Syrian state TV reports that the attack caused damage but two missiles were intercepted.
However, a spokeswoman for the Israel Defense Forces refused to comment on the situation when asked by Sputnik.
Israel acknowledged it carried out numerous aerial operations in the war-torn country to prevent shipments of Iranian missiles from reaching the Hezbollah militant group, a sworn enemy of the Jewish State. The Syrian press said that capital's anti-aircraft defense systems intercepted three of rockets before y hit a quartering in Al Kiswa, 14 kilometres south of capital.More news: Prosecutors seek to seize assets of 'Pharma Bro' Shkreli

Twelve Iranian military personnel were killed in an alleged Israeli air strike on an Iranian base in Syria Friday night, Arabic media reported Saturday. 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. The images show an initial two dozen large, low-rise buildings, and later in the year additional buildings which were added to the site. "Arms convoys in particular have been singled out by the Israeli air force".
Previously, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that it would not allow Iran to establish any military presence in Syria. The Islamic Republic aspires to count, like Russian Federation, with its own air and naval bases in Syria and to be able to exploit its uranium mines. Then Israel used that claim to attack Syria, after which the BBC in circular fashion justified the attack based on its own original dubious "claim".
