Syria’s official news agency SANA quoted a military source as saying that the Israeli missiles were fired at 10:16 pm, Sunday night, at targets in the vicinity of the Syrian capital Damascus.
The source said almost all of the missiles were successfully intercepted by the Syrian air defenses.
Israeli media claim the airstrike was a response to a recent attack on an Israeli-owned vessel in the Gulf of Oman, which Tel Aviv blames on Iran.
Israel frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those of the resistance movement Hezbollah which has played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against foreign-backed terrorists since 2011.
The Tel Aviv regime mostly keeps quiet about the attacks on Syrian territories which many view as knee-jerk reaction to the Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism in country.
Early last month, Israeli air-to-surface and surface-to-surface missiles were intercepted by the Syrian air defense systems over the country's southwestern province of Quneitra.
