On April 3, at least 26 people were killed in rocket attacks, believed to have been fired by Israel, in a military base in central Syria.

The Australian report also said that Israeli tanks had fired into Syria, without providing any additional details. A preliminary assessment found there was minimal damage, he added.

According to the Times of Israel, Trump's decision to withdraw from the deal can be counted as one of Netanyahu's greatest victories in foreign policy, equal to the USA recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "If they want stability in Syria, they need the Iranians to change their behaviour, to not establish their forces in Syria", said Mr Nagel, who has sat in on meetings between Mr Putin and Mr Netanyahu when he served as head of Israel's National Security Council. "This event is not over".

In the most direct confrontation between Israel and Iran to date, the two regional enemies exchanged fire for hours during a volatile night in the Golan Heights.

"Air defenses confronted tens of Israeli rockets and some of them reached their target and destroyed one of the radar sites", Syrian state news agency SANA reported, citing a military source. There were no Israeli casualties.

Intelligence is not clear on when an attack could come and what form it would take, they said, with one official noting that "if there is an attack it might not be immediately clear it's Iran".

His statement came as the IDF ordered civilian shelters in the country's northern Golan Heights region to be opened and called up military reserve units after observing what it described as "irregular" activity by Iranian forces in Syria. Iranian forces have been sent to aid the Syrian government in a devastating seven-year civil war against insurgents.

The agreement - between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany - imposed curbs on Iranian nuclear activities in return for the lifting of worldwide sanctions.

On Tuesday, just hours after President Donald Trump announced the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, Israeli authorities said they had identified "unusual movements" of Iranian forces in Syria.

According to the Associated Press, "the military said it is prepared for "various scenarios" and warned 'any aggression against Israel will be met with a severe response'".

Within two hours of the White House announcement, Syrian state news agency SANA reported explosions in Kisweh, south of Damascus. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said aircraft flew over the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, adjacent to Quneitra. This Iran-led strike on Israeli territory, however, is the most extensive of its kind to date. Very few parties appear to actually be ready for a military confrontation with Iran.
