The Syrian military is blaming Israel and the United States for an attack on Shiite militia forces at a site near the Syria-Iraqi border in the wee hours of Monday morning.

A Syrian military official told the Hezbollah-linked al-Mayadeen network on Monday that Israel and the US are responsible for the attack, which he claimed targeted a “Syrian base” under construction for “regime forces.”


Satellite images (seen below) taken after the air strike show damage to four large warehouses belonging to a pro-Iranian militia.

He added that the base, located near the Syrian city of Al Bukamal, was empty at the time of the attack, which he said “crossed a red line.”

At least 18 Iranian operatives were killed in the attack, according to foreign news reports. The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported that 18 Iranian militia fighters and Hezbollah terrorists were killed in the attack.
