Israeli strikes kill 19 Iranian-backed fighters in E Syria

Report: Syria claims Israeli attack on post south of capital Israeli army preparing in case US strikes Iran during last of Trump's term: Axios news site

The strikes targeted an arms depot and a position held by Iranian forces and their Lebanese ally Hezbollah near the capital Damascus, and a pro-Iran militia position in southern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

SANA also reported another strike against the village of Rwihinah in the southern province of Quneitra near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, without reporting any casualties from either attack.

Officials with knowledge of the instruction explained to the outlet that the IDF was informed by the Israeli government of the change not because it had confirmed knowledge of an imminent USA strike, but rather because Israeli officials felt that if such an attack unfolded, they would not have sufficient time to be fully prepared. The strikes came after Israeli officials said explosives were found on the Israeli side of the border with Syria and claimed "Iranian-led" forces had planted them.

On Saturday night, airstrikes killed 14 pro-Iran militia fighters from Iraq and Afghanistan in east Syria, adding they were likely Israeli air raids.

The area has anti-aircraft missiles that are stationed to defend the Syrian Golan Heights along the border with Israel, the military sources said. Last week's operation appeared to be sending a public message to Iran and Syria after discovering the anti-personnel mines near its troops.

Earlier this year, Israeli military affairs analyst Amos Yadlin noted that Israeli military action in Syria was "a message to the powers and elements of the Shiite axis...the [Israeli] campaign against the Iranian regime began before the Trump administration, and will continue after it".

This report comes just a few days after news that the president had recently asked for military options for just such an attack.
