- Tasnim news agency reported that ‘Israel has attacked an Iranian military advisory center’ in Syria
Beirut: Pro-Iran fighters were among six dead in an Israeli strike Monday on the Sayyida Zeinab district south of the Syrian capital Damascus, a war monitor said.
“Israeli strikes targeted a base belonging to Hezbollah and Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, killing six people” including pro-Iran fighters, said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, adding it was unclear whether civilians were among the dead.
Syrian state media said on Monday that “a number of Iranian advisers” were killed in an Israeli attack south of the capital, in a rare acknowledgment by Damascus of Iranian casualties in Israeli strikes on Syrian territory.
It also said civilians were killed but did not give a figure for either set of fatalities. Iran’s ambassador to Syria had earlier said there were no Iranian casualties
