Syrian state media: Israeli missiles strike near Damascus

  • Report Several Iranians killed in IDF strike on Syrian base

As we've noted before, the BBC report was dubiously sourced to "a Western intelligence source" and the story was quickly utilized by Israeli leaders to ratchet up rhetoric in preparing its case before the global community for further attacks on the supposed Iranian targets.

Syrian state television has confirmed that Israeli warplanes struck a military base near the Syrian capital of Damascus overnight Friday. Iran has not commented on the incident.

Syrian air defenses intercepted at least two Israeli missiles fired at a government "military position" in Damascus Province, state media reported on December 2. The Israeli planes were said to have come from the direction of Lebanon. The extent of the damage is not clear yet, although the TV report spoke of "material losses" at the base.

This isn't entirely unusual within Israel, as the military censors often compel the media not to report stories.

The BBC reported last month that Iran was building a permanent military base near the town.

Israel has grown deeply alarmed by Iran's expanding clout during the conflict, and has warned it would act against any threat from its regional foe Tehran. Iran-backed Shiite militias, including Hezbollah, have helped Damascus regain control of swathes of the country.

Israel and Syria are still technically at war after Israel seized around 1,200 kilometers of land in the Golan Heights from Syria during the Six Day War of 1967. The report was based on intelligence from "Western security sources", the report said. According to the images, construction is at an advanced stage.
