One of the images shows the destruction at the Shairat air base in the Homs region as a result of an air strike on March 31. According to the images, an air raid destroyed the navigation equipment and left the craters after shelling at the air base. According to the company, all of this has since been repaired, and the base resumed work two weeks after the strike.

It is unknown whether combat aircraft were destroyed during this attack. According to military experts, the Israeli armed forces attacked Syria’s air base, which housed at least six MiG-29s, to prevent its use by the Syrian Air Force, since these fighters can pose a serious threat to Israeli F-16s.

Another series of images reportedly shows destruction from airstrikes in the area of ​​Al-Sukhah east of Homs, Syria. An air strike allegedly leveled half of the warehouse along the road to Palmyra. ImageSat claimed the building was used to store rockets or other modern weapons.

The intelligence firm also published satellite imagery, allegedly depicting the effects of an air raid on Al Mazze military airport near Damascus. The photographs show traces of shelling that appeared at the alleged entrance to the underground part of the object.

Syrian media outlets attributed many of these air strikes to the Israeli air force. Tel Aviv did not comment on these statements, only vaguely hinting that he might be behind the attacks. In the past, Israel recognized responsibility for some of these attacks. He claimed that they were directed against Iran or its representatives, allegedly stationed in Syria.

After recent attacks, Defense Secretary Naftali Bennett in veiled form hinted that Tel Aviv was behind the April protests. According to him, Israel has moved from blocking the Iranian strengthening in Syria to ousting it from there. Bennett says they will continue to fight in enemy territory.
