Ten killed in Israeli strike on Syrian military targets

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Ten people were killed in when the Israel Air Force struck several military targets in neighboring Syria early on Monday, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, according to the Haaretz news agency.

The Israeli strikes were made in response to Sunday's cross-border missile shooting, which killed an Israeli teenager and wounded his father and two other civilians.

The strikes were carried out shortly after midnight. Nine targets belonging to the Syrian military were hit, among them command centers, according to a statement released by the Israel Defense Forces Spokesman.

Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the British-based organization, told DPA that the strikes destroyed two tanks and seven army posts. Earlier Monday, a Syrian opposition operative said that the Israeli strikes caused severe damage to Syrian army tanks, armored personnel carriers and a command center.

The Syrian government did not immediately issue a response to the attack.

An IDF officer told Haaretz the strikes were carried out using both Tamuz guided missiles and IAF jets.
