IRAN ( PERSIA ) ATTACKS ISRAEL DIRECTLY FOR THE FIRST TIME FROM SYRIA AT MILITARY BASES

Posted on Updated on

Long-exposure photographs showed Israeli artillery launched to intercept projectiles fired from Syria early today

 

Iranian forces fired 20 rockets from Syria at Israeli front-line military positions in the Golan Heights early on Thursday, the Israeli military said – a day after Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal.

It triggered an Israeli reprisal and further escalating heightened tensions between the two bitter enemies in neighboring Syria.

The Israeli military said its Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted some of the incoming projectiles, while others caused only minimal damage. There were no Israeli casualties.

Explosions were then heard in Damascus, with planes overhead, eyewitnesses told AFP.

Israel is hitting targets in Syria, including the Mezzeh airbase in Damascus, according to Israeli media.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said Iran’s Al Quds force had fired the rockets at several Israeli bases, though he would not say how Israel had determined the Iranian involvement.

The incoming attack set off air raid sirens in the Israeli-controlled Golan.

If confirmed, it would be the first time Iran has directly targeted Israel rather than by using one of its proxies, the New York Times reports.

NETANYAHU: ‘IRAN LIED’ – DOCS SHOW IRAN MAINTAINED A SECRET NUKE PROGRAM AFTER OBAMA DEAL

Iran's secret nuclear weapons program revealed by Netanyahu

 

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a nationally televised address on Monday
  • Premier said Israel recently uncovered 55,000 documents and 183 CDs of information from Iran’s ‘nuclear archives’ 
  • The documents prove that Iran has maintained a secret nuclear weapons program in violation of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, Netanyahu says
  • Netanyahu says the documents were moved to a ‘highly secret’ location in Tehran after the nuclear deal was signed 
  • Iranian state television dismissed Netanyahu’s claims as ‘propaganda’ 
  • Israel is urging Trump administration to withdraw from nuclear deal when issue comes up for a decision in 12 days

 

Israel‘s prime minister says that his intelligence services have obtained documents proving that Iran has maintained a secret nuclear program in violation of a landmark agreement Tehran reached with the West.

President Donald Trump used the revelations to insist that he’s been proved ‘100 per cent right’ about Iran, minutes after Benjamin Netanyahu gave a televised address on Monday evening during which he presented documents obtained from inside Iran.

‘Iran’s leaders repeatedly deny ever pursuing nuclear weapons,’ said Netanyahu during a prime-time televised address carried by Israeli networks.

‘Tonight I’m here to tell you one thing: Iran lied.’

MAN, 23, TRAPPED INSIDE BODY OF A BABY – STOPPED GROWING BEFORE HE COULD WALK OR TALK

Posted on Updated on

 Manpreet is unable to maintain a conversation but he can laugh, cry, scream and communicate by gestures

 

A 23-year-old man has spent his life trapped inside the body of an 11-pound baby unable to walk or talk.

Manpreet Singh, from India, has been labelled the ‘pint-sized’ man by neighbours after he stopped growing physically and mentally after a year – leaving him as an eternal toddler.

The young man requires round the clock care from his uncle Karanvir Singh, 45, and aunt Lakhwinder Kaur, 42, who carry him everywhere and dote on him.

Manpreet was born in 1995 but suddenly stopped growing before he could walk and talk, but doctors told his father Jagtar Singh, 50, that he would start growing again.

But that never happened and doctors have been left baffled as to the reason why as his brother Mangaldeep and sister Jaspreet have both physically and mentally developed.

Doctors believe the growth defect is due to a hormone deficiency but are unable to identify exactly what without an expensive medical investigation.
