Russia has no plans now to deliver advanced S-300 air-defense systems to Syria, President Vladimir Putin's aide on military cooperation said, an apparent reversal following talks between the Russian leader and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israel said early Thursday that Iran's Quds Force fired 20 rockets at Israeli front-line military positions in the Golan Heights.

"They must remember that if it rains here it will pour over there and I hope that we finish this chapter and that everyone got the message", Lieberman said.

"Their presence will only cause problems and damage".

Israel attacked dozens of suspected Iranian targets in Syria in overnight strikes this week that it said were in response to an Iranian rocket barrage.

Mrs May reiterated her condemnation of the Iranian attacks and the UK's support for Israel's right to defend itself in a telephone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"It is clear that last night's incidents are part of a new context in the Middle East, where what we feared happening is becoming reality: the Syrian and Iranian issues are becoming intertwined", Le Drian told BFM TV.

Israel blames Hezbollah for attacks on its interests overseas including in Argentina where the 1992 bombing of the Israeli embassy kills 29 people and a 1994 attack on a Jewish community centre leaves 85 dead. "In light of what is now happening in Syria, it is necessary to ensure the continued coordination" between the militaries of Russian Federation and Israel, he said.

Most economists polled by Reuters expect the BoE to vote 7-2 to keep rates on hold this month and not raise rates until August. The decision comes despite the Bank's governor, Mark Carney, having earlier signalled that a rate rise was incoming soon.


Russian media on Friday were actively circulating a video released by the Israeli military which showed an Israeli missile destroying one such system - a Russian-made Pantsir S-1 air defence battery - on Thursday in Syria.

"We will expand our missile capabilities despite Western pressure.to let Israel know that if it acts foolishly, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground", he said in remarks during Friday prayers that were carried on Iranian state television.

In 2017 Netanyahu says Israel and leading Arab states see "eye-to-eye" on concerns about the growing influence of Iran in the region.

Israel struck back at Iranian targets in Syria in response to the rocket fire, but still Iran wouldn't admit it was responsible for the rocket attacks. The Trump administration's withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran will inevitably be seen by Tehran as a signal that the gloves are coming off and that the new USA policy rests upon containment or maybe even regime change, rather than dialogue.

Israeli officials have expressed disappointment that neither the US nor Russian Federation has committed to prevent the Iranian military from striking root permanently in Syria.

Iran is fighting alongside Assad forces in the civil war.

Israel said among the targets were weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centers used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. Tensions have been rising in the region since President Donald Trump decided two days ago to quit the Iranian nuclear agreement and impose broad sanctions.
