Suspected Israeli Missiles Target Syrian Base

Reports: Syrian Army Intercepts Missiles Near Damascus

Syrian state television has confirmed that Israeli warplanes struck a military base near the Syrian capital of Damascus overnight Friday.

The Britain-based group, which monitors the war through a network of contacts in Syria, said the attack hit near al-Kiswa town south of the capital Damascus, causing loud explosions. Iran has not commented on the incident. The report added that "our defense forces destroyed two enemy targets".

According to Syria's state-run SANA news agency, pro-government forces managed to destroy two of the missiles in a response attack. The Israeli planes were said to have come from the direction of Lebanon.

However, other sources allege that strikes were aimed at an Iranian military said to be located near Kiswah.

Those three wins - plus a conference championship - would all be better than anything that current No. 5 Alabama has accomplished. Auburn and Georgia will collide in the SEC Championship Game, the first to be played in the new Mercedes-Benz Dome in Atlanta.

The extent of the damage is not yet clear although the TV report spoke of material losses at the base.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has often said that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a permanent presence in Syria and has reportedly sent a warning to this effect via a third party to Syrian President Bashar Assad, the Israeli daily reported. Iran-backed Shiite militias, including Hezbollah, have helped Damascus regain control of swathes of the country.

Indeed, BBC itself used ambiguous language in saying the satellite images "seem to show" construction activity at the site referenced by the intelligence source between January and October this year.
