    This comes as Tel Aviv has been stepping up its attacks on suspected Iranian targets inside Syria over the past two months.

    Syrian air defence forces repelled what the media called an Israeli attack over the city of Masyaf in Syria's Hama province, according to the SANA news agency. 

    The missiles hit the outskirts of the city, the agency added. 

    SANA has posted a video "from our air defence to the Israeli aggression" that was recorded during the attack "in the atmosphere of Masyaf".

    The news agency noted that there were no casualties, and said that the attack resulted in material damage only.

    Lebanese media previously reported a violation of Lebanese airspace by Israeli aircraft flying at low altitudes.

    The Israeli army refused to comment on the reports.

    The Syrian state media have occasionally reported on what is being identified as Israeli attacks on Syrian soil against alleged Iranian assets.

    Tel Aviv has never confirmed its attacks in Syria this year, declining to comment on reports emerging in "foreign media".
