“Iranian personnel among dozens dead” in missile attacks
April 30, 2018 -- A missile attack against military sites in northern Syria has killed at least 26 pro-government fighters, mostly Iranians, a UK-based monitoring group said, amid soaring mideast tensions between Israel and Iran.
It is not known who was behind the attacks. Western nations and Israel have previously hit sites in Syria.
Earlier this month, the U.S., UK and France bombed three facilities they said were associated with the Syrian government's alleged chemical weapons programme.
Israel is meanwhile alleged to have hit an airbase serving as an Iranian drone command centre. Seven Iranian soldiers were among 14 military personnel killed in that attack.
