At least 11 Iranians were among those killed in unprecedented Israeli strikes on on Thursday, a monitor said today.

“At least 27 pro-regime fighters were killed: six Syrian soldiers and 21 foreign fighters, including 11 Iranians,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, of the Britain-based for Human Rights.

That updates the monitor’s initial death toll of 23, which did not specify the number of Iranians. ( AFP )
