The target of the attack was depots of ground-to-ground missiles belonging to the Iranian militiamen, the report said.

Missile attacks targeted Syrian and Iranian military positions in two Syrian provinces late Sunday, killing at least 26 people, a monitoring group said.

Seven Iranian soldiers were among 14 military personnel killed in that attack.

The alleged attacks were reported by Syria's Sana news agency on Sunday evening. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to journalists. "If they are Iranians, it will be added to the unfinished business they have with us, and then the month of May will be very volatile", he said on Army Radio.

More missile fire was reported north of the Aleppo airport.

A U.S. military source denied to Israel's Hadashot news that an American coalition was behind the attack. The White House explained that both leaders spoke about threats y are planning on Middle East, and in particular on Iranian military expansion in region.

A day earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ratcheted up the Trump administration's rhetoric against Iran and offered warm support to Israel and Saudi Arabia in their standoff with Tehran. After the meeting Pompeo said that the US "remains deeply concerned about Iran's unsafe escalation of threats toward Israel and the region". Netanyahu had received a few hours before in Tel Aviv new U.S. secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, who made his first visit to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Jordan. Moreover, Iran would be fighting far from its territory, in an area where Israel has shown it controls the skies. Located near Hama, it was also widely known as a recruitment center for Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias who fight alongside President Bashar Assad's force. Tehran has vowed to retaliate for the T4 attack. Pro-Assad media outlets and Hezbollah have accused Israel of carrying out the airstrikes.

"Syria is being exposed to a new aggression with some military bases in rural Hama and Aleppo hit with enemy rockets", an army source was quoted as saying without elaborating. The Observatory said four Syrians were also among casualties. The human rights monitor reportedly said that Israel is "probably" responsible.
