Thirty members of Iranian Revolutionary Guard killed by Israeli jets

Thirty members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards force were killed by Israeli jets on Thursday

Thirty members of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) were killed by Israeli jets on Thursday, Iranian media outlets reported on Thursday.

Israeli jets on Thursday bombed several areas near Damascus as well as in southern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said to Al-Arabiya.

“Israeli forces bombarded for an hour positions in the southern and southwestern suburbs of Damascus as well as in the south of Syria at the border of Quneitra province,” the Observatory’s chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

Earlier, Syrian state media said air defenses downed a number of “hostile targets” close to the capital. “Our air defenses fired on hostile targets over the Kisweh area and downed them,” the official SANA news agency reported, citing a military source.

Israel has carried out hundreds of air strikes in neighboring Syria against what it says are Iranian targets. Syrian air defenses in September opened fire to intercept alleged Israeli missiles targeting ammunition depots in the northwestern province of Latakia, but instead downed a Russian jet.
