At least five suspected pro-government militia soldiers were killed in the airstrike around the Syrian capital Damascus on Monday, the Syrian human rights observatory said on Tuesday.
The London-based organization and whistleblowers in the Arab country said on its website that the attack was carried out by Israeli aircraft, and it said it also left eleven wounded – seven Syrian soldiers and four militiamen -. .
It was also found that the attack destroyed an arms store that the Israeli army has not spoken of. Syria has claimed to have intercepted several missiles and has accused the Israeli authorities of what happened.
Military sources, cited by the Syrian state news agency SANA, have confirmed that seven soldiers were wounded and the attack has done material damage without further details or revealing the target of the attack.
Israel has carried out air operations against the Arab country, arguing that it is preventing Iran from establishing Iranian bases in Syria and sending arms to the Lebanese Shiite militia party, Hezbollah, which also supports the government of Bashar al Assad.
