As the mainstream media focuses on President Trump’s latest Tweet, his administration continues to support a close ally that appears to be pushing for yet another war. Israel has reportedly attacked an Iranian military base in Syria.

According to a report from Ynet News, the attack was reported by Arab media outlets on Saturday. They claimed that Israeli fighter jets launched air-to-surface missiles from Lebanese airspace, targeting a town near Damascus. Syrian sources claimed the attack caused power outages and explosions before Syria’s air defense system thwarted three of the five missiles.

The existence of the military base was apparently revealed less than one month ago by a BBC report, which included satellite images of several buildings—some new and some renovated. However, it was not confirmed as to whether the buildings were being used by the Iranian military.

As reported, while the Israeli reports claimed “the strikes targeted the ‘Iranian base’ south of Damascus,” the military facility they are referencing “has never been confirmed by anybody as actually belonging to Iran, but Israeli outlets played that narrative up as part of the ‘Iranian threat.’”

Videos have since emerged on social media purporting to show the moment one of the Israeli missiles was intercepted by Syrian Air Defense.

Israel’s hostility towards Iran is nothing new, and as an analysis from Haaretz noted, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been building a campaign against the nation for a while. In August, Netanyahu even reportedly said, “Wherever ISIS exits, Iran enters.”
