Syria: 3 Iranian terrorists eliminated in Israeli strikes on weapon warehouses
At least three Iranian terrorists were eliminated in alleged Israeli strikes on Iranian and Assad weapon warehouses near Damascus.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that three “foreign nationals” were killed in three explosions targeting Iranian and Syrian military positions.
“In the Israeli missile attack last night south of the Syrian capital, at least three foreign nationals – probably of Iranian origin – were killed,” the observatory said.
During the strikes, several weapons warehouses were hit, including Hama and T-4 military airbases. There were a total of ten injuries reported, according to local sources.
In neighboring Lebanon, Israeli fighter jets could be heard flying in the country’s airspace at the times of the airstrikes in Syria.
Damascus had said in the past that Israeli warplanes have fired missiles into Syria from Lebanon’s airspace. However, Syrian state media reported that air defenses attempted to intercept missiles fired from inside Israel.
Syrian State TV said one of the Israeli missiles was shot down near the Damascus suburb of Aqraba.
Israel has bombed the T4 base several times in the past years, as Iran has been moving its assets to locations closer to the border with Iraq, specifically, the T4 Airbase located between Homs and Palmyra.
Earlier this month, Israeli satellite imaging firm ImageSat revealed that Iran is building an underground terror tunnel to store weapons and move terrorists on the Iraq-Syria border.
