Israel's deadly raids on Syria and US support for it

In less than a week since the last wave of Israeli strikes on Syria targeted positions in the southern outskirts of Damascus and killed three pro-Iran fighters, Israeli warplanes last week carried out intense airstrikes in eastern Syria killing at least 57 fighters and wounding dozens.

The overnight airstrikes were apparently targeting positions and arms depots of Iran-backed forces as the region is on high alert, according to a Syrian opposition war monitoring group.

An official from Syria’s state news agency SANA said: “The Israeli enemy carried out an aerial assault on the town of Deir el-Zour and the Boukamal region,” adding that “the results of the aggression are currently being verified.”

“This is the largest death toll from Israeli raids in Syria,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) chief Rami Abdul Rahman.
