Syria: 9 Iran-backed terrorists eliminated in Israeli strikes targeting Iranian weapons
BREAKING: Nine Iran-backed terrorists were eliminated late Saturday night during alleged Israeli airstrikes targeting weapon depots belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group in Syria.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that four Syrian nationals were among those eliminated in the strikes on the al-Abbas village near the border with Iraq.
The war monitor did not confirm who was behind the attack but said Israel was “likely responsible”.
Last week, at least four Israeli F-16 fighter jets bombed Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah targets in at least four locations. Seven Assad, Iranian and Iran-backed terrorists were eliminated and a number of others were wounded in the airstrikes near Sweida.
Israel has bombed the area on Syria’s border with Iraq several times in the past months, as Iran has been moving its assets to locations closer to the border with Iraq, specifically.
Israel has acknowledged carrying out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria in recent years, most of them aimed at arms shipments to be headed from Iran to its Shiite proxy Hezbollah.
