Israeli security experts believe that Iran is using the influx of earthquake aid to transport weapons to its proxies in Syria.

Israel allegedly targeted Iranian-linked sites in the first such attack since the devastating earthquake.

Israel is determined to prevent Iran from building up weaponry on its border and security experts believe that the regime is taking advantage of the post-earthquake humanitarian aid to smuggle weapons into Syria.

Additionally, the strike may be retaliation for a recent strike on an Israeli-owned ship that was targeted in the Arabian Sea.
