Israeli strike on Syria kills 14 killed

Israeli strike on Syria kills 14 killed

Seven European army employees were killed on Monday at the strike about the Tiyas, or T4, air base near Homs, as stated by the Iranian news agency Tasnim.

Earlier on Monday, Syria's state news agency SANA said the attack was likely "an American aggression", but US officials said the United States had not launched the strikes.

Shi'ite-dominated Iran is Assad's main regional ally and has provided military and economic support for his conflict with a range of Sunni Muslim rebel and militant groups.

Eastern Ghouta was the last significant area controlled by the rebels in the vicinity of the capital, and though a government victory was a foregone conclusion after troops launched a major offensive in February, the capitulation came as yet another milestone in the Assad Government's march toward defeating its opponents. A larger one would run the risk of confrontation with Iran and Russian Federation, who have both repeatedly expressed their desire to see the United States leave Syria. Observers said 14 people were killed in the attack.

Syria finally joined the convention in 2013, admitting under heavy US-Russian pressure to having a toxic arms stockpile, and staving off threatened US air strikes.

Syria responded to Trump's threats by evacuating airports and military airbases, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. He added that it also hit posts outside the base used by the Iranians and Iran-backed fighters.

Last week, President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation met with his Iranian and Turkish counterparts to determine the future of Syria, a development Block warned "should send chills down our spine".

US President Donald Trump and French counterpart Emmanuel Macron have vowed a strong response to the suspected poison gas attack, which left dozens dead, and the UN Security Council was expected to discuss the crisis later today.

In recent months, Israeli officials have been gravely concerned by Iran's efforts to build permanent military bases inside Syria.

Valiati praised the actions of the Syrian army in the attack.

Eastern Ghouta, which is home to almost 400,000 people, fell to multiple militant groups in 2012, months after Syria plunged into crisis and has since served as a launch pad for fatal attacks against residents and infrastructure in Damascus. More than 1,000 Iranians have been killed in Syria's civil war, including senior members of the Guards.
