Syria: At least 14 Iranian terrorists eliminated in Israeli strikes near Aleppo
BREAKING: At least 14 Iranian and Iranian-linked terrorists, were eliminated in alleged Israeli strikes targeting the Syrian Agency for Scientific Research (SSRC) in Aleppo, used by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and Hezbollah terrorists to develop missiles, chemical and biological weapons.
According to Arab reports, Israeli fighter jets hit also an Iranian weapons warehouse in the city of al-Safirah in the eastern Aleppo countryside.
Iranian-backed terrorists have long been entrenched in Aleppo province where they have bases, command centers and installed advanced weapons, part of a growing presence across Syria.
Following the strikes, Israel closed its airspace over the Golan for civilian aircraft flying over 5,000 feet, for the next 30 days.
Sources say that Israel’s escalating strikes on Syria are part of a shadow war sanctioned by Washington and part of the anti-Iran policy that has undermined Iranian terrorism in the last two years, without triggering a major escalation.
Israel has acknowledged carrying out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria in recent years, most of them aimed at arms shipments to be headed from Iran to its Shiite proxy Hezbollah.
After alleged Israeli strikes in Damascus last week, Defense Minister Naftali Bennet said: “We have moved from containing Iran’s military presence in Syria to expulsion.”
