Israeli missiles hit military position near Damascus

Reports: Syrian Army Intercepts Missiles Near Damascus Suspected Israeli Missiles Target Syrian Base
Howard Terry | 03 December, 2017, 00:50

In a fresh escalation in the Middle East, Israel has fired missiles at a military position near Damascus over last night while Syria's air defence system has claimed of thwarting some of the attacks.

Syrian state TV reports that the attack caused damage but two missiles were intercepted.

Earlier in the day, pro-government media outlets had said the air defences were triggered by a missile attack, while people in the capital heard explosions in different areas.

Tehran has helped prop up the Syrian regime with militias and officers.

According to Sky, the attack was carried out from Lebanese airspace; conflicting reports claimed Israel Air Force aircraft fired from within the Israeli Golan Heights.

There was no immediate official Israeli comment.

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".

"We will not allow that regime to entrench itself militarily in Syria, as it seeks to do, for the expressed objective of eradicating our state", Netanyahu said.

On several occasions, the Syrian army has also confiscated Israeli-made arms and military equipment from terrorists fighting the government forces.

Indeed, BBC itself used ambiguous language in saying the satellite images "seem to show" construction activity at the site referenced by the intelligence source between January and October this year.
