IDF says attack on Hermon with Iranian rocket, which prompted Israeli airstrikes on Iranian installations, was planned ‘months ago’ and approved by Syria

(SOURCE)   Amid fears of escalation, hours after Israeli airstrikes destroyed Iranian installations and reportedly killed military personnel in Syria, Iran’s air force chief said Monday the country’s youths were “impatient” to fight a war for “Israel’s disappearance.”

“We’re ready for the decisive war that will bring about Israel’s disappearance from the earth. Our young airmen are prepared for the day when Israel will be destroyed,” Brig. Gen. Aziz Nasirzadeh said, according to an Iranian news site.

A former fighter pilot, Nasirzadeh was named Iran’s air chief by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in August after serving as the acting commander for several months.

His comments about eliminating the Jewish state were made during an interview with a state-linked news site, hours after Israel and Iran traded blows over Syria.

In the predawn hours of Monday morning, Israeli fighter jets targeted Iranian weapons storehouses, intelligence facilities and a training camp near Damascus during the bombardment, the Israel Defense Forces said earlier in the morning, accusing Iran of firing a missile at the Hermon ski resort a day earlier.

In addition, the Israeli Air Force bombed a number of Syrian air defense systems that fired on the attacking fighter jets, the military said.

“During the attack, dozens of Syrian surface-to-air missiles were fired, despite the clear warnings expressed [by Israel] to refrain from attacking. As a result, a number of Syrian air defense batteries were also attacked,” the IDF said in a statement.

According to Russia, four Syrian servicemen were killed in those strikes. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said at least seven other people were killed in the Israeli raid, likely Iranian and pro-Iranian troops.

The missile fired on the Hermon, which was intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome system, appeared to come in retaliation for an alleged Israeli strike earlier Sunday against targets in the Damascus International Airport and in the town of al-Kiswah, south of the capital.

But IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis said Monday that the rocket attack had been planned months in advance.

“The Iranian [rocket] launch took place after very lengthy preparations and a decision-making process that concluded months ago,” Manelis said in a statement.

The rocket was launched “by an Iranian force from the Damascus area, from inside territory that [the Syrian government] promised would not host an Iranian presence,” he charged.

“Syria is paying a heavy price for its approval of the [rocket] operation, and the fire yesterday toward the northern Golan,” Manelis added. “The Syrians had prepared for the operation, which was planned beforehand. The attack was an Iranian attempt to strike at Israel.”

In response to the Iranian missile attack, according to the IDF, jets bombed weapons warehouses, including at least one at the Damascus airport, an intelligence facility and a training camp, all belonging to Iran’s Quds Force, the expeditionary arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which Israel and the West accuse of trying to gain a military foothold in Syria.

All of the targets, including the Syrian air defense batteries, were located around Damascus, according to the IDF.

“The Iranian attack on Israeli territory yesterday was more clear proof of the purpose of Iran’s efforts to entrench itself in Syria, and the danger this poses to the State of Israel and regional stability,” the army said in a statement Monday.

Israel has long accused Iran of seeking to establish a military presence in Syria that could threaten Israeli security, and attempting to transfer advanced weaponry to the Hezbollah terror group in Lebanon.

      We live in a fallen world, a world of evil, wickedness and violence, a world headed by Satan. Satan is the ruler of this world, and so it goes that there will be war and violence. Satan and his demons have been rebelling against God ever since his fall from grace. Satan has been attempting to undermine God’s plan ever since. The Jews are God’s chosen people, Satan knows this, and he has been trying to destroy them ever since. They are God’s chosen people, God’s chosen nation, God’s chosen city Jerusalem, and the Savior of the world Jesus Christ came from the Jews!

      Why does most of the world hate the Jews? Why is there so much aggression towards Israel and antisemitism in the world? Why have the Jews been and still are such a persecuted people, unlike any other that we have ever known or seen before?

      The world has been attempting to annihilate the Jews ever since their existence thousands of years ago. The world is also now trying to annihilate the Jews off of the face of the world. Haven’t you heard Islamic rulers saying that they will annihilate the Jews, that they will wipe Israel off of the face of the map? Well my friend the world will come to odds with Israel very soon, this is called the War of Gog and Magog, when the nations surrounding Israel will attempt to wipe her out! But God will intervene and destroy all of these forces supernaturally. Read Ezekiel 38, the War of Gog and Magog.

      Have you noticed over the past several years the build up of nations around Israel? Russia, Turkey, Iran, even Hamas, Hezbollah, and the so-called Palestinians? This isn’t happening by chance, no it was prophesied to happen thousands of years ago by old testament prophets. This is just the precursor to what is coming, and it will happen. How soon? I don’t know but the way things are moving so quickly in the world I would presume not very much longer.

      The only real and true peace the world will ever know is when Jesus Christ comes back to rule and reign, that’s the only time!

      God bless! Maranatha!

      • Satan plan is money and church. Churches have killed many people. Jesua newer wanted this. Only praying help. God has a plan for all ous
