SANA agency reported that launches were carried out by aircraft from the Golan Heights. Syrian state-owned channel Ikhbariya notes that the country's air defence reflected an “enemy attack." “Several rockets were shot down south of Damascus,” a television channel reported.

The Israeli defence army said that they attacked dozens of targets in Syria, reports the Israeli publication Haaretz.

“The attack was carried out in response to Iranian forces launching rockets from Syria towards Israel, whose aim was to strike at Israeli territory,” the newspaper quoted the army as saying.

About half of the targets attacked belonged to Iranian forces. One of them is the building near the airport in Damascus, where, allegedly, the headquarters of the Quds is located - the special forces military unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). It is noted that Israeli forces intentionally did not begin to destroy it completely.

The day before, the Israeli Defense Forces press service reported on Twitter that Israeli air defence systems intercepted four missile shells launched along the Golan Heights in the northern part of the country. According to some reports, the missiles were fired from Syria, but they were all intercepted.

It is reported that a few hours earlier in the Golan Heights zone an air-raid siren went off.

Israel periodically attacks objects located in Syria, including in the metropolitan area, explaining this by the desire to stop attacks from pro-Iranian forces from the SAR. Another such attack occurred in late August. Then Israel attacked the facilities of the Iranian forces located southeast of Damascus, RIA Novosti reported with reference to the army press service.

The Israeli Air Force attacked Iran’s Al-Quds forces and Shiite forces in Syrian Aqrab.

These movements, Tel Aviv reported, were planning an attack on Israeli targets from Syria. "The failed attack included plans to launch several armed drones for use against Israeli targets," the agency said.

Israeli army fighters hit several terrorist targets in Syria, the military said. According to them, in this way they prevented an attack on Israel from Iran with the help of drones.

As stated in Tel Aviv, there were people at the attacked sites. They did not rule out the possibility of a loss among Iranian forces. “Losses are likely. We know that the personnel were there, ”said Jonathan Konricus, spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces.

According to local media, the victims of the Israeli Air Force raid were three Hezbollah fighters and one Iranian soldier. At the same time, Iran claims that its facilities in Syria were not hit as a result of the Israeli attack. Mohsen Rezai, secretary of the Council on the appropriateness of Iran’s decisions, insists that the actions of Israel and the United States in Syria and Iraq are contrary to international standards.

Shortly before this, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in an interview with local media, said that he had ordered the military to do everything necessary to counter the Iranian threat.

He noted that he gave the security forces freedom of action in order to foil Iran’s conspiracies against Israel.

“Iran is a state that has vowed to destroy Israel,” Netanyahu is convinced. In addition, he said that Tehran is trying to establish bases against Israel in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
