(March 17, 2021 / JNS) Syrian state media reported on Tuesday that Israel had launched an airstrike against targets in the Damascus region.
The Syrian Arab News Agency quoted an unnamed Syrian military official as saying that Israel had launched missiles from the direction of the Golan Heights at 10:35 p.m on Tuesday.
The source said that the strikes had caused material damage but no casualties.
According to the U.K.-based war monitor Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the strikes targeted “at least two” Iranian militia warehouses at a Syrian military facility.
