Iranian General Warns: Israeli Air Bases 'Within Reach'

On Friday, the vice commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards warned Israel that its airbases are "within reach", in remarks apparently reacting to Israel's publication on Tuesday of a map showing five Tehran-controlled bases in Syria.

Israel did not confirm or deny the bombing of the T-4 airbase in Syria, but Iran threatened to retaliate.

Last Monday, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said his country will sooner or later respond to the recent crime and aggression of Israel.

Netanyahu's statements came amid escalations of tensions between Israel and Iran because of an Israeli air strike against Syria two weeks ago.

The images obtained by Israel's Channel 10 depicted the base before and after the airstrike, revealing "surgical precision" and the attack's limited scope. Another strike, however, which was aimed specifically at the Iranian drone unit at the site and killed seven Iranian Guard troops, was only confirmed by an anonymous "senior military official" to the New York Times.

Israel sees Iran, which has vowed to destroy the Jewish state, as its central enemy in the region.

He said that "these aggressive measures do not prevent our efforts in the fight against terrorism and extremism in the region, and in particular in Syria", adding: "The process of achieving peace in Syria has become more hard after this USA action, but consultations and tripartite ties between Iran, Russia and Turkey must continue, and we must attempt to develop peace and stability and to establish a dialogue in this country".

Global media later reported that at least 14 people - including a number of Iranian military personnel - had lost their lives in the raid.

Hossein Salami said that Israel is living in the "mouth of the dragon" and Israelis would have nowhere to go "except the sea", in case a war erupted.

"We say to the Israeli; we seriously know you". "Your soldiers and civilians will flee, and you won't survive".

"I would suggest to all those on our northern border to think again about what they are doing", Liberman said during a tour of the Gaza border area.

The minister stressed that Israel is ready for every scenario, including a multi-front scenario, adding: "I don't remember a time when we were so prepared and so ready, both the army and the people of Israel".
