The death toll from Israeli aerial attacks on areas south of Syria's capital Damascus and the south west of the country has risen to at least 11, a monitoring group said Tuesday.

The death toll from Israeli aerial attacks on areas south of Syria‘s capital Damascus and the south west of the country has risen to at least 11, a monitoring group said Tuesday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said seven pro-Iranian militias of non-Syrian nationalities had died, as well as three pro-government soldiers including an officer in the air force.

The watchdog said one woman was killed by shrapnel at her house in the village of Al-Hejana, south of Damascus.

The strikes also caused massive material damage.

The state-run Syrian News Agency (SANA) had reported late Monday that Israel launched air strikes targeting areas south of Damascus, killing two people and wounding seven soldiers.

The strikes target pro-government troops and pro-Iranian militias in Kiswa, the vicinity of Damascus International Airport and the Air Defense Brigade in Al-Hejana, south of the capital Damascus, as well as parts of Daraa in south-western Syria.

Previous Israeli strikes against targets in Syria were allegedly aimed at preventing Iran, one of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s main allies, from building up its military influence in the region.
