Early on September 15, a number of loud explosions were reported at a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) base to the west of the Syrian capital Damascus.
The base, which belongs to the 137th Regiment of the army’s 7th Division, is located between the towns of Khan Alsheh and Zakyah, some 50 km away from Israel.
The explosions were reported by several Syrian sources a few hours only after a series of mysterious airstrikes that targeted the Syrian-Iraqi border line. The US-led coalition denied responsibility for the airstrikes which took place late on September 14. Three trucks and military equipment of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units were destroyed in the airstrikes.
The explosions heard at the SAA’s 137th Regiment base to the west of Damascus may have also been the result of airstrikes.
It is possible that Israel was behind the airstrikes on the Syrian-Iraqi border line as well as the explosions reported at the 137th Regiments near Damascus. The Israeli military carried out such attacks in the last few years.
Israel has been waging a covert military campaign known as the “War-Between-Wars” against Iran and its allies in the Middle East for years now. The campaign is meant to hinder Iranian entrenchment in Syria as well as to prevent the transfer of advanced weapons from Iran to Lebanon through Iraq and Syria.
