Syria: Alleged Israeli strikes on an Iranian base near the border with Iraq
Israeli fighter jets allegedly targeted a base belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group on Friday night in Syria.
Local residents reported several strikes near al-Bukamal on Syria’s border with Iraq, where Iran is reportedly building a large base for its terrorists.
An unidentified fighter jet bombed last week a military base belonging to Iranian-backed Shiite terrorists in the al-Anbar area of western Iraq.
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 the al-Bukamal area.
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.”
