Israeli airstrikes on a weapons stockpile in Syria on Sunday killed two pro-Iran troops and injured three soldiers, according to a war monitor.

“Israeli strikes attacked a weapons storage belonging to pro-Iran troops located between Tartus and Hama provinces,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

“Two pro-Iran fighters were killed and three Syrian soldiers were wounded,” he told.

According to SANA, Syria’s national news agency, “at around 7:15 a.m., the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack, firing missiles from the direction of north Lebanon with targets in the Tartus and Hama countryside.”

SANA did not specify the target but said the attack “wounded three soldiers and caused some material losses,” adding that some of the missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defenses.

The Israeli military said it did not comment “on reports in the foreign media”.

Since Syria’s civil conflict began in 2011, Israel has launched hundreds of airstrikes against its northern neighbor, hitting government forces as well as allied Iran-backed forces and Hezbollah fighters in Lebanon.

The Israeli military rarely comments on specific operations against Syria but has consistently vowed to maintain its air war to prevent arch-adversary Iran from cementing its foothold.

According to the Observatory, Israeli airplanes killed three people in a raid on the airport in Aleppo, Syria’s second-largest city, on Tuesday.

According to the war monitor, on February 19, an Israeli attack killed 15 people in a Damascus district that contains state security institutions.
