The IDF stopped infiltrators trying to enter the country from Syria on Sunday.


Israeli soldiers foiled an attempted infiltration from Syria on Sunday, the Israeli Defense Forces announced on Sunday.

The two armed men had crossed the border line and were spotted by army surveillance approaching a second fence in the Golan Heights. Soldiers shot the infiltrators, killing one. The second escaped injured.

The IDF believes the two were sent by Hezbollah.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) frequently conducts airstrikes on Iranian military targets in Syria.

In May 2022, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that four Syrian soldiers killed in an airstrike.

Another seven soldiers were wounded, according to the SOHR.

“Israeli warplanes launched at least eight missiles on weapons depots and Iranian sites in the Masyaf area” in the central province of Hama, the SOHR reported.

The area has previously been targeted by Israel and a missile development and accuracy center is located in the area. Iran and the Hezbollah terror organization are working on converting Hezbollah’s arsenal of rockets into accurate missiles.

The IDF remained silent on the report in May, as it usually does after reported operations in Syria.

According to the SOHR’s count, this was the twelfth IAF strike in Syria since the beginning of 2022, which resulted in the destruction of multiple targets, including buildings, weapons and ammunition depots, and headquarters.

Iran routinely attempts to arm the Lebanon-based Hezbollah with advanced weapons. Israel has exposed and thwarted multiple attempts by Iran to transfer game-changing weapons to Hezbollah, including by air shipments from Iran, through Damascus Airport.

Over the years, the IAF has carried out thousands of attacks to thwart the Iranian entrenchment in the war-torn country and to prevent Hezbollah from accumulating advanced game-changing weapons.

According to the SOHR, the IAF conducted 29 strikes in Syria throughout 2021. The attacks hit 71 targets and killed 130 people, including 125 combatants from the Syrian military, Hezbollah and Iranian-backed Shiite militias.

The Damascus area was the most attacked in 2021, with 12 attacks out of the 29. The Damascus airport, which serves as an entry point for weapons coming from Iran on their way to Hezbollah in Lebanon, was one of the main targets.
