MESOPOTAMIA NEWS LATEST : Chief of Iranian Quds Force Reacts to Israeli Airstrikes in Syria

Basnews English 26/08/2019 – 11:57 ERBIL — Commander of the Quds force, a branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) responsible for cross-border operations, called the recent Israeli strikes against the Iranian positions in Syria as “insane”.

Israel carried out multiple airstrikes last week near Damascus, targeting the positions allegedly belonging to the Iranian forces. It said later that the Iranian soldiers were planning to launch “killer drones” into northern Israel.

“These insane operations are absolutely last struggles of the Zionist Regime” Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian commander wrote on Twitter.

It also came after two Israeli drones crashed near Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, on Sunday, 25 August. One of them reportedly damaged the Hezbollah media centre in the Dahyeh suburbs of the city.
