i24 News – The IDF shelled a pro-Iran militia headquarters in the village of Al-Hurriyah, in Syria’s Quneitra governate, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said early Wednesday. No one was reported injured.

A Syrian state media SANA correspondent, however, attributed a loud explosion reported in the village to a missile launched by the Israeli Air Force striking a school.

In September, Israeli strikes were blamed for killing pro-Iranian militia in Syria, although Israel does not usually comment on its alleged airstrikes in Syria. Jerusalem has said it will not tolerate pro-Iranian forces deploying in Syria.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Russian state media that Israel would have to return the Golan Heights, captured in the 1967 Six-Day War, before any peace deal is possible.
