Strike on Syria airbase kills 3 Iran-backed fighters
A Tuesday (January 14th) missile strike on a Syrian airbase has killed at least three Iran-backed militiamen, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Four missiles hit the T4 base in Homs province, north of Damascus, at around 10 p.m. Tuesday, Syrian state media said, reporting that the strike caused damage but no casualties.
According to the Observatory, however, at least three Iran-backed militiamen were killed.
It said the strike damaged an Iranian arms depot, two military vehicles and a building still under construction.
Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said the dead were all non-Syrians, noting that both Iranian forces and Russian military advisers were stationed at the base.
