JERUSALEM: Israel’s military said it carried out strikes on Iranian targets in Syria early Monday after it intercepted a rocket fired from Syrian territory hours before.
It said in a statement it was “currently striking” the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force in Syria and warned Syria’s military against “attempting to harm Israeli territory or forces”.
It provided no further details on the raids.
Israel’s military said on Sunday its air defence systems intercepted a rocket fired from Syria, after Damascus accused Israel of carrying out air raids in the country’s south.
As Israel announced its strikes early Monday, Syrian state news agency SANA said its country’s air-defence systems had targeted “enemy” fire.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor reported Israeli missile strikes in the area of the Damascus airport and areas around the capital. - Agencies
