Military escalation | Israel targets military positions of regime forces and Iranian militias in Tartous

SOHR activists have monitored Israeli strikes on regime military positions, which hold Iranian militias in southern Tartous countryside, where several missiles hit the vicinity of Abo Afsa village, the Air-Defence base and a radar in the region, where several loud explosions were heard in these positions, while ambulances rushed to the sites to save the wounded people and take the killed ones. However, the number of casualties hasn’t been identified yet.
