Syria: Israel retaliates for missile attack on Israeli ship

(Damascus)  On Thursday the Israeli-owned MV Helios Ray a large car transporter was struck by 4 explosions (2 on each side) as it transited the Strait of Hormuz.

Whilst Iran claimed not to know anything about the missile strikes,  at the time of the strike the ship was surrounded by a number of Iranian ships which are believed to be motherships for Iranian forces. On being inspected on returning to port, it was found that the ship had been struck by 4 missiles purportedly to be the Iranian 
Well tonight, a number of Iranian assets in Damascus were paid back with interest One of the targets reported to have been struck is a Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps headquarters just to the south of Damascus in the suburb of Sayyidah Zaynab with a large number of Iranian casualties reported

With the installation of Biden as President, and his very public move away from his allies in the ME in which to placate the Mullahs who run Iran, we have seen an increase of attacks on those countries which Tehran  sees as enemies
US: Increase in missile attacks
Saudi Arabia: Ballistic and Drone attacks 
Israel: Ship

Encouraged no doubt by how they feel that the US will not do anything to Iran in which to try and get them back to the Nuclear deal that Trump pulled out of. The thing there is Iran was openly sticking the finger at the world regards its nuclear and missile program, Trump unlike the rest, refused to appease the mad mullahs. So now with Biden in the Whitehouse, Iran has it appears embarked on a policy of increasing tensions in the ME in the hope they will garner a much better deal from the US. That my friends is what is known as appeasement.
