  • Iranians killed in 'Israeli strike' in Syria, Arabic Media reports

The "blatant assault" led to material losses at the site in the countryside around the capital, it said, Al Jazeera reported.

This follows a row of seemingly random attacks on Syria by the hostile Israeli Defense Forces, which often target positions near the Golan Heights but have since expanded their operating territory to attack more high-value targets.

The surface-to-surface missiles were aimed at "military targets" to the south-west of Damascus, although Syrian air defences managed to down some of the projectiles, SANA news agency claimed.

The worst hurricanes were Harvey , Irma and Maria, each of which reached Category-5 strength and made landfall on US territory. Also outside of the continental US, Hurricane Maria ravaged the island of Puerto Rico as a Category 5 storm.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the missiles, presumably Israeli, struck positions of the Syrian government and its allies southwest of Damascus overnight.

An Israeli military spokesperson declined to comment.

Earlier, a senior Israeli official vowed to bomb Syrian President's palace if Hezbollah continued to expand its sway over 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.

Only last week Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman shunned Netanyahu's fears and stated that, "there is no physical Iranian military presence at the moment in Syria". The incident reportedly occurred Friday night, with IDF planes attacking the Iranian base at al-Kiswah, south of Damascus. Israel has long justified its attacks inside Syria by claiming to be acting against Hezbollah and Iranian facilities and arms depots. Sky News said the strike had been conducted with air-to-surface missiles from Lebanese airspace.

It says that Israeli fighter jet was flying at a low altitude over Lebanon's Baalbek region near Syrian border when Syrian missiles were launched.
