Aftermath of Israel strikes targeting Syria army position near Kisweh

Aftermath of Israel strikes targeting Syria army position near Kisweh

The agency had earlier reported "explosions" in the southern suburb, while state television broadcast images of fires in the area targeted by the strikes.

The IDF announcement came moments before President Donald Trump announced the US was pulling out of the worldwide deal to limit Iran's nuclear weapons program.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) however said that at least nine pro-government fighters were killed during the Israeli missile strikes. The group, which closely monitors the Syria war through a network of activists on the ground, said it was not clear whether those killed were Revolutionary Guard members or members of a pro-Iranian militia.

An Israeli air strike targeted a Syrian army position in the Kisweh area south of Damascus on Tuesday but caused no casualties, a commander in the regional alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Reuters.

Israel's army instructed municipalities in the Golan Heights to open bomb shelters in the northern plateau after noticing "irregular activity" of Iranian forces in Syria that raised fears of an impending attack on Israel.

Fox News however, quoting Western sources said an Iranian military base in Syria was the target of the attack.

On April 9, missiles targeted the T-4 air base in the central province of Homs, killing up to 14 fighters, including seven Iranians, two days after an alleged chemical attack carried out by the Syrian regime.

"Over the years, Iran and its proxies have bombed American embassies and military installations, murdered hundreds of American servicemembers, and kidnapped, imprisoned, and tortured American citizens", Trump said in a statement on Tuesday.

In Washington, CNN reported on Tuesday that United States defence officials are seeing signs that Iran is preparing to strike Israel, possibly from Syria.

"Defense systems have been deployed and IDF troops are on high alert for an attack", the Israel Defense Forces spokesman said by text message.

The military said it is prepared for "various scenarios" and warned "any aggression against Israel will be met with a severe response".

Over the last five weeks, Israel has reportedly carried out at least three rounds of strikes against Iran's military presence in Syria.
