Israeli defense officials confirmed Monday that their armed forces are prepared to launch an attack against the Iranian capital should they be threatened from Syria or other neighboring countries.
According to the Washington Times, authorities in Jerusalem informed both US and Russian officials that -should a military strike against Israel originate in Syria- they have “plans” to launch major offensives against Tehran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to outline a major defense initiative Monday, following weeks of escalations between the Jewish State and the Islamic Republic over Syria and other regional conflicts.
Earlier this year, Israel launched a major strike against Iranian forces operating inside the civil war-torn nation after anti-air defenses destroyed an Israeli fighter jet.
Tehran vowed a firm response should Israel continue to strike Iranian-backed fighters in the region.
