Three Iranians killed in Syrian airbase Israeli airstrike

Three Iranians killed in Syrian airbase Israeli airstrike

On Monday, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported, citing its own correspondent, that the Tiyas airbase in the province of Homs had been subjected to a missile attack.

The slain militia were identified as Ammar Mousavi, Akbar Zavar Jannati and Mehdi Lotfi Naysar.

Earlier, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed the airstrikes killed 14 people, including Iranian citizens at the military base near the city of Homs in Syria.

A missile strike on an air base in central Syria was carried out by Israeli warplanes in the early hours of Monday morning causing multiple casualties, according to the Syrian and Russian governments, amid fears of renewed regional confrontation.

Syria reported a missile strike at one of their air bases overnight, but the USA denied launching the attack.

Unconfirmed reports also suggest the presence of Iranian forces at the base.

Russian Federation and Syria claim Israel conducted the confusing pre-dawn airstrike on a Syrian airbase Monday. The statement also slams the U.S. for its support for Israel's 'dangerous, aggressive approach.' The Syrian Arab Republic has again called upon the Security Council to fulfill its responsibilities in the maintenance of global peace and security, to condemn this blatant Israeli aggression and to take resolute and immediate action to prevent the recurrence of such attacks. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad.

According to some reports, "Hezbollah" has already reinforced its positions south of the Litani River, an area protected by the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) under UN Security Council resolution 1701. Trump has declared his intent to withdraw US troops from Syria in the coming months, despite resistance from many of his advisers. Among them was a young man who appeared to have died foaming at the mouth and clutching his child.

The Syrian government denied the allegations, calling them "fabrications" by the Army of Islam and a "failed attempt" to impede government advances.

Syria first blamed the United States for the attack on the air base, which the US denied.

Also on Tuesday, Israeli Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan told the Hebrew-language Ynet news site that Israel's ties with Russian Federation are "very important", but "we have to adhere to our policy and not allow the Iranian enemy to cross our red lines".

The Assad government denied responsibility for the chemical attack.
