What Did Israel Target In The Syrian Air Strikes?
Politics

During the first week of May, the Israeli Air Force launched two air strikes on Syria using Precision Guided Munitions, the first being on May 3rd and the second on May 5th. The question is, what exactly were these attacks targeting?

It has been revealed that the first air strike was launched on a convoy believed to be moving Fateh-110 missiles en route to the terrorist organization Hezbollah.

The second attack bombarded several ground targets near Damascus, including the Jamraya scientific research center.

Additionally, the second attack is said to have targeted the 4th Brigade of the Republican Guard’s barracks as well as a missile fuel storage depot.

The research center was identified as a target by breaking down the footage of the attack courtesy of Al-Manar TV’s cameras.

Whether the attack damaged the main building or its backup structure is unclear at this moment.

“It’s hard to understand what the facility was: just dead hens and collapsed walls can be seen in the photos published by the media outlets,” The Aviationist’s contributor and military expert Giuliano Ranieri explains.

The attacks both seem to have hit specific targets, and the second massive air strike is apparently well away from populated areas.

What the ramifications of these attacks will be are unclear as of now, but we are expecting to see more from both sides after Syrian officials considered this a declaration of war.
