Is­rael: Strike in Syria stopped at­tack by Iran

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

The Is­raeli mil­i­tary at­tacked tar­gets near Da­m­as­cus late Satur­day in what it said was a suc­cess­ful ef­fort to thwart an im­mi­nent Ira­nian drone strike on Is­rael, step­ping up an al­ready height­ened cam­paign against Ira­nian mil­i­tary ac­tiv­ity.

The late-night airstrike, which trig­gered Syr­ian anti-air­craft fire, ap­peared to be one of the most in­tense at­tacks by Is­raeli forces in sev­eral years of hits on Ira­nian tar­gets in Syria.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Con­ri­cus said Iran’s Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guards’ Al Quds force, work­ing with al­lied Shi­ite mili­tias, planned to send ex­plo­sives-laden at­tack drones into Is­rael.
