Israel has been increasing attacks in Syria over the past few months to prevent Iranian deliveries of weapons to the country, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said Thursday, Walla reported.
“In the first quarter of 2023, we doubled the number of attacks in Syria,” he was quoted as saying. “We are systematically harming Iranian abilities and assets in the area. We will not allow Iran to set up a Syrian army that will turn the Golan Heights into Lebanon.”
Since the large-scale earthquakes struck Turkey and Syria, Iran has been sending weapons to Syria disguised as humanitarian aid, according to reports.
Hezbollah was behind Megiddo bombing
Hezbollah was behind the Megiddo terrorist attack, Army Radio reported Thursday, citing the Israeli defense establishment’s assessments.
The terrorists behind the attack crossed over the border from Lebanon and went undetected until they set off an improvised explosive device near Megiddo junction last month.
