Israel claims responsibility for airstrikes near Damascus, saying it foiled 'large-scale attack' by Iran

By Pooya Stone

The Israeli military Saturday said it foiled an imminent large-scale attack by Iranian forces and Shiite militia on targets in northern Israel, with a series of airstrikes on Iranian targets near the Syrian capital Damascus.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claimed responsibility for the airstrikes, saying it was necessary to thwart multiple attacks by what it called killer, or kamikaze, drones, of a kind not previously used by Iranian forces against Israel.

Unlike more standard attack drones, which fire missiles towards their targets, the killer drone acts as its own missile by flying into the target itself, CNN reported.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in acknowledging Israel’s responsibility for the attacks, said on Twitter, “I repeat: Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every direction against Iranian aggression.”

“He who rises to kill you, kill him first,” Netanyahu said in his tweet.
