Israel’s northern front amid Iranian entrenchment

Every so often there are reports of aerial strikes in Syria, which the Damascus regime attributes responsibility for - to Jerusalem. Less frequently, purported Israeli action involves surface-to-surface missiles rather than aircraft, because the targets are presumably closer to the Golan Heights armistice border-line. But whatever the tool utilized; the reality is clear. Iran, without whose help Syrian president Bashar Assad could not survive a decade of domestic conflict, is being compensated by exploiting Syrian territory to position its own ‘Quds Force’ assets as well as proxies against Israel. These launching pads, intelligence outposts and munitions depots are immediately added to the Israeli Air Force target-bank.
