Israel destroys a munitions warehouse on Friday morning; The facility is said to have belonged to the Iranian-backed Hezbollah; This marks Israel’s fifth strike on Iranian interests in less than two weeks and the second within twelve hours; Israel continues to go on the offensive regarding Iran.
In what was an extremely rare daytime strike on Friday morning, Israel destroyed a munitions warehouse near Homs, Syria. The facility is reported to have belonged to the Iranian-backed terror regime of Hezbollah. Several people were injured in the attack as it caused a chain of explosions due to weaponry inside the building.
This comes less than twelve hours after the Israeli military bombed several Iranian targets on the Golan Heights where Israel and Syria share a border. It is also the fifth Israeli strike on Iranian interests in the last two weeks.
In an attempt to deny Israel’s responsibility for today’s attack, Damascus claimed that the explosion – which could be seen and heard by many – was a result of human error. What makes this particular strike even more unique is that it happened during the daytime, something Israel has seldom done.
Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett warned earlier in the week that Israel would no longer just act defensively in regards to Iran, but that they’re going on the offensive, stating, “We have moved from blocking Iran’s entrenchment in Syria to forcing it out of there, and we will not stop. We will not allow more strategic threats to grow just across our borders without taking action. We will continue to take the fight to the enemy’s territory.”
