Syria: Israeli fighter jets bomb Iranian terror targets near Damascus
BREAKING: Israeli fighter jets bombed weapons depots belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group in Syria.
Syrian air defenses were activated over Damascus in the al-Kiswah area, after the Israeli strikes.
In addition, an IAF combat helicopter targeted a position in Quneitra.
“In response to last night’s attempted attack from Syria, IDF aircraft have struck various military targets belonging to the Syrian Armed Forces. Attacks on Israel will not be tolerated,” Jonathan Conricus, the International IDF Spokesperson tweeted”.
Last night, IDF troops on the southern Golan Heights adjacent to an IDF post spotted a terror squad placing explosive devices next to the security fence on the Israeli border with Syria. IDF troops and an IDF aircraft fired simultaneously towards the squad of four terrorists, eliminating the threat.
“This is the moment when four terrorists attempted to plant explosives near the security fence between Israel and Syria last night… …and the moment we stopped them. We will continue to defend Israel’s borders from all enemy threats,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
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.
