United Nations chief urges Syria, Israel to halt 'hostile acts'

The Latest: Merkel, Macron call for calm in Mideast

On Thursday, a member of Iran's Security Council warned that Iran's "revenge will come".

The Observatory also said Saturday that at least 86 pro-regime fighters were killed in Syria over the past week in battles against ISIS as regime forces push to clear militants from their last stronghold in Damascus.

According to the Israeli military intelligence, now in Syria are from 1000 to 2000 the Iranian military experts and fighters of divisions "al-Quds".

Since clashes in February in which Iranian personnel were killed at a base in Syria during an Israeli raid, Tehran has vowed to retaliate. Putin wants Iran to remain in Syria as a junior partner in propping up the Assad regime but not acting provocatively otherwise.

Even before Mr. Trump announced the pullout, non-American businesses were wary about making any financial commitments in Iran, fearful of such an outcome.

Israel has made repeated efforts to persuade Moscow not to sell the S-300s to Syria, as it fears this would hinder its aerial capabilities against arms shipments to Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah.

Liberman visited the northern city of Katzrin to debrief residents following Israel's largest air campaign in Syria in more than 40 years, in which it said it bombed over 50 Iranian targets.

Earlier in May, former Israeli Defence Minister, Moshe Yaalon, told newsmen that Israel did not want Syria to receive Russia's S-300, following reports that Moscow might consider deliveries in the wake of US -led attacks.

In the first comments by Iran since Thursday's wave of strikes, the Foreign Ministry condemned the "blatant violation of Syria's sovereignty", Press TV reported.

Russian Federation is backing away from a proposal to supply the Syrian government with a state-of-the-art missile defense system following a visit to Moscow by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to media reports.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron discussed the Iranian rocket attacks and Israel's response in Aachen, western Germany, and called for prudence and de-escalation.

Iran has been active in Syria since the start of the uprising in 2011, which led to the horrific civil war that continues to play out today. Assad and his Russian, Iranian, and other allies have prevailed. "Throw out the Iranians, throw out Qassem Soleimani and the Quds force". The differences between Putin and Netanyahu with regard to Iran, then, appear to be quite stark. Meanwhile, Iran's government has faced growing domestic criticism for pursuing expensive military adventures overseas while the economy stagnates; this latest setback is likely to fuel those grievances.
