Syria, and not only along the Syrian-Israeli border, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over the weekend.

    Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet meeting that he spoke with both men and discussed the region with an emphasis on Syria.

    “First of all, Iran needs to withdraw from all of Syria,” he said.

    “Second, we will take action – and are already taking action – against efforts to establish a militarily presence by Iran and its proxies in Syria both close to the border and deep inside Syria. We will act against these efforts anywhere in Syria," he said.

    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Israel is an illegitimate state that "will soon cease to exist" and reiterated his call for a referendum to determine the future of Palestine, Iran's semi-official Iranian Student's News Agency reported Friday.

    "The Zionist regime's problem is its lack of legitimacy; it is a regime that was established on hollow foundations," Khamenei said in a speech delivered Friday to leading government officials, members of the public, and ambassadors from Muslim countries on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

    "With divine favor and the aid of Muslim nations, it will surely be destroyed and perish," Khamenei said.

    "One of the basic goals behind the founding of this regime is fomenting dissension and creating problems among Muslim nations," Khamenei added, "but all historical experience shows that the Zionist regime, which faces a problem of legitimacy, will not remain."

    Khamenei also attacked Arab states that have strengthened ties with Israel in the face of the perceived Iranian threat.

    "The fact that some of the weak-minded countries of the region have established open or secret diplomatic relations with this occupying regime or support America's moving of its embassy to Jerusalem will not solve the problems of the Zionist regime," he said.

    Khamenei reiterated the sentiments in a post on his official English-language Twitter account Friday.



    "The #ZionistRegime will not last. All historical experiences imply that with absolute certainty. Undoubtedly the Zionist regime will perish in the not-so far future," he wrote.

    Khamenei also called, in the speech and on Twitter, for a referendum to be held by "real Palestinians," including Muslims, Christians and Jews — referring to Jews who lived in the country before Israel's founding in 1948 — that would determine the nature of the post-Israel government of Palestine.

    "Like all free countries, people of #Palestine--real Palestinians--should be polled to determine the political system of Palestine; that governing body will decide on future of immigrants in Palestine. There's no other solution and this leads to the elimination of the Zionist regime," Khamenei wrote on Twitter.

    Khamenei first proposed the idea of a referendum to determine the future of Palestine in a speech to university professors on June 13.

    Tensions between Iran and Israel have heightened in recent months over Iran's involvement in Syria's ongoing civil war and the America's withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear accord, a move long advocated and encouraged by Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    The former head of Israel's 'NSA,' Ehud Schnerosen said on Sunday that the first cyber target in any future conflict with Iran and Hezbollah should be their energy infrastructure. Speaking at a major cyber conference taking place in Israel, Schnerosen referred to the energy sector as a "major pillar economy, state's cardio-vascular system."

    "We should not attack water, food, healthcare on ethical grounds, and should not attack banks because of the potential butterfly effect," said Schnerosen. "The next 9/11 in cyber will be energy sector."

    Netanyahu: I have repeatedly clarified the basic principles that guide us in relation to Syria. First of all, Iran needs to get out of Syria. Second, we'll act and are already working against attempts to consolidate Iran and its proxies both near the border and deep inside Syria.

    Every few weeks I hear something new about #Hamas in #Lebanon. You know who’s name keeps popping up? Saleh al-Arouri. The #Qassam leader who helped orchestrate the kidnapping of 3 Israeli teens in ‘14. He’s been cozying up w/ #Iran & is definitely got the attention of #Israel.

    BREAKING: Ex-IDF intel chief Yadlin: If Iran goes nuclear, Trump will NOT attack. It will fall on Israel. So maybe leaving Iran deal brought war closer between Iran-Israel.

    I think that needs a bit of explaining - "If Iran goes nuclear" - in what context is that??? .... if Iran would attack Israel with a nuke I wouldn't be saying the US - not Prez Trump - wouldn't attack & help defend any country under those circumstances ....

    Iran definitely acquiring a nuke - that's a whole different ball of wax >>>>> don't count out Little Fat Boy selling off his nuke program to Iran - not just allow it to be dismantled for zippo $$$$$$ - don't forget Iran has plenty of Obammy $$$$$ to spend ....

    It was the NK summit...not Iran summit so no surprises there, although I am not convinced NK will give up their nukes either. (unless they secret them off to Iran somehow)

    Last week's summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un means Iran will probably not come back to table, the IDF's former intelligence chief Amos Yadlin said on Sunday. As a result, Iran will renew uranium enrichment and go for the bomb, he added.

    Yadlin, who was speaking at a major cyber warfare conference at Tel Aviv University added that "If Iran goes nuclear, Trump will not attack it and it will fall on Israel to do so."

    "Maybe leaving the Iran deal brought war closer between Iran-Israel," suggested Yadlin.

    Report: Iranian-backed Syrian militias change uniforms, head toward Golan


    Report: Iranian-backed Syrian militias change uniforms, head toward Golan
    Syrian rebel sources claim up to 500 Iranian-backed militia and members of Hezbollah changed uniforms and are digging in near the Golan in preparation for a major offensive.

    Hezbollah and Iranian-backed Shi’ite militias are concentrating in an area dubbed the ‘triangle of death’ near the Golan Heights as the Syrian regime prepares its major post-Ramadan offensive.


    The offensive is designed to defeat the rebels in southern Syria and has raised concerns in Jerusalem, Washington, Moscow and Amman as a potential crisis looms. This comes as Israel continues warning the Syrian regime to remove Iranian forces from the country.

    On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he had reiterated Israel’s demand that Iran withdraw from all of Syria in conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over the weekend.

    With the defeat of Syrian rebels in Damascus, the regime has begun to concentrate forces along its long front line that stretches from the environs of the southern Damascus countryside down to Daraa near the Jordanian border. This front line ranges from 10 kilometers to just one kilometer from the Golan.

    According to foreign reports, Israel previously stressed to Moscow and Washington that Iranian forces must be kept between 40-60 km away from the Golan border. However, Syrian rebels have accused the Iranian forces and Iranian-backed militias, such as thousands of Shi’ites recruited from Pakistan and Afghanistan, of changing uniform and pretending to be regime soldiers. Bassam Jaara, a commentator on the conflict, asserted on June 15 that there were suspicious movements of Iranian-backed forces north of Daraa.

    In the lead up to the end of Ramadan, which is supposed to be a joyous and peaceful time, the regime escalated shelling in the 'triangle of death’ area, not far from Quneitra and Daraa.

    The villages of Akraba, Kafr Shams and Alhara were struck with shells fired by the regime according to a report at Orient.net. Rebel activists told the Arabic website that Iranian-backed militias and Hezbollah carried out the attacks.

    The latest reports strengthen Syrian rebel claims that various militias had “changed their uniforms to those of the sectarian Tiger militia,” a regime unit. These allegedly included members of the Quds Brigade, which is Palestinian, and Abu al-Fadl Abbas, a Shi’ite unit, as well as Hezbollah.

    “These militias use the weapons of the regime and have settled in fortified positions along the triangle of death.” The report says 500 members of these Iranian-backed forces have moved into the positions not far from the Golan. “Abu Zein Khalid, the military commander of the Southern Front [rebels] told Orient that the Iranian militias met in the area of the triangle of death and wore the dress [uniform] of the regime.”

    A source close to the Syrian rebels said the claims were accurate. “Yes, it is right and more details will emerge today,” the source said. “In short the regime forces are crowding into the area of north Daraa in this triangle of death area because the offensive will include Quneitra.” Any regime movement toward Quneitra, the Syrian rebel held area along the Golan, would be highly sensitive to Israel and risk spillover conflict or the flight of refugees from the shelling.
