The Israeli Air Force pounded several different Syrian and Iranian troop sites on Wednesday morning. The attacks came after the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Tuesday that they had uncovered an Iranian-led operation to plant improvised explosive devices (IEDs) along the northern Israeli border. 

Israeli troops claimed the explosives were placed by a “Syrian squad led by Iranian forces.” 

The IDF said the incident is “further clear proof of the Iranian entrenchment in Syria.” Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz, who visited the northern border on Tuesday, said that Israel would not tolerate the planting of explosives in the Golan.

“We cannot turn a blind eye to this. It’s a grave incident,” Gantz announced.
