At least 5 Iranian-backed terrorists eliminated in airstrikes near Syria-Iraq border
Iranian weapon warehouses and rocket launchers were targeted on Wednesday evening in Syria near the border with Iraq, eliminating five Iran-backed terrorists and injuring at least nine others.
Both Israel and Saudi Arabia have been blamed for the strikes targeting bases belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards terror group, the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group, and other Iraqi pro-Iran terror groups in Albukamal area.
Local sources said that Saudi fighter jets have been spotted along with “other” fighter jets during the strikes.
The attacks resulted in the destruction of weapon warehouses and rocket launchers.
Following the strikes, the terrorists dispersed to avoid further attacks on them and moved ammunition to hidden places to make it more difficult to strike them from the air, local sources said.
The attack comes two days after at least 10 Iranian-backed terrorists were eliminated in alleged Israeli strikes on Iranian weapon warehouses near the Iraq-Syria border.
In the past, Israel has warned that it can reach Iraq to prevent Iran from stockpiling ballistic missiles in the country.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last month that Iran has no immunity anywhere and that the IDF “will act — and currently are acting — against them.”
