Three Airstrikes Kill Seven in Syria


Three separate airstrikes in Syria Wednesday night took the lives of two Syrian soldiers and five members of pro-Iranian militias.

The strikes took place in the southern province of Sweida, and the northern city of Hama, according to the Times of Israel.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said Israeli strikes had targeted “Iranian militia positions in Tel al-Sahen,” killing the Syrian soldiers, while five Iranian-backed fighters were killed and several others critically wounded in a separate strike on a “military center” near Deir Ezzor, in eastern Syria.

The strikes led to “widespread damage” in communications towers and ignited fires in the area. Iranian-backed militias were also present in the area, the observatory said.

According to one media outlet, four planes took part in the attacks . This is the fourth time this month that Iranian positions have been targeted in Syria.
