Al-Hafa base explosion
- Iranian military experts, Hezbollah members killed in Sanaa explosion: report - The New Arab, August 8, 2022
- Noted: the article provides a link for the 'Iranian experts,' which is a year old article on a Hadi government spokesman alleging that a Saudi air strike had killed Iranian officials and officers. Currently, it is not clear that there is any evidence that Iranian 'experts' were present and died at Al-Hafa. The claims made about the incident by Saudi media, which were picked up and repeated by other sources like the JPost below, are not substantiated.

- The IDF has been attacking regularly inside Syrian territory over the past decade, so Syria is the most logical possibility. And since Israel rarely accepts responsibilities for those overnight attacks on Iranian weapons and ammunition depots or convoys headed to Lebanon with new rockets for Hezbollah, Kochavi chose not to name the country this time either.
- IDF Chief of Staff was probably referring to strikes against Hezbollah in Syria rather than IDF targeting installations in Yemen. Despite mutually hostile public statements, neither the NSG or Israelis have claimed this as an Israeli attack.
