Missile Attack in Syria Left 26 Dead

Missile Attack in Syria Left 26 Dead

In Iran, there were conflicting reports on the casualties and on whether Iranian assets were struck.

But a UK-based monitoring group said 26 pro-government fighters were killed, majority were Iranians. However, he said that the counterattack would not take place before the May 6 election in Lebanon.

It said the death toll could rise as the attack also wounded 60 fighters and there were several others still missing.

Iranian state television, citing Syrian media, reported Monday's attack. By striking missile depots with the types of weapons Iran likely would fire from Syria, Israel may have been acting to preempt retaliation. It cited "local sources and activists" for its report. The Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar, the mouthpiece of Hizbullah, writes that a night attack - "a slap in the face to the center axis of Resistance - Iran." the newspaper expressed confidence that "the answer will follow immediately".

There was also no immediate comment from Israel, which rarely confirms or denies its attacks.

As a result of the Security Cabinet meeting, party meetings that had been scheduled for Likud, Kulanu and Jewish Home were canceled.

The tenth channel is also recalled that last night held a telephone conversation between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald trump. The White House explained that both leaders spoke about threats y are planning on Middle East, and in particular on Iranian military expansion in region. After the meeting Pompeo said that the USA "remains deeply concerned about Iran's risky escalation of threats toward Israel and the region". Israel is known to have these weapons, which were acquired from the United States. "Iran supports and creates proxies around Israel".

According to the Orient news outlet, which is affiliated with the Syrian rebels, the blasts occurred in a base belonging to the Syrian army's 47th Brigade, which is being used by Iran-backed Shiite militias. The latest strikes came amid heightened tensions in Syria after Damascus and its ally Iran accused Israel on April 9 of conducting deadly strikes against a military base in the centre of the country. Tehran has vowed to retaliate for the T4 attack.

Spyer said that with Israel determined to prevent the "consolidation and entrenchment" of Iranian influence in Syria, "the chances of confrontation between Israel and Iran are quite significant".

Khamenei said that the Iranian military will respond to each such attack.

Meanwhile, flight tracking data showed that a Syrian cargo flight from Tehran had landed at a military airport in the city of Hama on Sunday less than twenty-four hours before a powerful explosion rocked a Syrian military base there.
