At least 40 killed in deadliest raids on Syria since 2018

A war monitor on January 13 said that at least nine Syrian soldiers and 31 allied fighters were killed in the deadliest night raids since 2018, targeting arms depots and military positions in eastern Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, “The Israeli air force carried out more than 18 strikes against multiple targets in an area stretching from the eastern town of Deir Ezzor to the Iraqi border,” adding, “The raids killed nine Syrian soldiers and 31 foreign militia fighters whose nationalities were not immediately known.” The Britain-based monitoring group said that the paramilitaries belonging to the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and the Fatimid Brigade made up of pro-Iranian Afghan fighters operate in the area.
