An Israeli newspaper explaining the causes and objectives of the recent strike on Damascus

The Israeli newspaper “Yediot Aharonot” said that the recent attacks carried out by the Israeli air forces against Syrian sites near Damascus, targeted defensive shipments that arrived from Iran to the Syrian capital recently.

On Tuesday, the Israeli newspaper quoted the Israeli journalist and expert in military affairs, Ron Bin Yishai, that the attacks that took place last night, near Damascus International Airport, targeted air defense systems that were shipped to Syria on Iranian cargo planes during the past days.

He added that the shipments mostly included precision missile equipment and devices to improve the accuracy of the missiles owned by the Lebanese “Hezbollah” in Syria and Lebanon.

According to “Yediot Aharonot” newspaper, an Iranian Boeing 747 cargo plane, working for the Iranian “Revolutionary Guard”, took off on Monday from Tehran to Damascus, landed in Damascus International Airport for 7 hours, then returned to Tehran again.

The Israeli military expert, Ron Bin Yishai, spoke in a press report published by the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper on Tuesday, that the Israeli attacks coincided with the signing by Damascus and Iran of a comprehensive military cooperation agreement, two weeks ago, stipulating that Iran provide the Syrian army with air defense systems to improve its ability to confront for repeated Israeli strikes, according to the agreement.
