Israeli warplanes said to kill 4 in Syrian Golan

NGO says two security guards and two women dead in three strikes in Quneitra area; other targets also hit

BEIRUT — Israeli warplanes struck three administrative and military targets in Syria’s Golan at dawn on Tuesday, killing two security guards and two women, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Israeli planes “launched rockets into southern Syria’s Quneitra province at around 1:15 a.m. Rockets hit Base 90 — a Syrian military airbase — and regime bastion Baath City. Four people were killed,” the monitor said.

The strike that killed the women and guards targeted an area where the residence of Quneitra province’s governor is located, said the Observatory.

“A second strike on another area of Baath City also caused casualties, but we have been unable to confirm the number so far,” Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

Base 90 was also hit, he added.

The air raids came after a rocket fired from Syria hit the Israel side of the Golan Heights, falling on open ground and causing no casualties.
