Iran state media says two vessels have crossed Suez Canal and arrived in Syria, provoking angry response from Israel.
Iranian warships have crossed the Suez Canal and docked in Syria’s port city of Tartous, Iranian state media has reported.
The Mehr news agency said on Sunday that Tehran’s show of support has caused “extreme worry for Zionist forces”.
Youcef Bouandel, professor of international affairs at Qatar University, told Al Jazeear that Iran’s deployment has to be viewed as part of a “broader picture” – that it to say that the Iranian government feels that “Syria is the first step towards putting Iran in the corner”.
“Iran has been having a few standoffs with the West in general over its nuclear programme and over its oil emabrgo,” said Bouandel, who said that the docking of the ships on the Syrian coast had two largely symbolic meanings.
“Iran has been threatening to close the Strait of Hormuz and has been a strong ally of Syria over the last year in particular … the two ships … crossed the Suez Canal without being stopped or searched [which] suggests that they do not carry any weapons,” he said.
Tensions over the nature of Iran’s nuclear programme have lead to ever-tightening sanctions on the country’s oil exports, prompting Iran to threaten to close the strait, the world’s most important choke point for oil transport.
Move a ‘provocation’
Reacting to the news on Saturday, Israel’s foreign ministry denounced the deployment as a “provocation” and a “power play.”
Israel said it will be watching the ships’ movements closely to ensure they do not approach its coast.
“The strategic navy of the Islamic Republic of Iran has passed through the Suez Canal for the second time since the  Islamic Revolution,” Admiral Habibollah Sayari said in remarks quoted by the official IRNA news agency.
That Iran for the second time in one year has docked in Syria, is a sign of the end time alliance around Israel.
Russia is also using Syria as its naval base in the Mediterranean Sea. Also China has ambitions in the Middle East, and sided with the Basher Al-assad regive by casting veto against the US-EU proposal of sanction against regime in the UN.
Since the Basher al-Assad regime has refused to join the Islamic Jihad against the Zionist state, the Islamic movement in unhappy with Syrians. Iran tries to save Basher, by convincing him to side with the International alignment against Israel. Both the EU, Russia, China and Iran want to forces Israel to establish a Islamic state with East Jerusalem as its capital. When the International community agree and unite around this demand, it will be Israel against the rest.
So it will be. Israel be left totally alone with God of Israel. The Word of God says that all nations shall be summoned into Israel and face judgement.
Do not side with the enemies of Israel and His Messiah.
