Since at least 2012, Shi‘ite Muslim Iran has provided critical military support to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, helping his army regain swathes of the country from rebels and Sunni militants.

The Iran-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah has played a major role in support of Assad.

Israel says it has hit arms convoys of the Syrian military and Hezbollah nearly 100 times in the past five years.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Iran is strengthening its foothold in Syria, and Israel was watching developments and would act against any threat.
