Overnight Syria Strike Kills 3 Hizbullah-Linked Fighters
[AnNahar] Three Iran-backed paramilitary fighters were killed in an overnight Israeli strike that hit Syria's southern province of Quneitra, a war monitor said Wednesday.

The three were from the Syrian Resistance® to Liberate the Golan, a group linked to Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
's Hizbullah
...Party of God, a Leb militia inspired, founded, funded and directed by Iran. Hizbullah refers to itself as The Resistance and purports to defend Leb against Israel, with whom it has started and lost one disastrous war to date, though it did claim victory...
, said Rami Abdul Rahman, head of the Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The group was formed more than six years ago to launch attacks in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

At least one of the killed fighters was Syrian, the Observatory said, but the nationalities of the other two remained unclear.

The official SANA news agency reported the Israeli strike on a "school" in Quneitra's northern countryside shortly after midnight, but did not mention casualties.

Abdul Rahman said that Iran-backed fighters were staying inside the facility the night of the attack.
