Israel strikes Syrian military base

The Arabic-language al-Masdar news agency, citing an unnamed source, said the Syrian military's anti-aircraft missiles were fired from the Mezzeh Airbase in rural Damascus in the early hours of Saturday. The extent of the damage is not clear yet, although the TV report spoke of "material losses" at the base. 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.

Five missiles were reportedly fired by Israel one of which destroyed the arms depot situated near El-Kiswah and two of which were intercepted by the Syrian government "military position", according to SANA, Syria's state-run news agency. So far, however, the target of this reported attack is still unclear.

At least two Israeli missiles have been intercepted outside the Syrian capital, state media said on Saturday, although some military targets suffered damage from the strikes. In it, he addresses Iran's attempts to entrench itself in Syria and says Israel will not allow it.

Some media outlets affiliated with the Assad regime and Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah initially reported that Israeli warplanes targeted an ammunition bunker belonging to the Syrian Army. The Israeli military has not confirmed the strike.

The BBC reported last month that Iran was building a permanent military base near the town.

Previously, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that it would not allow Iran to establish any military presence in Syria.
