According to Western intelligence services, Israel’s airstrike on the Scientific Studies and Research Center in the Syrian town of Masyaf, Saturday, may have killed more than just Iranian and Syrian military officers.

Israeli fighter jets reportedly struck Iranian targets in Syria near Aleppo. What does this mean for the tensions as the U.S. President Donald Trump declared the Golan Heights under Israeli sovereignty.
