Advanced Iranian air-defense system targeted in attack on T4 airbase

Israeli officials tell Fox News that Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Al-Quds force, The Iranian elite team, is already planning an attack against Israel.

A separate report said that the target of the air strike was an Iranian drone base.

Iranian officials have repeatedly vowed retaliation.

But experts say Iran's forces in Syria are exposed to Israel's air force and are being warned that they could get knocked out if they cross a line. The official referenced the Iranian drone that infiltrated into Israeli airspace in February, which was shot down by Israel and led to an Israeli retaliatory raid. The report notes that Israel moved quickly to destory Iran's new defense system before it could be set up, citing intelligence officials.

Aerial photos of Iranian bases in Syria were released Tuesday morning showing the scope of the military relationship between the Islamic republic and the Assad regime.

Israel was behind last week's attack on a Syrian airbase that reportedly left a number of Iranian military personnel dead, the New York Times quoted an Israeli military source as saying Monday.

The report noted that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the strike after conferring with U.S. President Donald Trump, in hopes of preventing Iran from using the anti-aircraft battery against Israeli jets carrying out strikes in Syria.

The IDF had tracked an Iranian plane flying a Tor missile system from Tehran to the T-4 base in Syria, and it chose to act quickly to destroy Iran's defense system before it was made operational, intelligence officials were quoted as saying in the Journal report.

But while Iran has used "the fog of war" in Syria to cover its moving as many as 70,000 fighters and tons of military equipment through the country, Israel could crush its forces under that fog too.

The surveillance pictures show IRGC planes and personnel, which the IDF says illustrates the threat posed by Tehran because of how easily weapons can be transported in from Iran.

"It's exposed to direct USA fire, just like it's exposed to direct Israeli fire", he told Business Insider. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi further stated, "The Israeli regime's aggression against Syria is a breach of this country's national sovereignty and territorial integrity and runs counter to all global regulations and principles".

"Israel is headed for escalation", Yaakov Amidror, Netanyahu's former national security adviser, told a Tel Aviv radio station, according to Reuters.
