Israel kills 11 Iranians in Syria

The observatory initially reported 23 killed in the strikes and did not specify their nationality.

That brings to 42, including 19 Iranians, the total killed during the two days of strikes.

Minister of military affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, claimed that Israel had "hit nearly all of the Iranian infrastructure in Syria" in response to a barrage of 20 rockets fired at Israeli military outposts in the occupied Golan Heights.

Israel said its Thursday strikes were in response to a barrage of Iranian rockets on its positions in the occupied Golan Heights, the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date.

"Already this week, the IRGC has fired rockets at Israeli citizens, and Iran's proxies in Yemen have launched a ballistic missile at Riyadh", it said, referring to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. The annexation has not be recognised by the global community. "They will never abandon the U.S. for us", said Poormoslem, a housewife at the rally. "I hope we've finished this episode and everyone understood".

The Jewish state has long warned it will not accept Iran entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria, where the Islamic Republic backs Assad's regime in the country's seven-year civil war.

This was stated by Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Expert. Earlier in the day, Ryabkov had said that Moscow's "European partners" should also work to keep the deal together.

Israeli forces have been blamed for a series of recent strikes inside Syria that have killed Iranians, though it has not acknowledged those raids.

The phone calls came a few days after US President Donald Trump defied protests and last-minute lobbying by his European partners and unilaterally chose to withdraw from the historic nuclear accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and impose new sanctions on Tehran.

Iran says it is ready to restart its nuclear programme on an "industrial scale".

The United States has said that despite its withdrawal from the nuclear accord, it wants inspections by the UN's nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, to continue in Iran.

All other signatories had sought to maintain the agreement. "The Israeli claim was made to portray its attacks on Syria as an attempt to contain Iran, thus winning the approval of the USA and the Saudis", he said.
