Satellite images show the result of Israeli retaliatory airstrikes against Iranian targets in Syria
ImageSat released satellite images of Iranian targets destroyed in Syria which correspond with the location of the Israeli airstrikes on Wednesday in response to rocket fire on the Golan Heights the day before.
At least 23 militias were eliminated in the strikes, including 16 Iranian “foreign fighters”.
IDF spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Avichay Adraee said Israeli fighter jets hit multiple targets belonging to the Iranian Quds Force – the overseas arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group – and the Assad army, including surface-to-air missiles, weapons warehouses and military bases.
Sources across the political spectrum in Syria acknowledge that Israel essentially wiped out Syrian air defense capabilities in a matter of minutes during the retaliatory strikes.
Israeli military correspondents said that the Israeli strikes were a clear message to Iran that Israel is not Saudi Arabia, and will respond heavily to any direct or indirect attack on Israeli territory.
