The Iran deal is done. It is over. Netanyahu lost the battle to stop the deal. But now there is another important Iranian threat to focus on: Iran’s involvement in Syria.
The increasing presence of Iranian forces in Syria is, without doubt, considered a threat to Israel by the majority of those who support and oppose Netanyahu. It is bad enough that Iran has supplied money and tens of thousands of rockets to Hezbollah, now Tehran has between 1,000 and 1,500 troops in Syria. And that number could increase.
Yes, the Revolutionary Guard forces in Syria are for now too busy fighting different Syrian opposition groups and Islamic State. But one of the painful lessons learnt by Israel from the Yom Kippur war of 1973 was: don’t just look at the enemy’s tactical formations and forward positions, listen to its intentions.
