  • СМИ в Сирии погибли более двух десятков иностранных бойцов

"Six Syrian soldiers and 21 foreign fighters, including 11 Iranians" were among the dead, said the group's director, Rami Abdel Rahman.

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

"The new report is due to the death of wounded or missing persons whose deaths have been confirmed", Abdel Rahman said.

The Israeli military stated that the Israeli Air Force strikes severely weakened Iran's military infrastructure in Syria, crowning the air raids "a great success".

Israel said it destroyed almost all of Iran's military infrastructure in the strikes which were launched in response to 20 missiles fired at 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", it said, referring to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

But Iran flatly denied the Israeli version of events, saying Israel's attacks were carried out on false "pretexts". The annexation has not be recognised by the global community.

"They need to remember the saying that if it rains on us, it'll storm on them".

Iran's foreign minister will embark on a diplomatic tour to try to salvage the nuclear deal amid high tensions following the United States withdrawal and global fears over reports of unprecedented clashes with Israel in Syria.

Shahd Hamza, 20, was among those who came to support Hussein in court, after hearing about her case in a group chat on WhatsApp. The judgment has raised concerns over the justice system in Sudan, especially when it comes to marital rape.

Israel has long warned it will not accept Iran entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria, where Tehran has deployed forces to support the government of President Bashar al-Assad in the country's seven-year civil war.

But Thursday's air raid came amid heightened tension in the regime after President Trump announced on Tuesday that the USA would withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

It reiterated that Iran was preparing to resume "industrial-scale" uranium enrichment "without any restrictions" unless Europe provided solid guarantees that it could maintain trade ties despite renewed U.S. sanctions.

"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 defense minister welcomed Iran's statement that it did not want an escalation between the two countries and stressed that Israel was also not looking for more confrontation with anyone.

The sortie came after Iran fired 20 missiles toward Israel just after midnight on Thursday morning, the IDF said, forcing residents of the north into bomb shelters.

Moustapha's remarks came one day after Israeli jets attacked dozens of targets inside Syria in what was said to be the most extensive strike in the Arab country in decades.

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.
