There was no instant assertion from Israel on Sunday’s alleged assassination.
The Islamic Jihad mentioned in an announcement Aswad’s household had been displaced from the town of Haifa in 1948 and settled within the refugee camps in Syria, the place he joined the group as a younger man.
In 2019, Israeli warplanes fired missiles on the residence of Akram al-Ajouri, a member of Islamic Jihad’s management residing in exile. Ajouri was not harmed, however his son was reportedly killed within the assault.
Final month, airstrikes on residential areas in Damascus that Syrian officers mentioned killed no less than 5 individuals have been attributed to Israel. An Islamic Jihad official warned Israel in an announcement that there can be “a decisive response directly to any assassination try (on) the leaders of the resistance.”
Israel has carried out a whole lot of strikes on targets inside government-controlled elements of Syria lately, together with assaults on the Damascus and Aleppo airports, but it surely hardly ever acknowledges or discusses the operations.
