The attack took place near Beit Jinn, in the countryside southwest of Damascus.
There has been no statement from the Israel Defense Forces, in accordance with standard Israeli policy.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization is generously funded, equipped and trained by Iran, as is the Iranian proxy in Lebanon, Hezbollah.
