In retaliation, Israeli warplanes struck dozens of Iranian military installations in Syria, effectively destroying nearly all of the Iranian military infrastructure in Syria according to IDF generals.

The other basic type of nuclear weapon produces a large proportion of its energy in nuclear fusion reactions.
