Israel Hits Iran-Backed Fighters in Southern Syria

2020-10-21 | Since 1 Month

An Israeli strike hit on Wednesday the province of Quneitra in southern Syria, with a war monitor saying the attack targeted a base for pro-Iran militias.

A missile hit a school in a village in Quneitra's northern countryside, state media reported, without providing additional detail.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Israel was "likely" responsible for the missile attack.

It said the assault, which targeted a base for militias backed by Tehran, left casualties in their ranks.

Israel has carried out hundreds of air and missile strikes on Syria since the civil war broke out in 2011, targeting Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah forces as well as regime troops.
