Israeli aircraft reportedly attack Iranian military base near Damascus

Syrians burry the victims of a reported air strike in the rebel-held besieged town of Arbin in the Eastern Ghouta region on the outskirts of Damascus

The "blatant assault" inflicted material losses at the site near Damascus, the network said. But other media outlets reported that the target was a military base that Iran is building in the area, 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the Israeli border, and that loud explosions were heard after the attack. The Israeli attack, the report said, caused damage to the base.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the missile attack was likely carried out by the Israeli military and targeted several government military bases in Al Kiswah on the southwest outskirts of Damascus.

Two missiles were intercepted in response.

Meanwhile Times of Israel reported the incident quoting Arab media.




Earlier this year, a senior Israeli official vowed that Israel would bomb Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's palace in Damascus if Hezbollah continued to expand its sway over the war-torn country.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned about Iran's plan to establish a permanent military presence in Syria, and said that "Israel will not let that happen".

Syrian state television has confirmed that Israeli warplanes struck a military base near the Syrian capital of Damascus overnight Friday.

The pro-Syrian regime Al-Masdar News said the IAF fired several missiles at an ammunition storage site belonging to what it said was the "1st Division". According to the reports, Syrian forces fired back at the Israeli forces.
