Israel ataca “decenas” de blancos iraníes en Siria
May 10, 2018 -- El ejército israelí dijo que alcanzó “decenas” de blancos iraníes en la vecina Siria en respuesta a un torrente de cohetes iraníes sobre posiciones israelíes en la Meseta del Golán, en la confrontación militar más grave a la fecha entre los dos acerbos enemigos.
Israel said the targets included weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centres used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. It also said it destroyed several Syrian air-defence systems after coming under heavy fire and that none of its warplanes was hit.
Israel has acknowledged carrying out over 100 airstrikes in Syria since the civil war erupted in 2011, most believed to be aimed at suspected Iranian weapons shipments bound for the Hezbollah militant group.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which closely monitors the civil war through sources inside Syria, said the overnight Israeli attacks struck several military posts for Syrian troops and Iranian-backed militias near the capital, Damascus, in central Syria and in southern Syria. The Observatory said the attacks killed 23 fighters, including five Syrian soldiers. It said it was not immediately clear if Iranians were among those killed.
