January 28, 2019

TEHRAN – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Monday rejected the Israeli prime minister’s claims of attacking Iranian bases in Syria as completely “baseless” and “false”.

Quoting a Syrian opposition group, the Jerusalem Post reported on January 22 that 12 IRGC soldiers were killed in an Israeli airstrikes on Damascus's international airport. 

“If the Guards had had 12 casualties, there should have been funerals in Iran for them over the past 20 days,” IRGC spokesman Ramazan Sharif said, Mehr reported.

Earlier this month, Netanyahu claimed Israeli forces had attacked Iranian weapons warehouses in Syria.

“We worked with impressive success to block Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria,” he said, claiming that the Israeli military had struck Iranian and Hezbollah targets “hundreds of times”.
