Tehran has also supported an array of militias shipped in from across the Middle East, according to the U.S. State Department's Country Reports on Terrorism 2016: "Iran has facilitated and coerced, through financial or residency enticements, primarily Shia fighters from Afghanistan and Pakistan to participate in the Assad regime's brutal crackdown in Syria".

Asked who were the "chief financial beneficiaries" of the sanctions evasion scheme, prosecutors said, "First and foremost, the scheme benefited the Iranian government entities whose access to oil revenue and to the United States financial system was restricted under the sanctions laws".

Israel's Channel 10 TV said the Iranian drone was launched from the T4 base and marked the first time Iran directly attacked Israel, rather than through Hezbollah.

The Assad regime moved its aircraft and some military equipment inside Russian bases for protection, but what about the Iranians?

Perhaps Israel took advantage of the chaos created by the chemical gas attack in Douma to strike the air base used by the Revolutionary Guards near Damascus. They seem to have been abandoned.
