Israel says its forces attacked Iran’s military infrastructure in Syria today (Thursday) when they fired rockets at Israeli-held territory. Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the Iranian rockets either fell short of their targets, military bases in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, or were intercepted.
Earlier, Iran had vowed to retaliate after a suspected Israeli air strike last month in which its seven military personnel were killed at an air base.
Meanwhile, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov in an interview with Tass news agency has called the situation as “very alarming”.
French President Emmanuel Macron has also appealed for calm.
Meanwhile, military sources says overnight Israeli airstrikes killed three people, wounded two and destroyed a radar station, an ammunition warehouse, and damaged a number of air defense units.
On the other hand, Syrian President Bashar Assad in an interview with the Greek Kathimerini newspaper accused U.S. President of saying one thing one day and the opposite the next. He said "we cannot achieve anything with such an administration.”
