Days after Israel's air strikes on the Masyaf (Misyaf) missile plant in Hama Province, Syria, Israeli media have reported that a highly advanced "new missile" was deployed during the attacks.


According to the reports, the missiles are supersonic and “so advanced” that they can evade Russian-made long-range surface-to-air missile systems.

The air strikes were purportedly part of a series of Israeli attacks against Iran's military positions in Syria. Three days after the attack, Israeli satellite imaging company ImageSat published images depicting substantial damage to the missile plant.

The Syrian Army confirmed on April 13 that Israel had attacked the missile plant, damaging the site, leaving two people dead and 15 injured. Syrian opposition sources maintained that an unknown number of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) forces were killed in the attacks.

Earlier, the London-based Syrian Human Rights Watch had also reported that several people "associated with the IRGC" were killed during the strikes.

Neither Syria nor Iran has so far responded to the claims.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, implicitly confirmed that his country was involved in the air strikes against Masyaf. Celebrating his Likud party’s victory in recent national elections on the eve of Passover, he said, "Whenever a threat is recognized, we immediately attack it, as we did in recent days in the north (Syria)."

Israel maintains that Iran's military presence in Syria is a threat to its existence and has repeatedly insisted it would "address it at any price."

Israeli authorities have also made repeated claims in recent years that their forces have attacked Iranian targets based in Syria.

The new Israeli missile has been dubbed The Rampage after a popular video game. Developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Elbit, the missile is a supersonic, long-range, accurate air-to-ground assault missile with an advanced navigation suit that allows for precision targeting, the Jerusalem Post reported.
