According to Al-Masdar News sources, the transport aircraft made a flight from the Iranian capital to Khmeimim in order to avoid a possible Israeli air force strike at Damascus airport – the final destination of cargo arrived from Tehran (its nature is not specified).

As Al-Masdar News notes today, May 14, Israel does not hide the fact that it is following Iran’s every move in Syria and is ready to strike at the slightest suspicion of Tehran’s transfer of weapons and military equipment to Damascus, especially if it is strike systems.

As reported by EADaily, the head of the operations department of the General Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, General Aaron Khaliva, in an interview with the Walla news agency on April 29, said that Israel’s “secret operations” against Syria are continuing and they have become much more successful in achieving the main objective – the withdrawal of all Iranian forces from the Arab republics.

Three days earlier, on April 26, Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett warned that his military was ready to take “urgent action in Syria.” “We have moved from a policy of blocking Iran to its ousting from Syria,” the head of the military department said then.

Recall, starting in 2011, Israel launched hundreds of attacks on Syria, most of which were directed against Iranian-supported formations of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement. In recent months, Israeli aviation has stepped up attacks directly against the Iranian military presence in Syria, including in the Damascus area.
