SYRIA: Israeli airstrikes target Iranian militia positions around Daramsuq

DARAMSUQ — Syrian state-run media outlets reported a series of explosions around the capital Daramsuq (Damascus) on Sunday evening, likely caused by Israeli airstrikes targeting Iranian militia positions in the area.

The media outlets indicated that Syrian Arab Army air defenses responded to the attack but given the poor track record of Syria’s air defense, it is unlikely it stopped many, if any, of the Israeli missiles.

Iranian militias have imposed a security cordon around the Al-Sayeda Zeinab area, which was targeted by one of the Israeli airstrikes. No information has yet been received about the damage or casualties caused by the bombing.
