On November 19, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) shared satellite images showing the aftermath of the recent strikes on Syria.
The strikes, which took place early on November 18, targeted a number of Syrian and alleged Iranian military positions in Syria’s central and southern region. Footage showing some of the strikes was released.
The IDF’s images confirm that a military complex allegedly used by the Iranian Quds Force and the headquarters of the Syrian Arab Army 7th Division were completely wiped out as a result of the strikes.

A satellite image shared by activists also revealed that the so-called Glass House near Damascus International Airport was struck. Israel claims that the building is the headquarters of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Syria.

Israel said the strikes on Syria were a response to an attempt by “an Iranian-led Syrian squad” to plant three improvised explosive devices (IED) along the Israel-Syria separation line in the occupied Golan Heights.
On November 19, the IDF claimed that the Quds Force Unit 840 was behind the last attempt, as well as previous failed attacks with IEDs in Golan.
The Israeli strikes were more of a message then a response. They were carried out hours before U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his Bahraini counterpart, Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani, landed in Tel-Aviv to hold the trilateral meeting.
Tel Aviv is trying to push Iranian forces out of Syria using political, economic and military means. So far, this strategy has been nothing but a complete failure.
