    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.
