“Two areas hosting military positions of iranian troops and the lebanese group Hezbollah have been taken to target,” said Friday night the Observatory syrian human rights (OSDH).

The targets were in ” the area of Kesswa and in the precincts of the international airport of Damascus “, according to the director of the OSDH, Rami Abdel Rahmane.
