Iran has leveled accusations against Israel, alleging its involvement in an airstrike on Damascus that resulted in the death of five Iranian soldiers, including key figures such as Gen. Sadegh Omidzadeh, the intelligence head officer of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's Quds Force in Syria, and his deputy, Hajj Gholam. The strike, which occurred on Saturday night, also claimed the lives of soldiers Hossein Mohammadi, Saeed Karimi, and Mohammad.
Reports from Iranian media confirm the casualties and assert that Israel is responsible for the attack. The airstrike is said to be part of Israel's ongoing efforts to counter Iranian bases in Syria, which have been implicated in attacks against Israel.
Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have been executing airstrikes beyond their borders, targeting locations in Lebanon, Syria, and Iran based on specific intelligence indicating the presence of individuals sought by Israel. Despite these actions, Israel has not officially claimed responsibility for the recent airstrike in Damascus. The situation underscores the regional tensions and the complex dynamics involving Israel, Iran, and Syria.
