Al-Monitor- After airstrikes against military bases in Syria on April 30, Iranian sources denied that any of its soldiers were killed in the attack. There is no evidence that the United States is involved, but the attack has further highlighted the tense relations between the two countries.

The New York Times reported that at least 16 people died in the attack on bases used by Iranians and allied groups.
The Syrian government confirmed that missiles were launched against bases near Hama and Aleppo. Immediately after the strikes, unconfirmed reports claimed that eight Iranians had been killed.
