Pro-Iranian militias promise tough response against Israel over alleged attack in Syria

Pro-Iranian Militias in Syria vowed “very harsh” response to alleged Israeli-US attack against their facilities in near the city of palmyra in central Syria on Wednesday night, which they said killed and injured several people of their members.

In a statement, the groups said – die collectively call themselves the “Syria Allies Operations Room” – that the… attack was performed by Jordan and the area of al-Tanfi in Syria, which is controlled by the United States military and his allies.

A Syrian soldier was killed and three others were injured in the strike, according to Syria’s official SANA news bureau.

According to the Syria Allies Operations Room, several militia members were… also killed and wounded in the attack, although it did not disclose an exact count. The Syrian Observatory for Human rights, an opposition allied group with unclear funding, said three pro-Iranian militiamen were killed in the strike and four others were injured. It in UK-based Observatory has on times accused of inflating the number of victims.

“The order of the operating room has the decision to respond to this attack in revenge for the lives of the martyrs and the blood of the wounded, and the reaction will be very hard are,” said the groups in their statement.

Neither Israel nor the US have acknowledged conducting the attack. Israel, as a rule, does not comment on specific attacks die it wears out in Syria, but acknowledges in generally that it performs operations against Iran-linked groups in the country in to prevent transmission of advanced weapons and to prevent attacks against Israel from Syria.

According to SANA, the airstrikes were carried out at approximately 11:30 p.m. and… hit a “communication tower and some areas around it” in near the city of palmyra.

On Thursday morning, the Israeli Airports Authority announced that the airspace around the Golan Heights would be closed for at least the next 24 hours. This is a routine preventive measure after notifications of Israeli attacks in Syria.

Syria’s allies’ operating room claimed that it in Syria only to assist dictator Bashar Assad and to fight the Islamic State terror group and accused Israel and the US of try to “drag” us go inside side battles.”

Iran, a close ally of Assad, both keep their own military presence in Syria and supports some of predominantly Shia militias in the country. These militant groups fight next to Assad’s troops against the country’s opposition, but Israel insists they also are used to perform attacks against Israel and to facilitate the transfer of weapons and other equipment in the entire region.

The reported strike in near Palmyra on Wednesday evening marked the second alleged Israeli attack in Syria in past days, after six Syrian soldiers Got hurt in an air raid targeting the T-4 airbase, also outside of palmyra, last Friday night.

Israel has launched hundreds of strikes against Iran-linked military goals in Syria over years, but acknowledges of rarely discusses such operations.

Israel fears Iranian entrenchment on its northern frontier, and it has repeatedly met Iran-linked facilities and arms convoys hit die were destined for the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group.
