Israel views the Iranian activities in the Syrian Golan Heights — which touched new heights with the deployment of 2 cells to place explosive devices on the Israeli ground of the border — as traversing a red line and served as the background for the judgment to react with comparatively broad airstrikes early Wednesday morning.
The Israeli strike, which came following Tuesday’s revelation of the second line of explosive devices in the southern Golan Heights in three-and-a-half months, rushed up the regional command headquarters of the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, the Damascus airport and additional spots associated to the Iranians.
Israeli intelligence agency recognised the Quds Force as liable for managing the cells, whose fragments are tenants of Syrian villages near the border. Members of the Revolutionary Guards begin the proceedings, supply the weapons and send off the cells, but the original mission is carried out by Syrian civilians, who are given money.
In August, the Israel Defense Forces shot four Syrians who had planted many related explosive devices in the same sphere. This point the area was cleansed a short period following the bombs were laid and the army response accompanied a few hours later. Some of the newest Israeli strikes were guided at the Quds Force.
The IDF spokesperson, Brigadier General Hidai Zilberman, verified that Israel had hit eight targets, including “arms bases, army headquarters and compounds and surface-to-air missile batteries.”
Beforehand on Wednesday, Syrian state TV station said Israeli missiles had crossed over the Syrian Golan Heights and led raids throughout Damascus. Live footage displayed explosions across the skies of the capital city.
State-run Syrian news agency SANA stated that Syrian air defences ambushed the Israeli attack above Damascus. Three army personnel were martyred and one was wounded in “Israeli attack” on Syria, SANA cited a Syrian military source as stating.
