The Israeli media says that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) also scrambled warplanes during the morning incident. However, no reports about Israeli airstrikes in Syria on July 23 have appeared so far.
It’s highly likely that the IAF will use this incident to carry out more strikes in Syria.
On July 22, the IAF conducted an airstrike on a Syrian military position in the town of Masyaf in the western Hama countryside. MORE ABOUT THIS HERE
