2:09 pm
are reported to be iranian and syrian government says. the killings are a dangerous escalation. in one of the first military exercises of the year. the weapons of war the same. fighting on frontlines far from home and experts worry israel. hostility between the two countries is no secret since the early days of the syrian war eight years ago israeli forces have targeted iranian allies of the government. but continuing israeli strikes. in syria means what started out as a sidebar to the war runs the risk of becoming a parallel conflict. we have been fighting israel in different ways to forty years now there is a direct contact because of their borders we are monitoring their activities and we are capable of retaliation so far we have not decided to enter a direct war with israel because we believe the syrian government should make this
2:10 pm
decision they haven't yet but it may happen and if it does we should expect a direct and very wide war on the ground. with no immediate borders between them open conflict with israel would probably look like proxy battles of the past likely . experts say strikes on each other cities is also a possibility but the most dangerous escalation would come from the involvement of israel. and iran staunchest enemy the united states if that were to happen many experts warn the conflict could become global there is perhaps no clearer sign of the distrust between iran and israel than this monument to their mutual animosity in a speech a few years ago iran's supreme leader. predicted the end of israel giving the country twenty five years until it destroyed itself. his. supporters did the math and put a clock in palestine square in downtown tehran for those who take the word of the supreme leader as literal and divine this countdown clock is more than just
2:11 pm
a publicity stunt for many iranians it is a real time countdown to the end of israel as we know it. but iranians still bear the scars of the eight year war with neighboring iraq in the one nine hundred eighty s. and even with israel a rush to war seems unwanted. first of all war is not a good thing because all countries involved take a loss and if there is a war we won't stop it but we will fight until our last drop of blood to defend our country and even read it from iran won't go for whatever on is just defending itself we don't say war will never happen every moment we expect it but we will defend ourselves and we will surely when. better to avoid war as much as possible is better things can be solved by talks without any deception think about it. while low level skirmishes with israel inside syria may worsen in iran there still seems to be as much talk of peace as there is for war despite open hostility
2:12 pm
