Three senior members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards were killed in an air strike on the consular section of Iran’s embassy in Damascus, marking a significant escalation in hostilities. This attack is blamed on Israel and comes amid increased tensions between Iran and Israel. The strike is the fourth suspected Israeli attack on Tehran’s forces in Syria this year. Iran’s network of proxies in the region have engaged in exchanges of fire with Israel, leading to heightened fears of a broader regional conflict. Israel has long worried about the presence of Iranian forces and fighters from Hezbollah in Syria, fearing a new front against the Jewish state. The attack has led to further condemnation from Iranian and Syrian officials, with Iran vowing a response at an appropriate time and place. The strike comes after a series of suspected Israeli air strikes in Syria, signaling an escalation in hostilities. Iran’s withdrawal of senior officers from Syria has been seen as a move to de-escalate tensions with the US. However, the situation remains tense, with Israel and Iran on edge. The strike on the diplomatic mission is a serious escalation, prompting concerns of further conflict in the region.
