In the past year, in dozens of strikes attributed to Israel, the Israeli Air Force has fired 586 munitions at targets in Syria, according to Hebrew-language media reports.

Amid the airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army fired 239 anti-aircraft missiles at Israeli jets and missiles, mostly without success, the reports say.

The new numbers were given by air force officials during a recent briefing with reporters.

As a rule, Israel’s military does not comment on specific strikes in Syria, but has admitted to conducting hundreds of sorties against Iran-backed groups attempting to gain a foothold in the country.
