“Iran launched 32 missiles and we intercepted four of them and the rest fell outside Israeli territory,” Norkin said at the IAF senior Air Force Conference in Herzilya on Tuesday.
The IDF had said earlier that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’s Quds Force had launched 20 Fajr-5 and Grad missiles toward Israel’s front defensive line in the Golan Heights.
According to Norkin, The Syrians fired over 100 anti-aircraft missiles at Israeli jets, and in response Israel destroyed their anti-aircraft batteries.
Israel also struck 50, mainly Iranian, targets in Syria.
According to Norkin, Israel has been “managing a campaign against Iranian forces, especially on Israel’s northern border” for the past two years.
