The media in Syria reported today (Monday) explosions that were heard in the Shiite quarter in the southeast of Damascus, which they claim is an Israeli attack. The Lebanese "Al Mayadeen" network reported that Seyyed Rachi Mousavi, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in Syria, was killed in the attack - and Iran confirmed shortly after that "a senior advisor to the Revolutionary Guards was killed in an Israeli attack."

Mousavi was a close associate of the former commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, and served as the commander of the Iranian forces in Syria. He was also responsible for the transfer of ammunition from Iran through Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon. According to the Iranian report, Mousavi was killed in an explosion that occurred as a result of an airstrike in his home.

The Kol HaBira radio station, which is affiliated with the Syrian opposition, claims that "the explosion that occurred in Damascus is the result of an Israeli attack against one of the farms near Abu Taleb Street. According to preliminary information, there are casualties and destruction at the site."

At the same time, it was claimed that two weapons depots of Hezbollah and the Iranian militias in the area of ​​Sayyidah Zaynab were attacked by Israel. According to the Syrian Center for the Monitoring of Human Rights, these areas are located near the electronic warfare administration of the Syrian regime. It was also claimed that there were reports of deaths on the spot, when ambulances were heard in the area after the attack.
