U.S. risks being dragged into regional war with Iran in Syria

Parmenio Sano | 24 Giugno, 2017, 07:09

BEIRUT — The U.S. military said it shot down an Iranian-made, armed drone in southern Syria on Tuesday, marking the third time this month that that the U.S. has downed aircraft affiliated with Syrian President Bashar Assad's government.

Khamenei said the USA forces should not be allowed to enter Iraq "under the pretext of training (Iraqi forces) or other issues", quoted Tehran Times daily.

Neither official would speculate on who is operating the drones that have tried to attack USA and coalition assets, but both said the Iranians have been training the Syrians how to use them.

But in a major escalation, the USA shot down a Syrian fighter jet it said was targeting its Kurdish allies on Sunday.

Iran said it killed 360 terrorists in the missile attack.

Iran is supporting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with ground forces and advisors in coordination with Russian Federation.

The attacks marked the first time that ISIS, a Sunni Muslim group fighting Iranian-backed militias in Syria, has claimed responsibility for an attack in Iran.

Field operatives from the Quds Force, the branch of the Guards responsible for operations outside Iran's borders, gathered intelligence on the targets inside Syria before the strike, the Guards' statement said.


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier Monday warned Iran not to challenge Israel and to watch its own back.

The U.S. -backed Kurdish forces have clashed repeatedly with the Turkish-backed opposition forces, prompting at various instances Russian Federation, the United States and Damascus to come between the sides to maintain peace.

"The missile strikes of the Islamic Republic amounted to a direct response to US President Trump who had threatened Iran with war and isolation just recently", he said.

An Iranian opposition group has found 12 sites, not previously disclosed, where the Islamic government is developing ballistic missiles with the help of North Korean experts.

Backing the missile operation, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted: "Iran's missile capability protects its citizens in lawful self-defense & advances common global fight to eradicate ISIS and extremist terror".

The U.S. -led coalition said that while it is not trying to escalate conflict with Iran and Russian Federation in Syria, it will not back down.

This move has also effectively encircled FSA-controlled desert territory stretching to the Jordanian and Iraqi borders and close to the Tanf garrison where US forces are based. The US has had no diplomatic relations with Iran since the aftermath of the Islamic revolution of 1979 and its interests are looked after by Switzerland.

The IRGC fired six medium-range missiles at Daesh targets in Dayr al-Zawr, which killed more than 170 Takfiri terrorists, including a number of commanders and senior elements, and inflicted heavy damage on their equipment and systems, it added.
