Syria, Iran threaten retaliation against Israel    News agencies
1. Was always going to be the risk of Netanyahu's actions
Assad is having some local problems, an excuse to attack Israel in an attempt to unify the Syrian people will be something he may not be able to pass on. What happened the night before last was different to Olmert's attack on a facility that Syria denied existed. This time Assad can rightly call it an attack on the Syrian people, and can lump Israel as being part of the Free Syria Army in an attempt to unify the Syrian people against them. What was Netanyahu thinking?

2. all of assads russian made AA missles
and our boys roll in and roll out unscathed as usual. I wonder if they will have the balls to take military action against TA or will they attempt a botched suicide bombing again? TIme will tell and either option will just mean massive destruction on their part. Pick your poison Assad & Iran

3. Iran Always Talking Never Fighting
Are they cowards? They just said the following last week: Last week, a senior adviser to Iran's supreme leader said that any attack on Syria would be seen by Tehran as an attack on itself. Now we will see if they are brave enough to confront the IDF.

4. OK Iran
OK Iran lets see if you are all bluster and see that the russian military are made as a rolling thing before the wind.

5. Air Strike
BEAUTIFUL. Keep up the great work Israel.
Mark ,   San Diego   (01.31.13)
6. OMG! serious implications might interrupt N. TLV latte break
Iranian threats again. This can only mean they will do what they do best - send terrorists to attack unarmed civilians. The serious implication is that it may take away time from Iranian secret police torturing Iranians in order to train suicide bombers or other terrorists.

In defence of Natanyahu I can only guess that he had a few more facts before him than you do.In this case it was probably better to act rather than react.

Bibi was thinking "I need to make a coalition." It's not enough that he called early elections because of the financial problems here in Israel. If I was religious I'd pray that he won't run again in another 3 years. Yes, three years! What government goes till the end. LOL

10. "brutal aggression of the Zionist regime" (sic)
salehi condemned the "brutal aggression of the Zionist regime" - sometimes the rhetorical style of arabic (and persian) gets the better of them. (beneath the pathetic propaganda, lies a stark truth: he values a weapons cache more highly than human life.) so far, the "brutal aggression" of the syrians (and their iranian backers) has killed over 60,000 syrians in 2 years, more than have died in the israel-arab conflict, ON BOTH SIDES, in over 60 years. the good news is that the iaf seems to have successfully hit its target, whatever it was, so slightly fewer people will be endangered or killed by the ruthless aggression of the mullahs.

11. Huge victory for Israel AGAIN!!!!
Syria's threats are as empty as her hopes of keeping Assad or his losing cronies in power.
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (01.31.13)
12. If they do respond, Assad/Iran will quickly find out...
...that the IDF isn't as defenseless as the civilians and Jihadists they are currently massacring in Syria.
Naor ,   USA   (01.31.13)
13. shia terror entity's time will come-sooner rather than later
the shia terrorists should not be so impatient to see their nuclear facilities, their icbm facilities, military facilities, their irgc command and control centers reduced to rubble.

14. comparison
it's interesting to compare american and israeli actions. in response to the perceived threat from saddam hussein's iraq, america invaded iraq, killed thousands of iraqis, and occupied the whole country for 10 years. syria's arsenal of rockets and chemical weapons is very real, and so far israel has shown great restraint in only bombing one target, and firing a couple of warning shots. but the really interesting comparison: while baghdad is 10,000 km from washington, damascus is just 200 km (about 2 minutes by scud) from jerusalem!

15. #1, What's it to ya? You are from London, not Tel Aviv.

16. please Iran do as you say

20. #15 Jake
I own property in Tel Aviv, have an Israeli passport and travel to Israel at least two weeks a year I have as much right to talk about my country as you have and the decisions that it's politicians make And to be brutally honest Y net seem to think I have as well
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (01.31.13)
21. Melissa of Arabia
you are as delusional as most of your arab brethren. the shia terror entity does not have the capacity to destroy the jewish state of israel--and israel intends to keep it that way.
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (01.31.13)
22. #20 No, you don't.
You spend 2 weeks a year in Tel Aviv? I believe that's called a visit. You are a Brit, based in London, and your "city and country" should reflect that. Moreover, the name "Sarah B" on these forums is already taken, so try to be a little more original, in addition to a little less dishonest. And to be brutally honest, your lunatic fringe left ideas have been roundly rejected not only by the overwhelming majority of the talkbackers on these forums, but by the Israeli public, you know, the ones who actually live in Israel. The centrist party Yesh Atid, which campaigned on a single issue of equal share of the burden, not "land for peace", has recommended Netanyhau for PM and is about to join a center coalition government...deal with reality, for a change. Or go gloat over Tipsy's 6 and Zehava's 6 seats in the new Knesset.

23. RE Melissa #17, "please wipe them all out"
An American begging Iran to attack Israel and carry out genocide against its people? What can I say? It's a pity the Constitution outlaws cruel and unusual punishments. Because nothing short of that is justified in dealing with unusually cruel people, such as yourself.
Jake   (01.31.13)
24. Sweet Melissa......
Please move to Iran...we want you there when the apocolypse begins. You and your ilk are not welcome in the US.... Love, Koose E Mack

same to your country ,,,, don't forget that hezzbollah drones went through your country's air defense systems for 30 km inland ,,,, nobody is perfect ,,, so don't think that you are untouchable ,,,

26. # 16 Melissa
Worst war crimes in the world? Tell us some actual facts to back up your moronic statements. Tell us how Israel's leaders are worse than Pol Pot or Assad. We would love to hear more of your mindless drivel.
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (01.31.13)
27. # 20
Ynet posts a lot of garbage such as yours because it prompts a lot of responses. Of course you have a right to say what you want and Ynet readers have a right to think you are an idiot.
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (01.31.13)
28. #20 Sarah Whatever: Yes, you do!
Because we have freedom of speech which most of the Arab world, who you seem to love, doesn't! What is strange that YnetNews publishes your hatred of our country but does not publish the point of view od Israelis who love our country, live here with all the dangers and don't just pop in for fives minutes! If you are Jewish Sarah B, just remember that, like the Nazis, the Muslims won't ask you if you love or hate Israel before they chop off you head, like they do in their world, just because you are Jewish!
David ,   Israel   (01.31.13)
29. cipora #21, "Melissa" is worse than delusional
She is vicious and evil, and now openly calls for Iran to carry out genocide against all Israelis. Now we know what these people mean when they say "free palestine".
Jake   (01.31.13)
30. #1 - Besides your support for Olmert which biases your post
How exactly was the attack on Syria's nuke reactor different than this attack on a weapons research center and convoy of SA-17 missiles to a known terrorist group in Lebanon? They are both justified based on security concerns, and yesterday's attack is even more justified due to the immediate implications of the weapons used to target the Jewish State. The Syrian rebels also indicated that they were ones who targeted the research center and not the IAF.
