Israel does not recognize attack on Syria
Israel has carried out hundreds of attacks on targets inside Syria controlled by the government over the years, but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations. But it has recognized that it is targeting the bases of Iran’s allied militias, such as the Lebanese Hezbollah group that has fighters deployed in Syria.
Israel says it is targeting arms shipments believed to be destined for militias as Hezbollah is fighting on the side of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces in a decade-long civil war.
Regarding it, Israel says Iranian presence on its northern border is a red line, which justifies their attacks on facilities and weapons inside Syria. Filed Under: Israeli airstrike leaves deadly balance.
