A rocket strike on Syria earlier this week hit a gathering of Iranian officials, according to a report in Reuters.

The strike, which Damascus blamed on Israel, was said to kill five people and wound 15 others.

According to Reuters, the site targeted was an installation where a group of Syrian and Iranian experts were meeting to discuss drone manufacturing. A source quoted by the news agency says that an Iranian official was killed, although he was not high-ranking.
