Israel launched an airstrike on the Syrian capital Damascus shortly after midnight on Sunday.
According to AFP, who cited a war monitor, more than a dozen people were killed and several others were injured. A residential building was targeted in central Damascus’ Kafr Sousa neighborhood, which is a heavily guarded complex close to Iranian installations. This is the first time when Israel targeted Syria after the recent devastating earthquake. Israel has, however, not commented on the airstrikes yet.
So what was or lets who was Israel targeting in the latest airstrikes?
Israeli airstrikes on Syria have become commonplace. However, these air strikes were different in that they seemed to be directly targeting Iranian elites that live in Damascus. Israel is sending a message to the Ayatollahs that no one is immune – no matter where they are.
