Latest Syria Exchange Marks Start of New Battle in Secret Israel-Iran War, Experts Say

Sunday’s Iranian rocket attack on the Golan Heights and the resulting massive Israeli retaliatory strike in Syria against targets connected to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’s Quds Force marked the opening of a new battle in the ongoing secret war between the Jewish state and the Tehran regime, experts said on Monday.

According to the Hebrew news site Mako, the rocket attack was planned in advance by Tehran in a bid to impede Israel’s ongoing air campaign against Iranian entrenchment in Syria. The IDF had identified preparations for such an attack for several weeks and readied a response plan.

The purpose of the Israeli operation was to restore deterrence against Iran and destroy high-value sites, such as ammunition dumps and intelligence installations. According to Mako, Iran’s ally Russia was informed of the strike just before it was launched.

In an analysis published by the Hebrew news site Walla, military analyst Amir Bohbot wrote, “The ayatollahs in Tehran made a decision several months ago to give full backing to the Quds Force commander, Qasem Soleimani, despite domestic criticism of continued Iranian consolidation in Syria, and despite Israeli determination and the price Iran will have to pay.”
