Israel says hit 'nearly all Iran infrastructure in Syria'

Dozens of rockets were fired from Syria on the Israeli-occupied Golan overnight, a war monitor said Thursday, without confirming Israeli reports they were fired by Iranian forces.

He said on Twitter: "Iranian Quds force fired 20 rockets towards forward IDF (Israeli Defence Force) positions on Golan Heights".

Israel's reported pre-emptive strike on an Iranian missile battery in Syria last night underscores the deepening sense of crisis in the region.

"A direct war is not in Iran's interest - they do not have the military power to defeat Israel - but a series of indirect wars are in their interest", he says.

There may not be much Iran can do about President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal, but across the Middle East, it has a variety of ways it can hit back at the United States and America's regional allies.

"The Middle East is already a tinder-box".

Israel has been on heightened alert in recent days, anticipating a possible Iranian retaliation.

The Golan flare-up with Israel "is just further demonstration that the Iranian regime can not be trusted and another good reminder that the president made the right decision to get out of the Iran deal", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told Fox News.

An Israeli military statement said "this Iranian aggression is another proof of the intentions behind the establishment of the Iranian regime in Syria and the threat it poses to Israel and regional stability".

It is a major ally of Syria and has deployed hundreds of troops to the country.

As oil rose to over $77 in the wake of Trump's Iran announcement, Saudi officials declared they would consult with the UAE on increasing oil production to stabilise prices, a move that would severely impact Iran.

In a failed assault, Iran attacked Israeli soil for the first time in history.

In 2011, US officials said they foiled an Iranian plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, Adel al-Jubeir, the current Saudi foreign minister.
