Syria: 5 Iranian terrorists eliminated in Israeli strikes on weapon warehouses
BREAKING: At least five Iranian terrorists were eliminated in alleged Israeli airstrikes targeting weapons depots belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group near Damascus Airport on Monday night.
After the alleged airstrikes in Syria, Israel closed the airspace over the Golan for eleven days.
According to initial reports, Israel struck a weapons shipment sent from Iran near Damascus International Airport. Several buildings were reportedly destroyed in the strikes.
Arab sources reported that one of the strikes targeted a major Iranian-run ammunitions depot in Jabal al Mane near the town of Kiswa.
A London-based war monitor said that the strikes targeted Iranian-backed terrorists and regime sites. The observatory reported “loud explosions” in the area.
“The Israelis have targeted a major ammunition depot. There were several strikes and the blasts were huge. There are reports that Iranian personnel has been killed,” a Syrian analyst said.
A Syrian anti-aircraft missile landed in northern Jordan as the Syrian air defenses attempted to fight off the strikes.
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.
