Israeli intelligence firm ImageSat International (ISI), has released the satellite images showing the aftermath in Syrian Masyaf region, Hama governorate, after the recent Israeli strikes on December 25.
The satellite images show surface-to-surface missiles (SSM) engines, warheads assembly and production facilities.
Earlier, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) claimed that the strikes hit positions held by Iran-backed militias in the Masyaf district: a research center, where surface-to-surface missiles are developed and stored. There were also reports that the al-Talae’ training camp in Sheikh Ghadban area in the same Masyaf countryside was targeted.
SOHR reported killing of at least six alleged Iranian-backed paramilitaries. This claim is yet to be verified.
The Syrian Ministry of Defense issued a statement saying that Syrian air defenses systems “confronted the enemy missiles and intercepted most of them”. However, the photos published by ISI unveiled that some of the missiles had reached the main targets.
