Israel on war alert for Iranian reprisal after IDF assaults on Al Qods’ Syrian bases

Iran’s military array in and around Damascus was not eradicated as reported but severely damaged by Israel’s extensive air strikes early Wednesday, Nov. 20, DEBKAfile reports. Only the Syrian air defense batteries which aimed at Israeli warplanes around Damascus and the Syrian Golan, were disabled – not its entire network. This point is important. Since the Israeli jets did not enter Syrian air space but struck from the skies of northern Israel and southern Lebanon, Syrian batteries were directed for the first time to try and down them while over Israel territory.

It is also important to note that the IDF account of the Iranian rocket attack on northern Israel of Tuesday, spoke of “heavy missiles,” a phrase that usually implies medium-range ground-to-ground ballistic missiles. This may be interpreted as a reference to Fatteh-110 missiles. They have a range of 500km and had they not been intercepted by Iron Dome defense batteries, they were therefore capable of reaching into central Israel, and not just the north.
This Iranian attack did not come out of the blue. It followed an earlier Israel strike that morning on one of its facilities near Abu Kamal close to the Syrian border with Iraq. By directing missiles at central Israel, Iran demonstrated two changes of tactics:

  1. Not only is Tehran determined to hit back for every Israeli attack, as it has threatened, but will do so in kind: For every IDF raid on its military assets deep inside Syrian or Iraqi terrain, Iran is poised to strike back similarly deep inside Israel.
  2. An attack on Israel’s central, most densely populated region, would inflict multiple civilian casualties. For that reason alone, the Iranian missile attack on Tuesday should be seen as the direct continuation of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s rocket fire from Gaza on the Israeli city of Beersheba on Nov. 16, i.e. three days earlier. Iron Dome batteries averted major tragedies in both cases, but while highly effective, they are not infallible.

Israeli forces are on high war alert at this moment due to the assessment that this is just the start of a major clash between the IDF and Iran’s elite Al Qods Brigades. Tehran is unlikely to let Wednesday’s massive Israeli air assault in Syria go unanswered and may well strike back within days or even hours.

DEBKA Weekly (for subscribers) in its coming issue out on Friday, November 22, explores both the background and the military ramifications of the first direct duel currently unfolding between Israel and Iran. New subscribers may click here.

    Better to wait a few months more and have sanctions lifted Iran. Be smart and delay and build more missiles and plan your attack so that its effects will be maximized. Israel is going nowhere so be patient and prepare your allies for the inevitable battle that Israel is pushing for.

      As I was waiting for the bus 47 right in front of HaDerech Mall on route 25 in Dimona-city, there was this convoy of army heavy trucks with some sort of long things under tarpaulins, and I couldn’t fend to overhear a discussion right near me, only couple words “…Oh, man, they are getting ready to erase Iran…”, but I have no idea why one would say such a thing.

      Russia is just doing the honorable thing and standing up for a rules based international order. What is the point of having laws and treaties when those continually breaking these laws and killing thousands of people receive no penalty? BDS is the most basic answer, war crimes tribunals are more fitting.

        Not aware that Israel is killing thousands of people but prepared to believe they are killing dozens. You may be thinking about the more than 1300-year war twixt the Shia and Sunni branches of Islam, which indeed has killed large multiples of thousands. About 98% of Muslims killed in conflicts are killed by Muslim-on-Muslim violence.

        The absence of Israel would really not affect the overall Muslim death statistics at all.

    Iranian Mullahs think their errand boys Sulimani and Salami will lob those BIG ROCKETS into central Israel causing big civilian casualties and Israel will keep quiet? If ANY perchance reach such destinations then it must be made crystal clear to Iran that Teheran will also be hit hard. Another thought is that because of the unrest in Iran,are the Mullahs trying to provoke some Israeli attack on the motherland so as to unite the Iranian Street against a common enemy instead of against the Mullahs??? Just thinking.

      Fascist Iran will be annihilated if the US or Israel suffer a WMD attack.

      Tehran is a static target, as are Qum and Forder and the others. The Ayatoolas can bring the End of the Iranian experiment to the end if they are STUPID enough to anger mighty Israel.

      Then there will be no need for gasoline for cars when Fascist Iran is in rubble – AND the US will take their oil for Free and sell it to the world for $2 per barrel.

    @Robert – Percentage of 🏳️‍🌈gay🏳️‍🌈 population: 8.2 (men) and 4.8 (women)
    Believe it or not, Israel seems to be the 🏳️‍🌈gayest🏳️‍🌈 country in the world per capita. Israel is one of the most developed and open-minded countries in the Middle East, we might say, and recent research on the topic of LGBT population among Israelis has shown that even 8.2% of men admit they are gay! Also, Tel Aviv Pride is one of the most visited events of that kind in the world with much over 100,000 participants coming each year.

        Real Jews do good. Real Jews are not the rich of the world, necessarily. So some people who are not Jews are blaspheming by saying that they are what they are not, but they are the real synagogue of Satan, using the name “Jew” to hide themselves.

        Moses after they had been in the caves of Europe for 2000 years he taught them Torah, but he also taught them some of the forgotten tricknology of their father, Yakub. Ever since they came out of the caves, Moses taught them the Torah, but their scholars came up with the Talmud.

          Very wise words indeed, Old School. Its easy to take a something pure and beneficial and twist it into something entirely different to what it was intended. Thats why Jesus spoke out against the Rabbi and the Teachers of the Law. Judaism as g-d had intended is an entirely different thing to what we typically see today, but then the same applies to typical Christianity

    All this is probably intended to distract us from Bibi’s prosecution announcement. Now that he has shown his true colors far fewer people are ever going to trust him again. How dare he say that by enforcing the law that this is a coup? All that Bibi has done is to further divide the nation in an attempt to keep himself out of prison. Someone who would harm Israel for personal gain is our enemy. A Pox on the shmuck and his family for all the harm that they have caused Israel.
