Israel has launched hundreds of strikes on Iran-linked military targets in Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges such operations. "A military post belonging to the Syrian Resistance for the Liberation of the Golan militia was also targeted near the village of Ruweihina at the Syrian border" with Israel.
The eight fighters are not Syrians, the organisation's Director Rami Abdel Rahman said, without specifying their nationality. It also caused the destruction of a missile depot.
"At 23.50... the Zionist enemy carried out an airstrike from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan towards (an area) south of Damascus", said a Syrian military source.
There was no Israeli Occupation to these strikes.
There was no immediate Israeli comment late Tuesday. The observatory says the killing recorded was of 19 fighters mostly foreign.
The Israeli Occupation army announced a week ago that its fighters bombed "military targets of the Quds Force and the Syrian army", in what it considered a "response" to the discovery of explosive devices along the northern border. Israeli officials claimed that the bombs were planted by members of the Syrian Armed Forces and the Iranian Quds Force, and that the act was a violation of Israel's sovereignty.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have in recent weeks been told to gird for the possibility that America will strike at Iran before President Donald Trump is set to leave office in favor of a new Joe Biden administration in January, senior Israeli officials said, according to Axios.
Syria's war has killed more than 380,000 people and displaced millions more since starting in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.
