Indeed, the version of the incident published by the Israeli media, looks quite strange. Allegedly on the night of 17 March, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered his air force to attack Syria to prevent falling into the hands of the Lebanese movement "Hezbollah" missile Scud-D with a range of 700 km, However, such missiles, as they say, does not exist in nature.
Also in Israel is the belief that the Syrian air force destroyed Iranian missiles Fatah-110.But even in the last modification of these missiles can fly at only 300 km From the Palmyra they can only get to the Northern border of Israel. And what do such weapons in this remote wilderness, which is just a couple of months ago nearly took banned in Russia LIH. In short, the purpose of the attack was something else. The real reason must be sought in global politics.
It is well known that a few months ago, Netanyahu visited Washington, where he met with trump. The new American President unlike Barack Obama very negatively disposed towards Iran, which controls Hezbollah. Of course, the new foreign policy doctrine of the White house is not yet completely defined, but American experts believe that Donald is ready to make "a deliberate increasing of the intensity of military intervention in several conflicts in order to eventually ensure the exit strategy".
So he worked in business for many years: "Boldly and publicly spoke out against their opponents to gain an advantage before entering into the transaction." At the same time, in Syria the Americans are now very few trumps. So could the White house in response to the increased pressure on Iran to request assistance in difficult negotiations with Russia. In this context the Israeli attack seems logical. Of course, trump was hardly given a direct order, but Netanyahu is a very intelligent man, understands the situation perfectly.
Nevertheless, before the strike, Israeli Prime Minister went to Moscow on 9 March, he met with Vladimir Putin. It is well known that during the visit Netanyahu raised the issue about the situation in the border region, near the Golan heights. Israel is strongly opposed to it came under the control of Pro-Iranian forces. And that can happen very soon, "Hezbollah" has already captured 30 settlements. The militants of "moderate opposition" pass this area almost without resistance.
Supposedly, Netanyahu tried to persuade Putin to stop the offensive. But, according to some Israeli media, the results were negative. In the end, the leader of the Jewish state decided to go for confrontation is to show the force of arms. But something went wrong. First, Syria did not, as has happened more recently, to ignore the attack. Air defense of this country fired four Israeli planes from two to three outdated, but fully operational missile complex s-200. Second, the new Ambassador of Israel in Moscow immediately called on the carpet by the Russian foreign Ministry and issued a strict warning. It was a surprise to the Israeli leadership.
The Kremlin has clearly demonstrated that it can also increase the escalation to de-escalation. Especially in this story, the state of Israel (if we ignore the all-off) looks much more vulnerable than the Russian. The sky of Syria in General in recent years has become a real thoroughfare – it sooner or later will be finished. Moreover, Moscow will not tolerate any bombing bases with Russian troops. The position is quite clear and understandable.
However, despite the saber-rattling of Israeli defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who promised to attack Syrian air defenses, in this country hardly anyone wants further aggravation. Yes, and to pull the chestnuts out of the fire for US – employment prospects.
