There is a "scientific" center in the area, that is suspectedly develops precise missiles and chemical weapons. It was attacked several times since #Israel starts its not-so-shadow war against #Iran in #Syria pic.twitter.com/IYxAh1EahF— Guy Elster (@guyelster) June 4, 2020

The incident was not commented on by Tel Aviv, as has happened repeatedly throughout the year following missile strikes considered by Syrian media as the Israeli military targeting Iranian military assets alleged to be in the country. Damascus has denounced the Israeli attacks, insisting that they violate the country's sovereignty.
