By Dr. Karmon Ely -

On the overnight hours of July 20, 2020, Israel’s Air Force reportedly struck multiple military sites in Damascus. Syria’s state news agency (SANA) said seven Syrian soldiers were wounded in the attacks, but according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), five pro-Iranian soldiers were killed and four were wounded in the airstrikes.

The attack came a week and a half after Iran and Syria signed an agreement that would see Tehran upgrade the Syrian military’s air defenses, in response to ongoing Israeli strikes in the country.

Less than 24 hours later, the website Central Military Media, an official source for Hezbollah and Axis of Resistance related news, confirmed the killing of a Hezbollah fighter, Ali Kamel Mohsen Jawad, during the reported Israeli airstrikes in Damascus.
