Beirut – An Israeli air strike in central Syria killed one Syrian soldier and three pro-Iranian fighters on Wednesday, a Britain-based war monitor said.
The Syrian state news agency SANA had earlier quoted a military source as saying that the attack near the city of Palmyra in Homs province had killed a soldier and wounded three others.
The source told SANA:
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitor, said the attack
targeted several Iranian positions, among them the communication tower, near
the T4 airbase east of Palmyra.
It reported that the attack killed one Syrian soldier and three pro-Iranian fighters, but their nationality was not immediately clear.
Seven others, among them three Syrian soldiers, were wounded.
Last week, an Israeli missile strike on the same airbase killed two pro-Iranian foreign fighters, the Observatory reported.
SANA said six soldiers were wounded in that attack.
