Overnight on Wednesday, the IDF struck targets in southern Syria via missiles fired from the Golan Heights. The attack reportedly took place after midnight and targeted Iranian-backed interests in the area. According to at least one initial report, the attack resulted in the death of one Syrian fighter and other structural damage.
As is typical of the Syrian State media, it claimed that most of the incoming missiles were downed before impact, a claim that has been disproven more than a few times.
The timing of the attack is interesting, as it took place after reports surfaced that an Iranian cargo plane landed in Syria earlier in the day. The attack hit near As-Suwayda and in close proximity to Damascus International Airport, both located in the southern region of the country. Israel has not commented on the event(s).
