An alleged Israeli airstrike Sunday near Syria’s Quneitra border crossing with Israel that killed six members of Hezbollah also killed six Iranians, a source close to the Lebanese Shiite terror group told AFP on Monday.

“The Israeli strike killed six Iranian soldiers, including commanders, as well as the six members of Hezbollah. They were all in a convoy of three cars,” the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Iranian general Mohammad Ali Allahdadi was among those killed in the strike, Iranian officials said.

“General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi and a number of fighters and Islamic Resistance (Hezbollah) forces were attacked by the Zionist regime’s helicopters,” said a statement on the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) website.

  • Just a thought

    As I posted on another website to this topic…
    Another Israeli “crime” against inhumanity. 🙂

    • It should read: Another Israeli strike for sanity.

    So Iran has military personnel meeting with terrorist groups in syria… good to know. Which other terror groups besides Hammas have forces in Syria?

    • Norman_In_New_York

      This isn’t Hamas but Hezbollah, which is Shiite. Ever since it intervened in Syria to prop up Assad, it has been having a hard time dealing with Sunni forces. What they were hoping to gain by provoking Israel apparently did not work out.

        Your right I miss read it as hamas not Hezbollah.

          Tomato, Tomatoe. Who really cares just as long as the ends are the same.

    The Israeli air defense is awesome. So glad they are getting in some good practice strikes and with just a couple of helicopters.

    Usually Iranian generals are eager to fight the Zionist Entity down to the last Lebanese/Palestinian/Syrian. Nice to see one get his just desserts for a change.

  • WalterBannon

    Israel needs to step it up… six at a time will get nowhere. I suggest using some of their nukes

  • hitachi

    so how many of those hizbullah and iranians were described by msm as either journalists or youths?

    • Norman_In_New_York

      They are usually described as militants and activists.

      • Clausewitz

        Don’t forget “Freedom Fighters””. Irony is best served cold.

    Call em what you will, they are still muslim murderers.
