BEIRUT: Syrian rebels said three Iranian captives were killed Monday during an air attack in Damascus province by government forces, and threatened to kill the remaining Iranians in their custody unless the army stopped its attack.
“They were killed when the aircraft attacked. One of the houses they were in collapsed over their heads,” rebel spokesman Moutassam al-Ahmad told Reuters. “We will kill the rest if the army does not stop its assault. They have one hour.”
Ahmad said that a number of rebels were also killed in the attack. “Our losses are bigger than theirs.”
