(Israel Hayom/JNS) The Israel Defense Forces recently revealed new information about the deployment of Iranian air defenses in Syria, further exposing Tehran’s attempts to entrench itself militarily in the war-torn country.
Tensions between Israel and Iran have been steadily escalating since an Iranian drone that breached Israeli airspace on Feb. 10 was shot down by the Israeli Air Force.
An Israeli official confirmed to The New York Times earlier this week that it was the IAF that struck the T4 air base in Homs last week. Seven members of Iran’s elite Quds Force were killed in the strike, including the commander of its drone unit in Syria.
Israeli officials said the drone, which the IDF found had been weaponized and on an offensive mission, was launched from T4.
Iran has vowed to exact vengeance on Israel.
