Israel bombs Iranian aircraft in Syria
The Israeli missile strike on the Damascus international airport reportedly targeted an Iranian plane delivering weapons for pro-Assad forces and Revolutionary Guards units fighting in the country’s civil war.
Israel's Channel 2 reported that Israeli jets also hit weapon stores at the airport hangars.
The last reported Israeli strikes on Syria took place on September 4, when Syrian state media said the military's air defences downed several missiles in the coastal province of Tartus and in central Hama.
Those raids reportedly killed three Syrian soldiers.

They were bolstered by nearly three years of air strikes by their key ally Russia and Iranian, Iraqi, Lebanese, and other foreign fighters on the ground.
