    Dramatic footage of some destroyed compounds in the suburbs of Syria's capital of Damascus after a purported Israeli airstrike has appeared on the internet. According to eyewitnesses, the recent attacks caused extensive damage to local infrastructure. At least two persons have been reported dead so far, Syrian news agency SANA said on Wednesday.

    On Tuesday, the Syrian army repelled the alleged Israeli missile strikes near the settlement of Al-Kiswah 23 kilometers (some 14 miles) south of Damascus, the Syrian state television reported citing a military source.
