Report: Strike killed elite troops, hit chemical facility
New York Times quotes high-ranking Syrian military official as saying alleged Israeli strike in Damascus killed dozens of soldiers, hit Republican Guard bases, long-range missiles storehouses
WASHINGTON – A day after the latest alleged Israeli strike in Damascus, the New York Times revealed additional details on the targets of the attack.
The attack struck several critical military facilities in some of Syria’s most tightly secured and strategic areas, killing dozens of elite troops stationed near the presidential palace, a high-ranking Syrian military official told the newspaper.
Rebels, opposition activists and residents said the strikes hit bases of the elite Republican Guard and storehouses of long-range missiles, in addition to a military research center that American officials have called the country’s main chemical weapons facility, the report said.
