The recent Israeli strikes on Syria targeted an installation where Iranian officials were meeting to advance programmes to develop drone or missile, Reuters reported on February 22 citing multiple sources.
The strikes, which took place on February 19, hit a multi-storey building in the highly-secured Kafar Sousah neighborhood in Damascus, and several military positions in the outskirts of the capital.
A source close to the Syrian government told Reuters that the strikes targeted a gathering of Syrian and Iranian technical experts in drone manufacturing. The unnamed source noted that no top-level Iranian was killed.
“The strike hit the center where they were meeting as well as an apartment in a residential building. One Syrian engineer and one Iranian official – not high-ranking – were killed,” the source was quoted as saying.
The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency said that five, including four civilians, were killed and at least 15 others were wounded as a result of the strikes.
A second source, who spoke to Syrian security personnel briefed on the matter, said Iranians were attending the meeting of technical experts in an Iranian military installation in the basement of the Kafar Sousah building. He said one of those killed was a Syrian army civil engineer who worked at Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Centre.
Meanwhile, a regional security source told Reuters that an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) engineer involved in Iran’s missile programme was seriously wounded in the strikes and transferred to a hospital in Tehran, while two other mid-ranking Guards members at the meeting were unharmed.
Another source, a regional intelligence official familiar with the strikes, said the target was part of a covert guided missile production programme run by the IRGC. A fifth regional source with knowledge of the strike and its target, said officials from Iran and Hezbollah were targeted.
The strikes were Israel’s largest attack on Syria this year. Iran, Russia and Lebanon were among few countries who condemned the unprovoked attack.
The recent attacks were apparently a part of Israel’s “War-Between-Wars” military campaign, which is meant to push Iran and its allies out of the war-torn country as well as to prevent them from developing their offensive capabilities.
Is there anything this whinny little bastard excuse for a nation can do that south front will actually condemn it for, instead of blowing smoke up its arse every time it goes on a murderous rampage?
Why condemn they are keeping the balance between iran fully taking over the middle east and fucking everyone up in the process or them dealing only with their palestinian problems and trying to setup peqce tqlks with their neighbors.
I lived under iran and syria and suffered lets try the other side this time, because sure as hell the nations cant govern for shit by themselves as evidence in fucking lebanon and syria and fuk all the rest of the rogue arab world.
I’ve seen how you comment, you talk like you’re a hasbra bot. Israel hasn’t taken over shit, they’re trying to create an Arab nato with the imbeciles of the world who are too incompetent to do anything themselves aka Arab league.
Guest You mean it ok for USA to take over Middle East but to fight back is a crime ?
S Balu can’t see the obvious. Erdogan, Khomeini and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood were helped by the UK.
Nope simply means i choose the lesser of two evils and believe me the west is just that. No freedom or self governance to these degenerate countries that deserve to be colonized because we have seen too well what happens when they govern their own people who are equally reaponsible and corrupt as their dictators and so called oligarchs. So fuck them all i want to live.
You sound like an exemplary example of what is popularly known as a Zionist whore. You bend over and take it up the cooler. You sell your wife and daughters for a few shekels. You betray your culture for a few cocks in your backside. A whore of high distinction.
ooops we have a class A fucktard here impersonating as an anti zionist bitch, its the only thing he knows how to do best because because his IQ level is way below average, he reminds me of a brainwashed ISIS moron who thinks 72 virgins are waiting for him if he kills evil americanas.
Fuck off you cockroach you have wasted 20 seconds of my life typing this shit as a reply.
More distraction to protect boorla and bibi from the secret contracts to depopulate the israeli people…they will resort to anything to prevent their population from learning their vicious attacks upon their own blood. They are the lowest forms of traitors to israel: they masquerade with their billions while secretly enjoying the power of killing israeli families and children. Give them the justice they have earned.
A good Israeli vermin is a dead Israeli vermin shlomo! Sub humans are zionists.
