DAMASCUS: Two people were killed and several wounded on Monday in what Iranian and Syrian media said was an Israeli attack on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, with Iran’s ambassador to Damascus denying reports the location was an Iranian military post.
An Israeli military spokesperson declined to comment.
Iranian state media reported the two deaths but did not identify the victims. Tasnim news agency said Israel “attacked an Iranian military advisory centre” in Syria, but Iran’s envoy to Syria, Hossein Akbari, denied the details on the target and said the casualties were not Iranian. Syrian state media, citing a military source, said Israel had launched an air assault on several locations south of Damascus. In a first version of the story on its site, Syrian news agency SANA said the dead included an unspecified number of “Iranian advisers” – a rare admission of Iranian casualties by Damascus – but the site was updated to remove the reference.
The attack comes a day after three US troops were killed in a drone attack on a military outpost in Jordan, the first time American troops have been killed under fire since the Israel-Gaza war erupted in October.
Israel has also ramped up its years-long policy of striking Iran-linked targets in Syria, with deadlier attacks against both Iranian installations as well as Tehran’s Lebanese ally Hezbollah, which is deployed in Syria. An Israeli strike earlier this month killed an intelligence chief in the Iranian Guards’ Quds Force, along with four others.
