The Israeli army has reportedly fired Rampage missiles against Syria for the first time.

On April 2nd, 2019, at 0230 hours, Israeli planes operating illegally from Lebanese airspace destroyed three hangars at a Syrian military base in Maysaf, Hama district, wounding three soldiers.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the missiles used would be the new high precision supersonic Rampage missiles. These projectiles with a range of 150 km and an accuracy of 10 m, are easy to detect but, given their speed, very difficult to intercept. They are co-produced by Israel Aerospace Industries and IMI Systems for a price three times lower than their competitors.

As usual, the Israeli press justified this attack by insisting it targeted an Iranian facility located on a Syrian base.
