Israeli missile strike targets Syrian capital

Damascus/UNI: An Israeli missile attack hit military sites in the vicinity of Syrian capital Damascus early Saturday, the latest in a spate of Israeli attacks against Syria, according to the national Syrian TV.

Multiple explosions were heard in Damascus after midnight in what appeared to be a hostile missile attack.

The state-owned TV later confirmed it was an Israeli missile attack on the vicinity of Damascus.

Meanwhile, the Syrian army said in a short statement that around 1:35 a.m. local time, the "Israeli enemy" conducted an aerial attack from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, targeting some military points in the vicinity of Damascus.

It added that the air defense brought down most missiles and the losses were limited to material damage.

In recent years, Israel has carried out hundreds of airstrikes against Iranian-linked targets in Syria, as well as convoys transporting weapons to Hezbollah, a Lebanese militia backed by Iran.

Israel sees Iran as its arch-enemy and will not allow Iran to establish a permanent base in Syria.

Israel and Syria have a border along the Golan Heights, which the Jewish state seized from Syria during the 1967 Middle East war and annexed in 1981.
