CAIRO/AMMAN (Reuters) – Israel struck targets in southern Syria on Wednesday in the third such attack in nearly 10 days, state TV reported as military defectors said the missiles targeted Iranian revolutionary guard bases.
A military spokesman said missiles flying over the Golan Heights targeted several locations and air defences downed several missiles.
Live coverage showed a multi-storey building on fire. “Our air defences responded to an aerial Israeli aggression … on some targets in the southern region,” state media quoted a Syrian army spokesman as saying.
Two military defectors said the strikes hit the Kisswa area in the southern outskirts of the capital Damascus and military bases used by Lebanon’s pro-Iranian Hezbollah group.
