Missile attack kills three military servicemen in Damascus suburb - agency - TASS

At least three Syrian military servicemen have been killed in an Israeli missile attack on a Damascus suburb, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

According to the news agency, another soldier suffered wounds. Syria’s air defenses intercepted several missiles before they hit their targets, SANA said, adding that the attack had come from the Golan Heights.

The Israel Defense Forces said in a tweet that "the Iranian Quds Force and Syrian Armed Forces targets in Syria" were hit after improvised explosive devices had been placed "by the Alpha Line to hit Israeli troops.".


  1. El Ejército de Israel comunicó que había atacado los objetivos en Siria asociados con la Fuerza Quds de la Guardia Revolucionaria de Irán, así como con las Fuerzas Armadas sirias.

    "Acabamos de atacar los blancos de la Fuerza Quds iraní y de las Fuerzas Armadas sirias en Siria", escribieron las Fuerzas de Defensa israelíes en su cuenta de Twitter.

    1. Se precisa que el ataque fue lanzado en respuesta a la instalación por Siria e Irán de varios "explosivos improvisados cerca de la linea Alpha con el fin de atacar a las tropas israelíes".

      Las Fuerzas de Defensa de Israel agregaron que están preparadas para resistir al reforzamiento de posiciones iraníes en Siria.

  2. Israel launched air raids against what it called a wide range of Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria on Wednesday, sending a signal that it will pursue its policy of striking across the border despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s election defeat.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, said at least 10 people were killed. Syria’s state news agency reported three military personnel killed and one wounded.

    1. The Observatory said the dead included five Iranians from the elite Quds Force and at least two Lebanese or Iraqi Shi’ite militiamen. A commander of pro-Damascus forces denied Iranians or Lebanese were among the casualties

    2. Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman, said eight targets were hit, belonging to the Syrian army or the Quds Force, in areas stretching from the Syrian-controlled side of the Golan Heights to the Damascus periphery.

      They included an Iranian headquarters at Damascus international airport, a “secret military site” that hosted Iranian military delegations, and the 7th Division of the Syrian armed forces, he said. Syrian surface-to-air defences were also hit after firing at Israeli planes and missiles, Conricus said.

      A former Syrian military commander told Reuters the attacks also targeted bases of the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah in Syria. Conricus made no mention of Hezbollah.

  3. srael will not allow Iranian military entrenchment against the Jewish state in Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a trilateral meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Bahraini Foreign Minister Dr Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani.

    The prime minister warned that any attempt to attack Israel will not be tolerated and would lead to consequences.
