Just two days after alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted a number of sites around Syria, 10 pro-Iranian militants were killed in airstrikes by unidentified aircraft in central Syria on Thursday night, according to the local Ayn Al-Furat news source.
One of those killed in the strikes was an Iraqi leader named Abu Al-Hassan, according to the report. Afghani militants were also among those killed in the strikes.
Also on Thursday night, two members of the Iraqi Hezbollah militia were killed and a number of others were wounded after unidentified aircraft targeted a site belonging to the militia near Sabikhan in the Deir Ezzor region of eastern Syria, according to the Shahed news agency.
At least seven Syrian soldiers and pro-Iranian militants were killed and a number of others were wounded in the first wave of strikes which targeted a number of locations belonging to Syrian and pro-Iranian forces in southern and eastern Syria. Among the targets was a communications center and radar in Tel el-Sahn near As-Suwayda. An Iranian arms shipment arrived in the As-Suwayda area on Tuesday morning, according to Al-Arabiya.
Just hours later, a number of sites near Hama in western-central Syria were targeted by alleged Israeli airstrikes. The targeted sites were used as weapons depots by Iranian forces, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
