Satellite images show damage at site of Israeli airstrike on Iranian targets in Syria
ImageSat International released satellite images of an Iranian base destroyed in Syria, south of the city of Masyaf, which seem to correspond with the location of a reported strike in Hama on Tuesday.
Syrian state media reported on Tuesday that Israeli jets attacked military targets in the northwestern Syrian city of Hama, adding that one person was killed and 12 others were wounded.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, warplanes entered through Lebanese airspace and targeted Iranian positions. A military source told the SANA state news agency that Syrian air defenses intercepted several missiles over the nearby town of Wadi Al Uyun.
Civilians in the area reported hearing explosions and seeing smoke rise from nearby buildings. Additional strikes were reported in the coastal town of Banias, the site of research centers and military installations.
The strikes targeted mainly advanced weapon systems and infrastructure of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards on Syrian territory.
Some 800 missiles and bombs were launched.
An air strike near a US base in southeastern Syria near the borders with Iraq and Jordan has killed at least eight pro-Assad troops, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Monday.
