Zionist regime fighter jets bomb positions in southwestern Syria, neighboring Iraq: Report

Israeli military aircraft have reportedly carried out a string of airstrikes against positions in Syria’s southwestern provinces of Daraa and As-Suwayda as well as neighboring Iraq.

Sabereen News, a Telegram news channel associated with Iraqi anti-terror Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), reported that the warplanes targeted a radar site, which lies between the town of Izra’ and Qarfa village, early on Friday.

There were no immediate reports about the extent of damage caused and possible casualties.

Israeli fighter jets also bombed al-Thalaa Airport in Syria’s southwestern province of As-Suwayda.

Additionally, the sound of three explosions was heard close to Bismayah, situated about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) southeast of the Iraqi capital city of Baghdad, with no reports of casualties immediately available.

Several blasts also rattled through the northern part of Iraq’s central province of Babylon.

Drone alert sirens go off in northern occupied lands

Meanwhile, aircraft intrusion sirens were sounded in several towns on the border between the northern side of the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories and Lebanon, warning of incoming rocket fire.

Israeli media outlets reported that sirens went off in the towns of Eilon, Hanita, Zarit, Even Menachem, Gornot HaGalil, Adamit, Shtula, Ya’ara, Goren, Arab al-Aramshe and Shomera.

A number of missiles fired from southern Lebanon also landed in Ramim area of the Upper Galilee region.

Sirens were also sounded in Margaliot moshav and Kiryat Shmona city.

Additionally, Israeli media reported that a fire broke out inside Yir’on kibbutz in the Galilee Panhandle region as Hezbollah rockets hit the area.

Hezbollah fighters also pounded a building used by Israeli soldiers in al-Manara settlement, striking the designated target precisely.

The Lebanese resistance fighters targeted Ruwaisat al-Alam and Zibdin sites in the occupied Lebanese Kfar Shuba Hills with salvos of rockets and artillery shells.

The Israeli regime has repeatedly attacked southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war on Gaza that has killed at least 33,970 Palestinians, most of them women and children.

In retaliation, Hezbollah has launched near-daily rocket attacks on Israeli positions.

At least 349 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including 68 civilians.

The fighting has forced the evacuation of tens of thousands from the northern part of the occupied territories, amid rocket fire and shelling carried out by Hezbollah and allied Palestinian groups.

Hezbollah has already fought off two Israeli wars against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006. The resistance forced the regime to retreat in both conflicts.

20 Syrian soldiers in two Daesh terrorist attacks

Separately, at least 20 Syrian soldiers and affiliated pro-government forces were killed in two attacks by Takfiri Daesh terrorists.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that a total of “16 regime forces and pro-government gunmen were killed in a Daesh attack on a military bus in the eastern countryside of Homs province.”

The Britain-based war monitor noted that the dead included at least nine members of the Quds Brigade, a group comprising Palestinian fighters.

Four Syrian soldiers were killed in another Daesh attack on a military site in the Albukamal countryside in eastern Syria.
