A missile has been launched from within Syria that struck the southern region of Israel early Thursday morning, setting off a chain reaction of air raid sirens and air-defense systems.
The missile landed near the country’s top-secret nuclear reactor, the Dimona nuclear facility in the southern Israeli district of Abu Qrenat.

In response, we struck the battery from which the missile was launched and additional surface-to-air batteries in Syria.

“Abu Qrenat is deeper within Israeli territory than the usual range of the rockets of Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip,” Reuters reported. “Israeli media have said for weeks that air defenses in the area of Dimona and the Red Sea port Eilat were being beefed up in anticipation of a possible long-range missile or drone attack by Iranian-backed forces – perhaps from as far away as Yemen.”
“In response, we struck the battery from which the missile was launched and additional surface-to-air batteries in Syria,” Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported in regards to its response to the attack.
This latest incident marks the most serious violence between Israel and Syria in years which most likely points to Iranian involvement. Iran maintains a large number of troops and proxies in Syria. It has also accused Israel of sabotaging its Natanz nuclear facility on April 11th and vowed revenge. But the attack on Israel comes mostly from Biden’s radical left foriegn policies and aggressively pursuing Iran to re-enter the Obama administration’s nuclear deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The first report from FDD’s Biden Administration Foreign Policy Tracker said that the administration was trending “very negative” when it comes to Iran.
The report stated:
On the eve of indirect nuclear talks between the United States and Iran, the Biden administration reportedly collapsed on two major negotiating positions that date back to the 2020 presidential campaign – handing Iran strategic victories before talks even commenced. President Biden had vowed not to provide Iran with sanctions relief prior to Iran’s return to “strict compliance” with the 2015 nuclear deal, yet his administration reportedly offered Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for only modest nuclear concessions.
Additionally, while Secretary Blinken told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in January that it was not in the U.S. interest to lift terrorism sanctions on Iran – specifically terrorism sanctions imposed on the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) – the Biden administration is reportedly offering Iran sanctions relief for both the CBI and NIOC. The administration now claims that many sanctions imposed on Iranian entities for supporting terrorism are not “legitimate,” and that any terrorism, human rights, or missile sanctions deemed “inconsistent” with the nuclear deal will be lifted – a stunning change to the terms of the agreement, which the Obama administration claimed.
