Israel attacked Syrian targets near Hama on Saturday, killing two Iranians and destroying several buildings, Syrian media and foreign accounts reported.
The outlets said the Israel Air Force carried out the assault from Lebanese airspace. The jets reportedly targeted an Iranian-controlled military base, which has been attacked several times. Social media posts recorded multiple missiles being fired at the base.
It was also reported in Lebanon that an unmanned Israeli aircraft was flying at low altitude over Dahieh near southern Beirut in the morning. Israel has yet to respond to the reports.
Last week, US President Donald Trump said he would designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps as a terrorist group and impose sanctions on the organization. The day before, Guards commander Mohammad Ali Jafari threatened that if the United States goes through with the designation, the IRGC will not be quiet in western Asia.
Also two weeks ago, an ISI intelligence report was published containing up-to-date pictures of structures that were apparently attacked.
Al-Marsad Center for Human Rights in London reported at the end of March that at least seven Iranian soldiers were killed in an attack attributed to Israel, which took place in the Sheikh Najjar industrial zone in the suburbs of Aleppo. Iraqi mercenaries belonging to pro-Iranian militias were reportedly wounded in the offensive.
