According to the reports, the warehouses, which were completely destroyed, stockpiled weaponry purchased by Iran from Africa and were intended to be smuggled to Hamas in Gaza.

Al-Watan further claimed that the jet flew through Egyptian airspace, where it was allowed passage.

Last January, Iranian Revolutionary Guard General Mohammed Allah Dadi was killed alongside Jihad Moughniyeh, Hezbollah commander and the son of the group’s late military leader Imad Moughniyeh, in an attack on a Hezbollah convoy near the Israeli Golan Heights border, which was attributed to Israel.

Israel has not officially confirmed it carried out either strike.
