The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) do not respond to Israel’s attacks on their positions in Syria to avoid further escalation in the crisis-torn country, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, the head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian parliament, told Sputnik.

“Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has repeatedly said that his country is attacking our positions in Syria. However, one of the reasons why we do not pay attention [to the Israeli attacks] is our unwillingness to have Syria become a war arena [again],” the lawmaker said in an interview.

However, Tehran is ready to give a symmetrical response to any attacks, no matter where they might come from, Falahatpisheh added, answering the question what would be Iran’s response to US potential strikes on the IRGC positions.

Israel conducted airstrikes on Syrian soil on multiple occasions, claiming to have hit Iranian military targets.

Iran denies having a military presence in the Arab Republic apart from advisers sent in at the request of Damascus and to help it fight terrorist groups.

Bah, IRGC are like ISIS : terrorising civilians or going after weakened armies is OK, having to fight a real modern army is hopeless. This is the common point with terrorists and fanatics : their cowardice.

So let me see the hard facts… ISIS at the peak of its power, at the outskirt of Baghdad with the US and Europe just watching preparing to invade the city after the US-backed Iraqi armed puppet just ran away and let it take over 2 billion+ in top-notch bran-new military equipment, Syrian armed forces in disarray and unable to cope with it from their side of the border , and who is suddenly recognized as the… Read more »

You nailed it! I keep repeating Iran is a hidden power. We will never let any inch of our land taken away. Nowadays, Syrians and Iraqis are becoming our warmest friends. Soon, we will be united – Iran, Iraq and Syria, against the main enemies – USA and Israel. And then we will hit it hard. We’re just waiting for the right time. Sure, another war will start when we are ready!

Now nobody still cares about oil prices, thanks to nuclear, fracking, biofuel, solar-cells, wind turbines, recycling of plastic, modern chemistry, etc etc, added to alternate sources of procurement, the time the Iranian regime could hold world’s economy as hostage is gone…
Morever, there is a POTUS who has bälls for the 1st time in decades…
They can even [try] to blockade the Persian gulf, nobody gives a f*ck.
As, due to the way the regime is irrational, I consider it useless to try to do a Kim Jong Un with them. Time to consider doing a Gaddafi.
