Israel disputes success of Iran missile strike

 

BEIRUT—Israel's military Chief of Staff is disputing Iranian claims of successfully launching missiles at militants in Syria.

 

Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot said Tuesday the "operational achievement was much smaller" than what has been reported.

 

Speaking at an annual security and policy conference in Herzliya, he said they obtained "far from precise hits." He added the rare missile strike expressed Iran's aspirations in the region.
