The raid on the port of Latakia was aimed at blocking the Iranian sea route for smuggling.
This was reported by Yediot Aharonot.
< It is clarified that the attack was a signal for the regime of Bashar al-Assad. It targeted a shipment of Iranian weapons. It is possible that Iran smuggled it in without Assad's knowledge.
An article by columnist Ron Ben Ishai explained the reasons and circumstances of the raid, Iran's smuggling operations, as well as the reasons for dissatisfaction with Russia and the regime with the actions of the Islamic Republic.
“This raid marks the first Israeli attack on the port of Latakia, the main port in Syria, which is the backbone of the economic life of the Assad regime, as well as its 'sectarian incubator', & ndash; Yishai noted.
Meanwhile, the Israeli military expert noted that the Israeli raid was a message to the Assad regime that the Jewish State will not soften and will cause great damage to the port of Latakia, the economic and military pulse of Syria if the regime allows Iran continue to smuggle weapons and military equipment.
