Quneitra - SMART

On Sunday night, the Israeli Army shelled bases of the Iranian militias and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia that support the Syrian government forces in northern Quneitra, Southern Syria.

An exclusive source reported to SMART that the Israeli Army shelled the bases of an Iranian militia and the Hezbollah militia using artillery shells near the Israeli frontier fence southwest of the Hader town in the Golan Heights (25 kilometers north of Quneitra), without further details.

On Mar. 5, 2020, the Israeli Army shelled military bases of the Syrian government forces and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia in Quneitra, Southern Syria.

On July 12, 2019, the Israeli Army shelled bases of the Syrian government forces in the cities of al-Sanamayn and Tal al-Harra in Daraa, and in the city of Baath in Quneitra. The Israeli Army also shelled bases of the Syrian government forces in the town of Khan Arnabeh and the village of Tal al-Shaar.

On May 18, 2019, Israeli aircraft bombed weapons depots of the Syrian government forces in the vicinity of Damascus International Airport and other depots in the Tal Kawkab area, in addition to the 1st Armored Division that includes Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps' sites near the city of al-Kiswah. The Israeli bombings also targeted a logistical supply site of the Lebanese Hezbollah militia in the al-Dimas area.

Israel has targeted Syrian government forces bases and Iranian convoys and bases in Syria. On Jan. 15, 2019, Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, said, "I'm telling you, get out of there fast. We won’t stop attacking," in reference to Iran.
