The attack comes just days after Syrian media reported what it described as "Israeli aggression from Lebanese airspace", in which at least three civilians were killed.

Israeli helicopters have fired several missiles from the occupied Golan Heights on targets in southern Syria, SANA news agency reported on Friday. According to SANA, the attack made "limited material damage" only, with no casualties.

Unconfirmed reports say explosions were heard in the Al Quneitra and Daraa governorates, in southern Syria, where the Lebanese Hezbollah militia and the Iranian Quds Force bases are located. 

Early on Monday, SANA news agency reported that Syrian air defence systems intercepted several missiles which, it said, were launched by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF).

Damascus has accused Israel on a multitude of occasions of conducting illegal air raids on the Arab Republic, urging the international community to pressure Tel Aviv on the issue. The latter, however, only claimed responsibility for some of these airstrikes.

Israeli Military Refuses to Comment on Reported Missile Strikes in Southern Syria

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) have refused to comment on the latest media reports on their overnight missile attacks on southern Syria.

"We do not comment on foreign media reports", a spokesperson for the IDF said.

Syrian official SANA news agency reported that Israeli military had conducted a missile strike from positions near the Golan Heights targeting southern parts of Syria last night. According to the news outlet, Israeli helicopters fired several missiles, causing some material damage, but leaving no casualties.

On Monday, Syrian media reported that three civilians had been killed and four others had been injured as a result of an Israeli rocket attack on Syria's Damascus province.

Israel frequently conducts airstrikes on Syria under the pretext of countering Iran's alleged military presence in the neighbouring country. The Jewish state usually asserts that its strikes come in response to rocket attacks on Israel from Syria. Damascus views Israel's attacks as an assault on Syria's sovereignty.

Satellite Images Allegedly Depict Damage Done to Syrian Facilities by Airstrikes Blamed on Israel

Many of these airstrikes were attributed to the Israeli Air Force by Syrian media outlets, but Tel Aviv itself has not commented on these claims only vaguely hinting that it might be behind the attacks.

Private intelligence firm ImageSat has released a series of satellite images allegedly showing the extent of the damage done to Syrian infrastructure by the airstrikes that targeted the country between 31 March and 27 April. One set of images purportedly showed the destruction at the Shayrat Air Base, in the Homs region as a result of the 31 March airstrike.

According to the images, the air raid destroyed navigation equipment and left craters at the airbase, but all of that has since been repaired, with the base resuming operations two weeks after the strike, the company claimed.

Another set of images reportedly showed the destruction from the airstrikes near the city of Al-Sukhah, east of Homs, Syria. The airstrike allegedly levelled half of a warehouse on the road to Palmyra. ImageSat alleged that the building was used to store missiles or other advanced weapons, but didn't indicate the source of such information.

The intelligence firm also released satellite images allegedly depicting the consequences of the air raid on the Al Mazzeh military airport located near Damascus on 27 April. The photos show a crater appearing at the alleged entrance to the underground part of the facility, comparing it to images from November 2019, when the airbase was attacked last time.

All of these attacks have been attributed to Israel by Syrian media outlets, but Tel Aviv has refused to either deny or confirm being behind them. In the past Israel acknowledged responsibility for some such strikes claiming to have targeted Iran or its proxies purportedly stationed in Syria - something that both Damascus and Tehran deny.

However, in light of the recent attacks, Defence Minister Naftali Bennett might have hinted in a veiled form that Tel Aviv was behind the April strikes saying that Israel has "moved from blocking Iran’s entrenchment in Syria to forcing it out of there".

"We will not allow more strategic threats to grow just across our borders without taking action. We will continue to take the fight to the enemy’s territory", Bennett said.
