Israel Launches Massive Airstrikes on Syria, Targeting Iranian Forces

HeadlineMay 10, 2018

Israel has bombed dozens of Iranian targets inside Syria in the largest attack by Israel since fighting began in Syria in 2011. The bombing raid came a day after Israel accused Iranian forces in Syria of firing 20 rockets at Israeli forces in the occupied Golan Heights. Israel’s military said it hit all of Iran’s infrastructure inside of Syria overnight, including a munitions storage site at Damascus International Airport and logistics headquarters of the Iranian Quds forces. The bombings lit up the night sky and rattled windows across Syria’s capital city. Monitoring groups say the strikes killed 23 fighters, including many Iranians and five Syrian soldiers.
