Regime media reported early on Wednesday morning that Israel had fired a number of surface-to-surface missiles from the Golan Heights towards sites in Quneitra near the border, causing some material damage.
Local journalists claimed the targets included an observation post in the town of Rwihinah, adjacent to the border fence, and a “finance building” in the City of Baath.
The strikes are the second alleged Israeli attacks in Syria in a week. Last Thursday, a number of sites were targeted by surface-to-surface missiles near Zakyah, south of Damascus. According to sources, Iranian militias control sites and warehouses at the sites that were targeted.
Israel has launched hundreds of strikes against Iran-linked military targets in Syria over the years, but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations.
Israel has acknowledged that it targets the bases of Iranian forces and Iran-allied groups, particularly along the Golan Heights, such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah. It says it also attacks arms shipments believed to be bound for those groups.
