“At around 11:34 pm the Israeli enemy carried out an air strike … in the Palmyra area targeting the communications tower and several positions in its vicinity,” the military source told TO YOU.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based Syrian war monitor, said the strikes targeted several pro-Iranian militia positions. The targets included a communications tower near T4 Air Base east of Palmyra.
The nationalities of the three pro-Iranian militiamen injured in the Israeli airstrike are not yet known.
Last week, an Israeli missile attack on the same air base killed two pro-Iranian foreign militiamen. TO YOU reported that six Syrian soldiers were injured in the attack.
Since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war in 2011, Israel has regularly carried out air strikes inside Syria, mostly targeting Syrian government forces, as well as Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah forces allied to the Damascus regime.
The Israeli army rarely admits to its attacks but has said repeatedly that it will not allow Syria to become a stronghold of its arch-enemy Iran.
