Friday, 29 March 2024 | An unknown number of people were killed on Thursday in an airstrike near Damascus attributed to the Israeli Air Force [IAF], per local reports.

Sky News Arabia cited the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights [SOHR] as saying that “several” Syrians working with Hezbollah terrorists were killed and five were wounded in the strike on a building in the Sayyidah Zaynab area, about 6 miles [9.6 km.] south of the country’s capital.

A Syrian government military source told state media agency SANA that the alleged Israeli attack also resulted in “material losses.”

At least 12 Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps [IRGC] members, including a top commander, were killed in an airstrike on Syria overnight on Monday, the SOHR reported on Tuesday.

The UK-based group said that the “unknown aerial bombardment” had targeted IRGC-affiliated militia sites in eastern Syria. Local Syrian media reported that the commander of IRGC-affiliated forces in the region—known as “Al-Haj Askar”—was seriously wounded in one of the strikes. Other reports indicated that he was killed.

Israel has allegedly struck hundreds of targets in Syria in recent years as part of an effort to prevent further Iranian military entrenchment in the country. Jerusalem rarely acknowledges such attacks.

On February 4, Israeli military spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari revealed that the IAF has attacked more than 50 targets belonging to Hezbollah and other Iran-backed terrorist groups in Syria since the October 7 Hamas terrorist attacks in southern Israel.
