Israel killed top Iranian advisers in Syria & two Hamas members in lebanon
Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) says four of its “military advisers” have been killed in an Israeli air strike on a residential building in Syria’s capital, Damascus.
Iran’s semi-official Mehr news agency said the attacks killed the IRGC’s Syria intelligence chief, his deputy, as well as two other Guard members in Syria.
The IRGC said in a statement on Saturday that the advisors were martyred along with a number of Syrian forces in the attack in Damascus.
The attack targeted a three-story residential building in the city’s Mezza neighborhood which houses several diplomatic missions.
On January 16, IRGC fired barrages of ballistic missiles at Syrian bases of terrorists involved in recent terrorist attacks in Iran, as well as an Israeli espionage center in the Iraqi Kurdistan region.
On December 2, Israel also killed two IRGC military advisors — Mohammad Ali Ataee Shoorcheh and Panah Taqizadeh — in an attack in Syria.
On December 25, an Israeli air attack on a suburb of Damascus killed Iranian general Sayyed Razi Mousavi, a longtime IRGC adviser in Syria.
In Lebanon today, an Israeli drone targeted a car passing through the Tyre region in Southern Lebanon. Local news sources claim that two members of the Hamas Resistance group were killed during the Israeli strike.
The vehicle was traveling along a road linking the Bazourieh area to Burj el-Shemali region in the southern district of Tyre.
The Israeli drone attack came amid strikes by fighters from Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah against Israeli military positions in response to the ongoing Israeli genocidal campaign in the besieged Gaza Strip.
