On Sunday night, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) hit Iranian bases inside of Syria with airstrikes. Syrian air defense units have claimed to have shot down one of the missiles launched from Israeli aircraft outside of Aqraba. No casualty figures have been released.

Both media and civilians have also reported that explosions could be heard outside of Homs, where an Iranian base is located. Explosions could also be heard in Damascus.

The Syrians have accused the Israelis of using Lebanon’s airspace when conducting airstrikes in Syria. Witnesses on the ground in Lebanon have reported hearing Israeli aircraft flying overhead during the attack.

The Israeli news site Ynet, citing a report from the Al-Akhbar newspaper in Lebanon, reported that the Israeli airstrike targeted arms warehouses in the suburb of Sayyidah Zaynab south of Damascus.
