5 Killed, 15 Wounded in Israeli Strike on Damascus Residential Area

Syria’s state-run news agency SANA reported on Sunday that five people were killed and 15 others wounded in an Israeli strike on a residential area in Damascus.

The strike reportedly targeted the area of al-Keswa, located in the southern suburbs of the Syrian capital.

The Israeli military has yet to comment on the incident. It has, however, carried out numerous air strikes in Syria in recent years, mainly targeting Iranian military bases and weapons shipments destined for the Lebanese Hezbollah group.

The Syrian government has condemned the strikes, saying they violate international law.

The latest strike comes as tensions between Israel and Iran remain high. The two countries have been locked in a proxy war in Syria since the outbreak of the civil war in 2011.

The United Nations has called for an end to the violence and for all sides to work towards a political solution to the conflict.
