According to Doctors at the military Tishreen Hospital, more than 100 Syrian soldiers were killed in Sunday's strike in Damascus, and many more injured, with death tolls likely to surpass 120, reported the British Telegraph on Tuesday.

"At least 15 [Republican Guard] soldiers were killed, and dozens more are missing" Rami Abdel Rahman, of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights watchdog, told the Telegraph.

"These three sites (targeted) would usually have around 150 soldiers in them, but it's not clear if they were all there at the time of the strikes," he added.
