Syrian air defenses down two Israeli missiles close to Damascus

April FrancisMay 11, 2018

"I want to hope that we will be able not only to discuss with you, but also to look for solutions that would soften the situation", said Putin. A preliminary assessment found there was minimal damage, he added.

Israel pinned the rocket fire on the Quds Force, an elite, militant division of Iran's Revolutionary Guard that answers directly to Maj.

Tensions between Iran and Israel rose dramatically in the lead-up to Mr Trump's decision on the nuclear deal.

Tehran's growing clout in Syria alarms arch foe Israel, which has struck what it describes as Iranian deployments or arms transfers to Hizbollah scores of times during the conflict. "This event is not over".

In comments to his national Security Council, Putin expressed his "deep concern" over Trump's decision announced on Tuesday and stressed the importance of the accord with Iran.

Syria's state news agency said early Thursday that Syrian air defenses had intercepted "hostile Israeli missiles", and Syrian media later said the missiles were fired over southwestern Damascus. It said shells fired from Israel hit southern Syria's Quneitra province, adjacent to the Golan Heights.

On May 7th, the day before Trump's announcement, Israeli Multiple-Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) were photographed, reportedly in the Golan Heights. There was no immediate official confirmation by the Syrian government on the new round of attacks.

Netanyahu's speech railing against the nuclear deal to the U.S. Congress in 2015 angered former U.S. president Barack Obama, who negotiated the agreement.

A barrage of rockets was sacked into Israel's Golan Heights on Wednesday evening, according to the Israeli Defense Force which says that Quds force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard is behind the attack.

According to the Associated Press, "the military said it is prepared for "various scenarios" and warned 'any aggression against Israel will be met with a severe response'".

Syrian air defences that fired on Israeli forces were also targeted, he said.

It reported no casualties, but a monitoring group says at least nine pro-government forces had been killed, including Iranian-backed fighters.

CCTV video footage taken at al-Kiswah showed the impact of the IAF strike which included secondary explosions, an indication Israel had again hit an explosives, missile or ammunition depot at the base.

The late-night incident followed a surge in tensions between Israel and Syria, where Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah forces have been helping Damascus beat back a 7-year-old rebellion. Iran has vowed revenge for the attacks.

Meantime, President Donald Trump's announcement Tuesday that the US would withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran has triggered uncertainty and threatened to spark more unrest in the Middle East.
