Israeli defense officials confirmed Monday that their armed forces are prepared to launch an attack against the Iranian capital should they be threatened from Syria or other neighboring countries.
According to the Washington Times, authorities in Jerusalem informed both US and Russian officials that -should a military strike against Israel originate in Syria- they have “plans” to launch major offensives against Tehran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to outline a major defense initiative Monday, following weeks of escalations between the Jewish State and the Islamic Republic over Syria and other regional conflicts.
Earlier this year, Israel launched a major strike against Iranian forces operating inside the civil war-torn nation after anti-air defenses destroyed an Israeli fighter jet.
Tehran vowed a firm response should Israel continue to strike Iranian-backed fighters in the region.
IRAN ON EDGE: Iran’s Hardline Regime on the Brink of COLLAPSE
Despite desperate attempts to crackdown on the deadly protests sweeping across Iran in recent days, the Iranian regime is slowly losing its grip on power; with regional experts predicting the hardline government’s days may be numbered.
Tehran quickly clamped-down as student-led protests shocked the Mullahs and other top government officials; the largest demonstrations against the Islamic Republic since 2009’s “Green Movement” or “Twitter Revolution.”
“At some point the Islamic Republic’s luck presumably runs out.”
Military analysts believe the Ayatollah is struggling to maintain his stranglehold on the nation, saying, “At some point the Islamic Republic’s luck presumably runs out.”
“[The demonstrations have] morphed into basically a youth protest against the system writ large, and it all goes back to the clerics’ monopoly on power,” said Kenneth Katzman, a senior analyst of Iranian affairs for the US Congressional Research Service.
The protests began as a reaction against the brutal regime’s mismanagement of government funds, scarce job opportunities, and low wages, but has transformed into a nationwide protest demanding women’s rights and more liberal freedoms.
So far, at least 21 people have been killed and nearly 500 have been arrested.

IRAN ON EDGE: Macron, Trump Demand NEW DEAL on Iran’s Nukes
French President Emmanuel Macron and President Donald Trump called for a “new deal” on Iran’s nuclear weapons program Tuesday; sending a clear message to Tehran that France and the United States are serious in forging a new agreement with the Islamic Republic.
The two leaders spoke with reporters following a joint press conference at the White House, with Macron confirming that his government is willing to renegotiate the nuclear agreement alongside the Trump administration.
“I can say that we have had very frank discussions on that, just the two of us,” said Macron. “We, therefore, wish from now on to work on a new deal with Iran.”
“I think we will have a great shot at doing a much bigger, maybe, deal,” said Trump.
The remarks come just one day after Iran’s foreign minister claimed there was no “Plan B” should the United States decide to withdraw from the agreement.
