IDF strikes Hezbollah terror group positions on Syrian Golan Heights
BREAKING: Reports of several Israeli strikes on Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group positions in Quneitra, in the Syrian Golan Heights.
According to Syrian state media, Syria’s air defense system thwarted some of the projectiles fired from Israel.
Yesterday, Israeli fighter jets allegedly targeted weapons warehouses belonging to the Iranian IRGC terror group.
According to Arab reports, one of the warehouses was located near Damascus International Airport and a second warehouse southwest of Damascus, in the Saboura area.
According to reports, Israel used extra artillery rockets launched from the Golan in order to hit several sensitive targets.
Syria Air Defense Force’s Pantsir S1/2 SAM systems didn’t manage to shoot them down. However, Syrian state tv reported that Syrian air defenses targeted projectiles coming from Israel and brought some of them down.
The strikes follow a statement given to the Guardian Thursday night, in which a diplomatic source said that a convoy of Iranian missiles was transferred into Syria via Iraq’s Anbar province last week.
Prime Minister Netanyahu has said Israel had carried out “hundreds” of attacks over the past few years of Syria’s war to curtail Iran and its ally Hezbollah.
Iran has threatened Israel it would respond if it continued attacking targets in Syria and repeatedly said its military presence in Syria is at the invitation of the Assad’s dictatorship and it has no plans to withdraw.
