Missile strikes in Syria killed at least 16 people late Sunday. The strike hit Iranian military bases causing what felt like an earthquake. The state news in Syria confirmed the strikes Sunday, but a monitoring group announced the death toll Monday. Most of the dead were Iranians according to the regional alliance of Iran, Syria and the group Hezbollah. No one has claimed responsibility for the strikes yet. Reports suggest the strikes are attributed to Israel. If so, this would be an escalation in the shadow war between Israel and Iran. The Israeli military has not confirmed or denied its involvement in the strikes on Sunday.
