Israel Expecting Imminent Iranian Missile Strike; Revenge for Israeli Strikes on Iran's Syrian Bases

Israeli defense officials are expecting an imminent Iranian missile strike from Syria -- most likely targeting a military base in northern Israel -- the Jewish Press website reports today (May 7, 2018).

Defense officials believe that Iran wants revenge for the April 9th strike on the T4 army base in Syria, which killed at least seven members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Following the T4 attack, there was a second massive strike in northern Syria on an Iranian controlled base and a secondary base as well as a third facility north of Aleppo, which is believed to have killed dozens of Iranian soldiers, as well as causing a 2.6-magnitude earthquake.

Israel has threatened to strike Iran directly if Iran launches an attack against it.
