Israel reportedly attacks Iranian arms shipment in Syria
Video footage shared on social media captured the sound of explosions echoing throughout the area near Damascus.
The Israeli Air Force reportedly launched an operation Sunday to target an Iranian arms shipment located west of Damascus in Syria, according to Syrian opposition news organizations.
There were no immediate reports of casualties, and the amount of damage caused by these strikes remains uncertain. This incident reportedly triggered the activation of Syrian air defense systems.
Video footage shared on social media captured the sound of explosions echoing throughout the area, although it remains unconfirmed whether these were the result of the airstrikes or if they were caused by Syrian counter-fire.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has traditionally refrained from making public statements regarding military operations conducted in Syria. However, they have openly acknowledged their involvement in numerous attacks against Iran-backed proxy-groups striving to establish a presence in the region.
The IDF states that these operations are primarily aimed at preventing arms shipments from reaching these groups, with a particular focus on Lebanon’s Hezbollah terrorist organization.
Israel has frequently leveled allegations against the regime of Bashar al-Assad, claiming that it actively supports Tehran’s activities in the country..
