The "blatant assault" inflicted material losses at the site near Damascus, the network said.

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

The strike was likely conducted by the Israeli military and targeted some government military bases in al-Kiswah, located in the southwest outskirts of the Syrian capital, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

Some videos that emerged on social media are claiming to show the moment when the Israeli missiles were intercepted by Syrian Air Defense.

Meanwhile Times of Israel reported the incident quoting Arab media.


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.

A report from the BBC in September alleged that Iran had established a military base in Syria, south of the capital; while Iranian forces may not have an overwhelming presence in the country, numerous militias - including Lebanon's Hezbollah - that are aligned with the Syrian regime are bankrolled and armed by the Islamic Republic. 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.

A Sky News Arabic report stated some of the missiles were fired from within Lebanon.

Earlier on September 7, at least two Syrian soldiers were killed while Israeli jets targeted an army position in Hama province, a few days after Syrian army had successfully broke Daesh siege in Dayr al-Zawr.
