IDF raises alert along Israel’s northern border due to expected attack by Iranian-linked terrorists
The IDF raised its state of alert along Israel’s northern border, in anticipation of an expected retaliatory attack by Iranian proxies.
Iranian-linked terrorists launched several rockets from Syria toward Israel overnight, but they fell short and failed to reach their targets, the IDF reported Monday morning.
According to the IDF, the rockets were fired from the Damascus area by pro-Iranian terrorists and Iran’s Quds Force.
Israeli fighter jets allegedly targeted overnight Sunday a missile depot belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group near al-Bukamal, on Syria’s border with Iraq.
According to Arab reports, the strikes targeted a base belonging to the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Force and Hezbollah.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says at least 21 pro-Iranian terrorists were killed in the airstrikes.
New satellite images show the destruction in the Iranian base in al-Bukamal.
Last week, the IDF deployed additional air defense systems, including Patriot batteries in northern Israel over concerns that Hezbollah terror group will continue to retaliate to Israeli strikes on Iranian-linked terror targets in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq.
