Israel accuses Iranian forces of rocket attack

Israeli missile strikes fired at Syria hit military bases, as well as an arms depot and military radar, Syrian state media said on Thursday, without specifying the location.

It comes after Syria accused Israel of launching an attack on one of its military bases on Wednesday, which killed 15 people.

In a dramatic escalation in Middle East tensions, Iranian forces have launched projectiles in their first-ever direct strike on Israeli forces in the occupied Golan Heights.

Mr Gillespie says the attack is "probably a reply to Israel's actions in this area".

While Iranian officials, including the parliament speaker, say they hope Europe will work with them to preserve the deal, President Hassan Rouhani warned Iran could ramp up uranium enrichment in the coming weeks and that there is only a short window to negotiate with the accord's remaining signatories.

Trump said he was reimposing economic sanctions on Iran and pulling the US out of the 2015 worldwide agreement aimed at stopping Tehran from obtaining a nuclear bomb.

Before meeting with Netanyahu, Putin discussed the Israeli air strikes in Syria with his Security Council, the Kremlin said.

Syrian state television was broadcasting footage of its air defences firing, and playing patriotic songs. Dozens have been killed by Israeli fire and hundreds have been wounded. Opposition activists in Damascus said there was ambulance traffic from Damascus to the site. It also enabled Iran to retain its nuclear infrastructure and the ability to reactivate it in the near future. But Israel and Russian Federation have maintained close communications to prevent their air forces from coming into conflict.

Together with Putin, Netanyahu toured a parade celebrating the anniversary of the World War II victory over the Nazis and then met the Russian president at the Kremlin for consultations.

Faced with these dangers, Israel will continue to defend itself, confident in America's support and freed from the specter of a bad deal.

"The role of history is very important -when such a murderous ideology appears, it is necessary to stand up to it in time".

Bomb shelters in the Golan Heights have been activated and opened by orders of the Israeli Defense Forces following Iranian troop movements in Syria.

Israel describes Iran as its biggest threat and Hezbollah as the biggest threat on its borders. "It means we are on a collision course".
