Israeli air strikes in Syria overnight killed at least eight fighters operating in pro-Iran militias, a war monitoring group said Wednesday.

The strikes near the capital Damascus targeted an arms depot and a position held by Iranian forces and their Lebanese ally Hezbollah, but the nationalities of the dead fighters was not immediately know, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
