The statement read, “The evil and criminal Zionist regime invaded the Syrian capital Damascus, and during the airstrike by the aggressor and usurper regime, a number of Syrian forces and four Iranian military advisers were martyred.”
According to earlier reports, an Israeli missile strike targeted a four-storey building in the al-Mezzah area in Damascus and completely demolished the building.
The strike caused a large plume of smoke to billow into the sky. The area was cordoned off with ambulances and rescue teams.
The neighborhood also houses UN headquarters, embassies and restaurants.
