Israeli video shows missile blowing up Iranian rocket launcher in Syria

Published: Updated:

Israel Defense Army released a video, showing an Israeli missile destroying an Iranian rocket launcher surrounded by soldiers, during the attack staged by Tel Aviv on Iranian targets inside Syria early Thursday.

Israel said the attack comes in retaliation to a rocket attack by Iran on the Golan Heights earlier.

Despite parts of the video showed casualties, Tehran did not confirm any losses among its soldiers in Syria, while the Syrian regime did not release much in this regard.

The video which is 20 seconds in length, shows an Israeli missile destroying an SA22 aerial interception system.

It is worth mentioning that the Iranian rocket launcher is Russian made and also known by the name “Pantsir-S1” with capabilities to carry and launch surface-to-air short and medium range missiles and carry aerial interception system.

The military escalation between Israel and Iran comes two days after US President Donald Trump pulled out his country from the Iran nuclear deal which was signed in 2015.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran had "crossed a red line" by attacking Israeli targets in the Golan Heights which Tel Aviv had occupied a huge part during the 1967 war.
