Israel targets Iranian consulate in Damascus in a terrorist attack

Israel has targeted the Iranian consulate in the Syrian capital in a terrorist attack, leaving seven people martyred including a senior Revolution Guards commander.

Syria’s official news agency, SANA, said the strikes were carried out by “the Israeli enemy” and targeted the Consular Section of the Iranian Embassy in the Mezzeh neighborhood in Damascus on Monday afternoon.

“At approximately 00:17 p.m. today, the Israeli enemy launched an air aggression from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan, targeting the Iranian consulate building in Damascus,” SANA said, citing a military source as saying.

“Our air defense media responded to the aggression’s missiles and shot down some of them. The aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of everyone inside, and work is underway to recover the bodies.”

The news agency also reported that the Israeli aggression also caused major destruction to “neighboring buildings.”
