The missile attack was likely targeted at several government military bases in Al Kiswah on the southwest outskirts of Damascus, destroying 'an arms depot, ' reported the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Although the air defences responded to the attack, intercepting two of the missiles, the rest caused damage to the base.

Syria's state news agency says Israel has fired several surface-to-surface missiles at a military post near the capital, Damascus.

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said the missile strike targeted a military base near Kesweh, south of Damascus. In this way, Israeli officials claim that their strikes are counterterror operations as the resistance group is considered a terrorist organization under Israeli law.

A report from the BBC in September alleged that Iran had established a military base in Syria, south of the capital; while Iranian forces may not have an overwhelming presence in the country, numerous militias - including Lebanon's Hezbollah - that are aligned with the Syrian regime are bankrolled and armed by the Islamic Republic.

"Let me reiterate Israel's policy: We will not allow a regime hell-bent on the annihilation of the Jewish state to acquire nuclear weapons".

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recorded a video message for the upcoming Saban Forum in Washington.

In September, Israeli warplanes hit a military position near the Mediterranean coast in western Syria, killing two soldiers and causing material damage. Satellite images showed construction at the alleged base.
