IDF Attacked Secret Iranian Weapon Factories in Syria - Report
The alleged attack by the Israeli Air Force in Aleppo, Syria at the beginning of May targeted sites belonging to a secret Iranian unit operating in Syria, according to media reports in Saudi Arabia on Monday evening, June 5.
The sites were used by the Iranian Unit 18340, which operates in Syria secretly, as weapons factories to produce precision missiles, as per the reports.
In Unit 18340, Iranian and Syrian officers work together under the command of the Iranian Jawad Soleimani. The unit also assists the "Syrian Corps" within the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Force to produce, supply, and test new weapons.
In the attacks in May, one Syrian soldier was killed and seven other individuals were injured in airstrikes targeting the Aleppo International Airport and other sites nearby, according to Syrian state media. The strike came a day before a planned visit to Syria by the president of Iran.
The Aleppo International Airport was temporarily closed due to the damage caused by the airstrikes. Footage reportedly from the area showed that a fire broke out at the scene. According to Lebanese media, the airstrikes also targeted sites near as-Safirah. (JPost / VFI News)
