For the second time this month, Israeli warplanes struck an allegedly Iranian base located near the key Syrian city of al-Bukamal on the border with Iraq.

A Syrian source told al-Mayadeen that the airstrikes, which took place on September 17, targeted positions near the al-Bukamal border crossing.

“An attack, that was carried out an hour ago, targeted positions at the Iraqi-Syrian border near al-Qa’im and al-Bukamal, there were no victims [as a result],” the Lebanese channel quoted the source as saying.

The source didn’t reveal the exact location of the targeted positions. However, the Iranian-backed Fatemiyoun Brigade released several photos confirming that the al-Bukamal base was the target.

The same base was targeted by Israeli warplanes on September 9. FOX News reported that the base is going to be used by Iranian forces as a missile site.

These repeated Israeli airstrikes on Iranian positions near al-Bukamal could be aimed at hindering the reopening of the strategic border crossing between Iraq and Syria.
