The air raid ascribed to Israel on Kiswah, south of Damascus Tuesday night, looks like a preventative strike designed to thwart Iran from firing rockets from Syria at northern Israel. Eight Iranians were reported to be among the 15 killed in the attack.
This would be the third report in 10 days about an urgent Israeli move to foil Iranian plans. For example, last week a major cache of Iranian missiles in Syria was bombed north of Hama.
Come Sunday evening, intelligence was leaked to the Israeli media that Iran was poised to make an imminent move.
