حدة التوتر بين طهران وتل أبيب تتصاعد في سوريا

May 9, 2018 -- Damascus accused Tel Aviv of launching missiles at a target near Damascus hours after U.S. President Donald Trump announced he was quitting the Iran nuclear deal, a move that prompted Israel to go on high alert.

The Israeli military said that, upon identifying “irregular activity” by Iranian forces in Syria, it instructed civic authorities on the Golan Heights to ready bomb shelters, deploy new defences and mobilise some reservist forces.

Within two hours of the White House announcement, Syrian state news agency SANA reported explosions in a military base in Kisweh without causing casualties.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the missiles had targeted a weapons depot, “presumably belonging to Hezbollah and the Iranians.”

In recent years, particularly since 2017, Israel has carried out numerous strikes in Syria against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad and his ally, the Lebanese Hezbollah militia.

On April 9, missiles targeted the T-4 air base in the central province of Homs, killing up to 14 fighters, including seven Iranians.

On April 29, at least 26 mostly Iranian fighters were killed by missiles fired on regime military positions, according to the Observatory.

Israeli officials have confirmed the Jewish state has carried out dozens of attacks in recent years on convoys of Iranian weapons being sent through Syria to Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy militia in Lebanon.
