Israel Bombards Iranian Targets in Syria

More than 50 sites hit, setting back Iran 'months'


Israel reportedly hit 50 Iranian sites in Syria Wednesday night after Iran launched a missile attack on the Israeli Golan Heights.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel had destroyed "nearly all" of Iran's military infrastructure in Syria and the IDF said Iran had been set back "many months."

According to the Times of Israel, Lieberman said:

“If we get rain, you will get a flood,” he warned Iran, speaking at the annual Herzliya Conference. “We will not let Iran use Syria as a base to attack us from.”

“The Iranians tried to attack the sovereign territory of Israel,” Liberman said. “Not one Iranian rocket landed in the State of Israel. Nobody was hurt. Nothing was damaged. And we’re to be thankful for that. We damaged nearly all of the Iranian infrastructure in Syria.”

This is a significant escalation in the simmering war between Israel and Iran. The Israeli attack in Syria may be the largest since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
