Why did Israel invade Syria?
Iran-backed militias maintain their stronghold in Syria. Israel says its troops receive large amounts of money and weapons from Iran. On the basis of which they are plotting to attack Israel. In such a situation, he is forced to annihilate the enemies for his safety.
There has also been a war between the two countries
Israel has carried out air strikes on Syria several times in the past. The two countries also fought the Six-Day Arab–Israeli War in 1967, in which six Arab countries, including Syria, jointly attacked Israel. But the Israeli army took away the lands near the borders of all the enemy countries. Since then no Arab country has dared to attack Israel directly.
