The Syrian Human Rights Organization reported Saturday that at least 27 supporters of the Assad regime were killed in an Israeli strike in Syria on Thursday.

"The repeated attacks by the Zionist regime on Syrian territory were carried out under pretexts that were invented by themselves and are without foundation", said foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi, without offering further details.

In strikes near the capital on Wednesday, the Observatory said at least 15 were killed, including eight Iranians. "The new report is due to the death of wounded or missing persons whose deaths have been confirmed", Abdel Rahman said.

That brings to 42, including 19 Iranians, the total killed during the two days of strikes.

Israel said it struck dozens of Iranian targets inside Syria early on Thursday in response to a salvo of rockets allegedly fired by Iranian forces into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

"Already this week, the IRGC has fired rockets at Israeli citizens, and Iran's proxies in Yemen have launched a ballistic missile at Riyadh".

But Iran flatly denied the Israeli version of events, saying Israel's attacks were carried out on false "pretexts".

Another reason for the change is the fact that Iran is now isolated from the world in everything related to Syria, and the worldwide community's support for the Israeli airstrikes in the Arab country further stressed Iran's isolation.

Among the victims of air strikes of Israel supposedly 11 Iranians. "They will never abandon the USA for us", said Poormoslem, a housewife at the rally.


Israeli forces have been blamed for a series of recent strikes inside Syria that have killed Iranians, though it has not acknowledged those raids.

"We came here to pray to God after the victory against Iran" following the USA withdrawal from the nuclear deal, said Aryeh Stern, a rabbi from Jerusalem.

Iran says it is ready to restart its nuclear programme on an "industrial scale".

"I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal", Trump said Tuesday in a televised address from the White House.

All other signatories had sought to maintain the agreement.

The White House on Friday slammed Iran for its "reckless actions" that it warned pose a "severe threat" to stability in Middle East.

Russia, which is also an ally of Assad, said on Thursday that Syria had shot down more than half of the missiles fired at it overnight by Israel. The global community's silence encourages Israel's aggression.

The Syrian ambassador to China says Damascus will not "hesitate" to avenge Israeli attacks, stressing the nation's right to self-defense against any act of aggression.
