Satellite images show damage at Iranian weapons depots after Israeli strikes in Syria
ImageSat released satellite images of Iranian weapons depots destroyed in Syria, which correspond with the location of the Israeli airstrikes reported on Saturday.
Israeli fighter jets allegedly targeted three Iranian positions near the city of Masyaf in the province of Hama on Saturday night.
“We are continuing to act on all fronts, including the northern one,” PM Netanyahu said today at an event in Jerusalem. “Strength is the guarantee of our existence and is the crucial and basic condition for achieving peace with our neighbors,” he added.
Syria’s official state news agency said Israeli jets fired missiles while flying from Lebanese airspace, destroying several Iranian and Hezbollah weapons depots. Syrian air defenses intercepted and downed some of the rockets, Syrian state television said.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Israeli airstrikes hit three targets, wounding 17 ‘Syrian troops’. It said there were also deaths, but it was not immediately clear how many were killed and whether they were Iranians or Iran-sponsored terrorists.
Since the civil war started, Israel has carried out scores of strikes in Syria against arms transfers and deployments by Iranian terrorists and their Lebanese Hezbollah terror group allies which are backing Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
The Israeli Air Force has struck security and military infrastructure in Masyaf in the past.
The United States designated Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards as a foreign terrorist organization, President Donald Trump said on Monday, marking the first time Washington has formally named a branch of the armed forces of a foreign government as a terror group.
