MADRID, 29 Ene. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Syrian authorities confirmed this Monday the death of several people in a bombing carried out by the Israeli Army against an area located south of the capital, Damascus, after which the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has indicated that the objectives are positions of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the area.
Syrian military sources have specified that the attack was carried out by "the Zionist enemy" around 1:00 p.m. (local time) and have added that "several points south of Damascus" have been attacked. "There are several civilians who have fallen martyrs and who have been injured, in addition to material losses," they said, according to a statement published by the Syrian Ministry of Defense through its account on the social network Facebook.
For its part, the Observatory, based in London and with informants in the Asian country, has stated that seven people, including two Syrian nationals, have died in the attacks. Likewise, he has detailed that the bombings have been carried out in the Sayida Zainab area and has stressed that one of the deceased is close to an officer of the Revolutionary Guard.
According to information provided by the Iranian news agency Tasnim through its account on the social network X, the attacks have hit an "Iranian advisory center." Tehran uses the term "advisors" for personnel deployed in Syria in support of the country's president, Bashar al Assad, an ally of Iran.
The event takes place about a week after the death of at least five members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in an attack blamed on Israel against a neighborhood in the southwest of Damascus. Likewise, in December a senior official in this branch of the Armed Forces died in another bombing in the Syrian capital.
The Israeli authorities, who have not commented on this new bombing, recognize attacks in Syria, arguing that they are acting to prevent the establishment of Iranian bases and the sending of weapons to the Lebanese Shiite militia party Hezbollah by Tehran, which supports Al Assad in the context of the war that broke out in 2011.
