Israel again fires missiles at Syria site: Observatory

Jamraya contains a military research facility, which was hit by what was believed to have been an Israeli attack in 2013.

The images, which were taken by the Israeli satellite company ImageSat International, apparently show the destruction of seven buildings at the base located near the Syrian city of Al-Kiswa, just 31 miles from the Israeli border in the Golan Heights.

"Our air defenses are confronting an Israeli missile attack on one of our sites in the Damascus suburbs and three of the targets were downed", state news agency SANA said, adding the attacks happened at 11:30 p.m. Monday.

Israeli military forces struck the Jamarya military facilitary and research center northwest of Damascus late Monday night, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Ahead of its visit to Real Madrid on Wednesday, Dortmund has just two points from five games, the same as Cypriot team APOEL. Due to their superior head-to-head record against Real Madrid, Tottenham will qualify as winners of Group H.

Syrian state television reported that Syria's "air defence system thwarted the attack" by shooting down two of the Israeli missiles.

Sources said that the Israeli raid was aimed at government military sites and positions of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and that the sound of large explosions caused by the raid was heard in Damascus and its surroundings.

There were no reports of damages or injuries as a result of the strikes.

Several Arab media reports last weekend suggested that the strike purportedly killed 12 Iranian military personnel.
