Israel says it bombed Iranian, Syrian targets inside Syria | Israel News
Military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Avichay Adraee said on Wednesday Israeli fighter jets hit multiple targets belonging to the elite Quds Force – the overseas arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) – and the Syrian army, including surface-to-air missiles, weapons warehouses and military bases.
Israel’s military said its missile defence system had shot down four rockets fired from Syria towards Israel on Tuesday.
Syria’s state news agency SANA quoted a military source as saying that the country’s air defences were able to destroy most of the missiles fired over the capital, Damascus, before they reached their targets.
SANA said three people were wounded as a result of the Israeli counterattack.
Israel says it has carried out hundreds of raids in Syria against Iranian targets trying to establish a permanent military presence there and against advanced weapon shipments to the Tehran-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah.
