29 Israeli airstrikes carried out in Syria in 2021, Syria monitor group says, killing 125 soldiers and militiamen.

Israel’s air force carried out nearly 30 airstrikes on Syria during 2021, a Syrian monitor group has claimed, in attacks which hit more than 70 targets. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a London-based anti-Assad group which has monitored the civil war in Syria as well as foreign interventions in the war-torn country, reported Tuesday that Israel has carried out a total of 29 airstrikes in Syria in 2021, the second most in a single year.

In 2020, Israel carried out 39 attacks, the most in a single year.

According to the SOHR report, Israel’s air force struck 71 targets across Syria in 2021, including 12 different targets in the Damascus area, six in the Homs district, five in Quneitra in the Golan Heights region, three in Latakia, two in Deir ez-Zor, two in Hama, two in As-Suwayda, and one in Allepo.

In total, 130 fatalities were reported in the 29 Israeli airstrikes in 2021, of which 125 were combatants, along with five civilians.
