The Israeli armed forces launched a missile attack on Syria. The press service of the Israeli army reported.

The military attacked Iranian facilities located South-East of Damascus. They assume that in the area of attack there were people, the blow could lead to victims among the staff of the Iranian forces.

The press service explained that the Iranians planned to attack the territory in the North of Israel with drones. The Israeli army launched a pre-emptive strike on infrastructure to thwart the planned attack.

Israel has repeatedly attacked Syrian territory. As a rule, his goal was the Iranian units of “al-Quds,” which are involved in military operations on the side of government troops. The Jewish state intends to oppose Iran’s military presence in Syria because of Tehran’s cooperation with the Islamist movement Hezbollah, which is hostile to Israel.
