Arab media: 12 Iranians killed in 'Israeli strike' in Syria

Israeli aircraft on Friday fired several missiles at Iranian military base outside the Syrian capital of Damascus, Sky News Arabia and other news media reported.

An Israeli military spokeswoman declined to comment on reports of the attack.

Aljazeera reports that the Israeli raid was targeted at government military sites and Hezbollah positions and that the sound of large explosions caused by the raid was heard in the capital and surrounding areas.

A video was posted on twitter, showing the moment air deference intercepted a missile.

In September, Israeli warplanes hit a military position near the Mediterranean coast in western Syria, killing two soldiers and causing material damage.

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

Earlier this year, a senior Israeli official vowed that Israel would bomb Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's palace in Damascus if Hezbollah continued to expand its sway over the war-torn country.

The pro-Syrian regime Al-Masdar News said the IAF fired several missiles at an ammunition storage site belonging to what it said was the "1st Division".

In his first public statement after Shabbat following an Israeli air strike on an Iranian military base outside Damascus, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement in English condemning the Islamic Republic's presence in Syria.
