IDF allegedly attacked targets in Syria overnight

The Israeli Air Force is alleged to have conducted overnight aerial strike on Syrian military positions and Iranian-backed militia fighters in a Damascus suburb.

Syrian security sources confirmed two waves of incoming missiles at 1:12 and 1:41 AM from the direction of Southern Lebanon and Israel’s Golan Heights. Several of the rockets were intercepted while others managed to evade aerial systems in the Arab Republic, causing what the Syrian military reported as injury to ‘eight fighters’ as well as ‘material damage.’

the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights disputed the official casualty assessment by claiming that 12 militiamen were killed in the alleged Israeli strike, which the monitoring group said targeted multiple Syrian Army and Iranian-proxy positions “west and south” of the capital. It further noted that the bombardment sparked a blaze at the Scientific Research Center in the Damascus suburb of Jamraya.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit has refused to confirm or deny involvement with the strikes, reiterating only that it does not comment to foreign reports vis-à-vis its operational activities.
