Israel Attacks Iranian Base in Syria

Israel Attacks Iranian Base in Syria

Syrian air defences intercepted at least two Israeli missiles fired at a government "military position" in Damascus province early Saturday but the attack still caused damage, state media reported.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard and the Iranian authorities are yet to comment on the reports.

The newspaper Arab Today, directly quoting Iranian media, declared the names of the dozen members of the Iranian forces that were said to have been killed in the Israeli attack on the base near the Syrian capital of Damascus.

The Israeli military has not confirmed if it carried out the strike.

The source added that an Israeli fighter jet was flying at a low altitude over Lebanon's Baalbek region near Syria's border when the Syrian missiles were launched.

Their seizure threats stem from prosecutors seeking money Shkreli owes after being convicted of defrauding investors. Shkreli, who disputed the charges, signaled through his attorney he would also oppose the forfeiture request.

Israel has grown deeply alarmed by Iran's expanding clout during the conflict, and has warned it would act against any threat from its regional foe Tehran.

The video was recorded Thursday, before the alleged strike, and is set to air in full on Sunday at the Brookings Institution's annual Saban Forum in Washington, DC.

"We will not allow that regime to entrench itself militarily in Syria, as it seeks to do, for the expressed goal of eradicating our state", Netanyahu said.

Aljazeera reports that the Israeli raid was targeted at government military sites and Hezbollah positions and that the sound of large explosions caused by the raid was heard in the capital and surrounding areas. The British broadcaster commissioned a series of satellite pictures that showed widespread construction at the site.
