The Israeli Air Force carried out a horrific airstrike on the Syrian port of Latakia. It is claimed that weapons and explosives coming into Syria were targeted in this attack. After this attack, there were loud explosions in the port and huge flames were seen rising. The fire could not be brought under control for about 10 hours. Latakia is the same place where Russian troops are present and has deployed its most state-of-the-art S-400 air defense system.
Various questions are being asked in social media on the failure of Russian Air Defense S-400 to stop these Israeli attacks. It is being told that in this attack the container terminal was targeted at 3:21 am. Israel has not officially acknowledged this attack, but many sources said that the attack was carried out by the Israeli Air Force. These planes attacked with missiles and lethal bombs. Syria has suffered heavy losses in the latest Israeli attack.
Syria and Israel continue to attack each other
This is Israel’s second attack on Latakia this month. Israel is believed to have attacked a Syrian port to destroy Iranian weapons. Israel suspects that Iran was sending these weapons to Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed forces operating in Syria and Lebanon. The Israeli Air Force began targeting Latakia only this month. Earlier on December 7, the Syrian army said Israeli fighter jets had fired missiles at the port of the coastal city of Latakia.
Syrian state media quoted a military official as saying that missiles hit the port where several containers were kept, with the attack setting several containers on fire. Latakia is a very important port for import. There are frequent attacks on each other between Syria and Israel. Some time ago it was costly for Syria to fire missiles at Israel’s nuclear reactor. This missile had landed in the Negev desert of Israel. In this area is the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center, where Israel made its first atomic bomb.
