Some 28 Israeli aircraft fired around 60 air-to-surface rockets in a massive overnight strike in Syria, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman claimed on Thursday that Israeli forces destroyed almost all of Iran’s military infrastructure in Syria. It is the first time since 1974 that there have been clashes over the Israeli-occupied Syrian territory as regional tensions increased following the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
