LONDON (Reuters) - Two Iranians were killed in an air strike on a Syrian air base on Sunday, Iran’s Fars news agency said.

The semi-official Fars news said on Monday that "two defenders of the shrine, Seyed Ammar Mousavi and Akbar Zavar Jannati" were killed in the air strike "carried out by the Zionist regime's fighter jets."

Iran calls its fighters in Syria the defenders of the shrine as it says the forces are there to protect the Zeinab Shrine, a Shi’ite holy site near Damascus.
