EL CAIRO, Aug. 26 (Reuters / EP) –
The head of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards of Iran, Qassem Soleimani, described this Sunday as “crazy operations” the Israeli air attack in Syria and the drones that fell in Beirut.
“These crazy operations have been the last of the Zionist regime,” Soleimani said through his Twitter social network account, referring to Israel. The message, which he has published next to a photo of himself, has written it in three different languages.
The Israeli Army confirmed Saturday that it had attacked several targets in the village of Aqrabah, south of Damascus, to thwart an attack by the Revolutionary Guard against northern Israel.
The Israeli Army has carried out dozens of bombings in Syria arguing that it acts to prevent the establishment of Iranian bases in the country and the sending of weapons to the Lebanese Shiite militia party Hezbollah by Iran.
For its part, the Lebanese government reported the fall of two drones on the southern Beirut neighborhoods considered a Hizbollah stronghold and pointed Israel as responsible for the attack.
A first drone, apparently a reconnaissance drone, fell into the city without being confirmed if it was shot down and a second device apparently contained explosives and exploded before reaching its target in the form of a “suicide drone.”
Hezbollah's general secretary, Hasan Nasralá, denounced this Sunday that the drones that fell were a premeditated attack by Israel against his organization in what is the first violation by Israel of the ceasefire agreed in 2006.
