damascus/beirut - Israel has again bombed Iranian targets in Syria. This is reported by Syrian state media on Sunday. The attackers would have attacked the Syrian air base of Tiyas, 140 kilometers northeast of Damascus, from the Jordanian airspace with their fighter planes. An airplane would have been hit and the rest would have been chased away by the anti-aircraft, according to the Syrian sources.
At the air base of Tiyas, also called T4, Iranian soldiers were stationed who took part in the Syrian civil war and mainly fight against Sunni extremists. Israel sees the Iranians who support the Lebanese Shiite militias of Hezbollah as a major threat. Earlier Israeli attacks on Iranian positions or those of Hezbollah have been reported.
