Toll rises to 16 in Israeli strike on Iran's Damascus consulate: monitor


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said Wednesday that the death toll from an Israeli air strike on Iran's consulate in Damascus this week had risen to 16. 

The raid destroyed the consular annex of the embassy, with Iran's Revolutionary Guard saying two of its high-level commanders were among seven of its personnel killed. 

"The death toll from Israeli strikes on the Iranian embassy annex has risen to 16," said Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the British-based Observatory, which had previously given a toll of 14.
