BEIRUT (AP) - A Syrian war monitor says a wave of Israeli strikes on suspected military positions in Syria this week killed 42 people. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Saturday the new death toll from attacks early Thursday was 27, including at least 11 Iranians and six Syrian soldiers. In strikes near the capital on Wednesday, the Observatory said at least 15 were killed, including eight Iranians. That brings to 42, including 19 Iranians, the total killed during the two days of strikes. Syria blamed Israel for the Wednesday strikes that hit near the capital.
