Syria: Israeli missiles hit military base near Damascas

Report Several Iranians killed in IDF strike on Syrian base

The Syrian state media and Sky News Arabia reported Syria's air-defense system also intercepted two Israeli surface-to-surface missiles.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor of the war, said the missiles, presumably Israeli, targeted "positions of the Syrian regime and its allies" southwest of Damascus. A recent report in a Kuwaiti newspaper included a statement from Israeli officials who said that the government had vowed to destroy any Iranian positions within 40 km of the northern border with Syria.

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said the missile strike targeted a military base near Kesweh, south of Damascus.

Two missiles were intercepted in response.

The incident comes amid escalating tensions between Israel and Syria. Details of the attack are still unclear, as the first reports were in the Israeli media, and within a matter of hours were removed.

The military would not say where the shooter was, saying only that the incident was being investigated. They were later rescued by Israeli security forces.

The Israeli entity is closely linked to the terrorist organizations in Syria.

Israel has long warned that Iran is trying to establish a permanent presence in Syria.

The Syrian conflict began in March 2011 against the Assad government, but it morphed into a civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people.

The Israeli aggression caused material damage to the site, according to the sources.

Quoting Arabic language al-Masdar news agency, citing unanimous source, said the Syrian military's anti-aircraft missiles were fired from Mezzeh Airbase in rural Damascus in the early hours of Saturday.
