5 March, 2020   |   4 weeks ago

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) attacked targets at several locations inside Syria on Wednesday night, Syria state media reported.

The official SANA news agency reported that the Syrian army’s air defenses “confronted hostile targets in the central regions.”

A military source said that its air defenses “observed an Israeli warplane movement” which launched its attack from Lebanese airspaces.

The source claimed that the air defenses “confronted the hostile missiles successfully and professionally” and downed all of them.

Syrian opposition sources said that Syrian regime bases were attacked in the Homs area, including the a-Dabba military airport. Other reports say that Hezbollah targets were hit in the strike.

There was no available information on casualties or damage.

Other reports said that the IAF pounded targets in the town of Khader in the Quneitra area adjacent to Israel’s border with Syria.

Israel has previously bombed Hezbollah and Iranian infrastructure under construction in the area.

The IDF in March 2019 announced that it had exposed a clandestine Hezbollah unit that was operating in southern Syria in the area near the border with Israel and where this latest attack occurred.

The unit’s objective is to establish another front against Israel from the Golan Heights, in addition to Hezbollah’s threat from Lebanon.

The IDF remained silent on the reports, as it has done previously.

However, Israel placed a ban on Thursday morning on all civilian flights over the Golan Heights flying over 5,000 feet high for the next three days.

In general, Iran’s military build-up in Syria remains a red line for Israel. The IAF has carried out thousands of attacks to thwart the Iranian entrenchment in the war-torn country.

Iran uses its positions in Syria to transfer weapons and infrastructure to its terror proxy in Lebanon, Hezbollah, while attempting to establish another military front against Israel from the Syrian Golan Heights.

Israeli has repeatedly warned it will not tolerate such a threat on its northern border.
