Airwars assessment

At least one civilian was injured in alleged Israeli strikes on Ain al-Tinah on May 10, 2021.

According to Step News, “the Israeli army targeted a person near the border fence with the occupied Golan on the outskirts of the town of Ain al-Tina. The person is from the town of Hadar, and he was wounded as a result of being directly targeted by Israeli forces.”

Shaam News reported that Israeli forces ” targeted a house” and the strike resulted in one person being injured. A tweet from @ElmasDean identified him as being “seriously injured”.

@SAMSyria0 named the injured civilian as Al Sheikh Tahrir Mahmoud. An image posted along with this tweet included a picture with the man holding a gun and wearing a vest – however, all of the sources that identified the status of the man referred to him as a civilian.

Euphrates Post identified the “position of the Assad regime and Iranian militias” as being the target of the airstrikes and that “the Israeli bombing resulted in the injury of a civilian, who was transferred to Quneitra Hospital.”

All of the sources that reported on the strike identified Israel as being responsible.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
