Iran’s Revolutionary Guards announce that two of its officers were killed in Syria.

The announcement comes after an air strike in Syria that was blamed on Israel.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps says Mohammad Ali Atai Shoorcheh and Panah Taghizadeh were “martyred” while on an advisory mission to Syria, blaming the “Zionists” for their death.

Israeli airstrikes hit several points on the outskirts of Damascus overnight, Syrian state media reported, resulting in some damage.

State news agency SANA, citing an unnamed military official, says the strikes came from the direction of the Golan Heights and that Syrian air defenses shot most of the missiles down. The strikes resulted in only “material losses,” the statement says.

There was no comment from Israel.
