Iran vows "crushing response" to any Israeli action against regional interests

Iran vows

The last time Tel Aviv rained down missiles on Damascus was just one week ago, forcing the Syrian government to activate its air defenses to repel the attack.

Israel does not usually comment on reports concerning its airstrikes in neighboring Syria, though it has frequently attacked what it says are Iranian targets there.

In a statement on Wednesday, Mousavi dismissed the claims and threats from an official of the Zionist regime against Iran, stressing, "The Islamic Republic of Iran will show a crushing and regrettable response to any act of aggression or stupid measure from that regime (Israel) against our country's interests in Syria and the region".

Rami Abdul Rahman, the head of the Observatory, said the dead were three Syrian soldiers and four members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard.

"Our air defences intercepted hostile targets over the skies of Damascus", state agency SANA said.

A Syrian army source quoted by SANA, the state news agency, said the attack took place at 23.45 (21:45 GMT), when an AFP correspondent in Damascus heard loud blasts.

It said the "missiles were launched from over the occupied Golan Heights". It said some missiles hit their intended targets, which included a weapons depot near the airport.

Israel's political leadership has spoken publicly of the bombing campaign, although the army rarely comments on individual strikes.

On February 6, the Syrian Observatory monitored Israeli shelling of sites belonging to the Syrian army and pro-Iranian militias of the 91st Division near Kiswa, and the 75th Brigade in the vicinity of al-Muqaylabiyah, west of Damascus, as well as the sites in the Jisr Baghdad area on the Damascus-Homs road, and the agricultural airport south of Izraa in Daraa Governorate.

Qassem Soleimani, the head of the IRGC's elite Quds Force, was killed in a USA drone strike on Baghdad airport at the beginning of this year.
