According to earlier reports, Israel has launched a number of airstrikes targeting Syria's territory from Lebanese airspace.

Syrian media reported Saturday that the "Israeli enemy fired missiles at an army base outside Damascus".

The London based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that the missile attack was likely carried out by the Israeli military and targeted several government military bases in Al Kiswah situated in the southwest outskirts of the capital. A recent report in a Kuwaiti newspaper included a statement from Israeli officials who said that the government had vowed to destroy any Iranian positions within 40 km of the northern border with Syria.

The newspaper Arab Today, directly quoting Iranian media, declared the names of the dozen members of the Iranian forces that were said to have been killed in the Israeli attack on the base near the Syrian capital of Damascus. Israel has also been providing medical treatment to the extremist militants wounded in Syria.

Israeli leaders of late have issued several statements committing to preventing a growing Iranian presence in Lebanon or Syria, including the establishment of bases.

"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".

On November 10, the BBC reported that Iran had established a compound at a site used by the Syrian army outside Al-Kiswa. Satellite images showed construction at the alleged base.
