Syria says Israeli airstrike on Golan Heights left at least 5 dead

Syrian officials say the victims were unarmed civilians and died after their car was hit. Tel Aviv claims it has targeted four Palestinian fighters. The airstrike follows more than a dozen Israeli air raids and shelling on Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights on Thursday. The Syrian army says the attacks left one of its soldiers dead and seven others wounded at a military post in the southern region of Quneitra. Tel Aviv says the attacks were in response to rocket fire from Syria. Israel seized 1200 square kilometers of the Golan from neighboring Syria in 1967

Israel Launches Second Round of Air Attacks on West Syria

The Israeli Air Force resumed airstrikes on Western Syria, targeting Brigade 68 Base in Khan Al-Sheih in Damascus province and Brigade 90 Base in the al-Quneitra province after a six hour halt in attacks that followed their multiple air raids over the Golan Heights.

The Brigade 68 Base has no heavy weaponry that can reach Israel’s borders and the soldiers inside its parameters have been under siege by the al-Qaeda-linked group of al-Nusra Front and their allies from Ajnad al-Sham and Jeish al-Islam.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Israeli aircrafts were identified as helicopters that crossed into the Syrian Golan Heights before midnight on Thursday night.

As of now, no casualties have confirmed by the Syrian Armed Forces; however, these recent airstrikes are believed to have been more intense that the previous round of attacks launched by the Israeli air force.

Senior Iranian MP Underscores Failure of US Military Plots in Syria

Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi emphasized that the US and its allies have failed in their plots to defeat Syria through military force.

Boroujerdi reiterated Tehran’s position on the fact that the Syrian crisis has no military solution, and criticized the US and its regional and European allies for favoring the military solution to the crisis in Syria and arming the terrorist groups active in the country.

He told al-Ahd news website that the US and its allies’ shift from a military solution to a political one indicated that “their military plots have failed”.

“Those in Syria, who are after a peaceful resolution, must respect the rules of democracy and give up the call for removal of President Bashar Al-Assad as he was elected by the Syrian people,” Boroujerdi said.

The Iranian top official further underscored that “any solution to this crisis must be completely a Syrian solution, and the talks must be held among the Syrian parties. The fate of this country should not be decided in Geneva or in any other places”.

Iran has always underlined the necessity for settling the crisis in Syria through peaceful solutions.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian announced earlier this month that Tehran would soon present an updated version of its plan to the UN to settle the crisis in Syria.

“Iran’s updated initiative on Syria will be presented to the UN secretary general,” Amir Abdollahian said.

Yet, he dismissed reports on the details of Iran’s updated plan as media speculations, and said, “The plan will be declared and presented to the UN secretary general after precise consultations between Tehran and Damascus.”

Also in a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid al-Muallem in Damascus last week, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined that the problems in Syria don’t have a military solution.

“We consider the solution to problems in Syria as political and don’t see any prospect for a military solution,” Zarif said.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that respecting Syrians’ sovereignty and self-determination through voting and non-interference of foreigners in the internal affairs of the people, specially the subject of leaderships of Syria, are issues to be decided by the Syrian people,” he added.

Muallem, for his part, described Iran’s achievements in nuclear talks with the world powers as highly important in promoting diplomacy and talks to settle the regional problems.
