Two people were killed by Israel strikes on targets near Damascus early on Monday morning, Syrian state media reported.

“At about 05:00 a.m. on Monday, the Israeli enemy launched an aerial act of aggression from the direction of southern Beirut, targeting with missiles some sites in Damascus vicinity,” the Syrian Arab News Agency reported, citing a military official.

Israel’s Channel 12 News quoted Syrian reporters as saying that the strikes focused on several targets around the town of Zakiyah, including a military camp used by Iranian militias.

Two weeks ago, Syria state media attributed a similar attack to Israel, also in the Damascus area. Three soldiers were killed in that incident, Syria said.
