Iran vows revenge for 2 IRGC operatives killed in Syria strike attributed to Israel

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has vowed revenge for the deaths of two of its members in an alleged Israeli airstrike near the Syrian capital Damascus on Monday, according to Iranian media reports.

The war monitor said the strikes killed two pro-Iran militiamen and wounded six others, adding that it could not confirm civilian fatalities.

The target of the strikes was “a weapons and ammunition depot operated by Iran-backed militias near Damascus international airport,” the report said, rejecting SANA’s report that stated that the airstrike had destroyed a marble factory.

According to the Observatory, Israel has carried out raids in Syria at least seven times so far this year.
