Syrian media report Israeli attack near capital Damascus

Minister warns Israel could kill Assad if he lets Iran attack from Syria

The press service of the Israel defense forces said that the Iranian armed factions operating in Syria, in the night of Thursday, may 10, fired about 20 rockets at IDF positions on the Syrian-Israeli border.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has traveled to Moscow where he and President Vladimir Putin will discuss military coordination amid new strikes in Syria blamed on Israel.

He said they targeted intelligence, logistics, storage and vehicles as well as the origin of the rockets.

Lieberman said Israel hit "almost all the Iranian infrastructure in Syria".

It ignored Iran's role as the world's largest sponsor of state terror, its complicity in the killings of a half-million Syrians and its threats to destroy the state of Israel.

"As tension goes up in the US-Iran relationship, it's always bad for the US-Iraq relationship", said the US official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The announcement came minutes before US President Donald Trump declared he was withdrawing from the 2015 global nuclear deal with Iran, a move that has stirred concern about a possible regional flare-up.

In light of the development, the military ordered cities and towns in the Golan Heights area to open their bomb shelters.

Meanwhile at least 47 people, including six women and 13 children, have also been killed during fighting, the monitoring group said.

The latest tension came a day after Israel targeted a Syrian military site in the Kisweh area in the southwestern countryside of the capital Damascus. It also enabled Iran to retain its nuclear infrastructure and the ability to reactivate it in the near future.

Iranian forces moved into Syria after the outbreak of the Syrian civil war in 2011 to back the forces of President Bashar Assad. But Israel and Russian Federation have maintained close communications to prevent their air forces from coming into conflict.

"The role of history is very important -when such a murderous ideology appears, it is necessary to stand up to it in time". The Golan Heights, which borders Syria, is considered a high-threat location for military activity out of Syria.

Israel has warned it will not tolerate Tehran establishing itself militarily on its doorstep in Syria.

After targeting Iranian units in Syria in retaliation, an Israel F-16 was shot down by Syrian anti-aircraft fire in one of the conflict's most notable escalations. "They are determined to do it and we are determined to prevent it".
