Russian Federation is demanding that Israel end its "arbitrary" airstrikes on targets in Syria, two days after the Israeli Air Force struck a series of Iranian military and intelligence targets in response to a rocket strike on the Golan Heights.

Netanyahu said Israel was forced to launch a series of strikes on Monday in response to Iran firing a missile at Golan Heights over the weekend. The Israelis responded with a large-scale air attack Monday night against a dozen targets, half of them Iranian Quds Force sites and the other Syrian army air defense batteries.

Syrian state media confirmed the Israeli strikes, and the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes lasted for almost an hour and were the most intense Israeli attacks since May.

The recent Israeli missile strike on Syria has sparked many debates in Russian media due to widespread criticism of the ineffectiveness of Russian-manufactured air defences, which are now deployed in Syria.

Israel was forced to temporarily close a popular ski resort near the Syrian border in Golan Heights in response to the attack.

Mawarire's lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa had argued that facts presented by the prosecution did not disclose an offense. President Emmerson Mnangagwa said the price increase was needed to combat nationwide fuel shortages.

The comments from the IDF mark the first time Israel has confirmed in real time it has targeted Iranian forces in Syria.

"We have started striking Iranian Quds targets in Syrian territory", a military statement said.

The Israeli raids caused one of the highest death tolls of the raids Israel has undertaken to fight Iran's entrenchment in Syria.

"This is meant to work against Iranian missiles than can fly for thousands of miles", said Rubin.

Despite the current tensions, Israeli analysts say they do not believe Israel or Iran wants a war. "The attack was an Iranian attempt to strike at Israel".

Philip, 97, was trapped inside his overturned Land Rover after it collided with a Kia carrying two women and a baby. He checked on the people in the other vehicle involved in the crash first, two women and nine-month-old baby.

During a visit to an army base on January 23, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signaled that the Syria sorties will continue. Gen. Aziz Nasirzadeh said his country was "fully ready and impatient to confront the Zionist regime and eliminate it from the earth".

The soldiers were members of Iran's Revolutionary Guards.

At this point, the recent developments along with the US decision brings about the question of whether Israel may become more aggressive and envisage going into an all-out-war with Iran in Syria.

The strikes have long caused friction between Israel and Russian Federation, which apart from Iran is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's other major foreign backer.
