Israeli bombardment in Syria killed 3, injured 2 – state media
Three people have been killed and two wounded in an attack by Israeli forces against Iranian targets in Syria. Israeli strikes destroyed a radar station and an arms warehouse and damaged air defense units, Sana reports.

Syrian air defense systems intercepted most of the rockets launched by Israel at dawn, according to Syrian army command cited by Sana. Israel's direct action indicates “a new stage of aggression against Syria,” the agency reported, citing a source in the Syrian Foreign Ministry.

Early on Thursday, Israeli forces launched a barrage of rockets at Syrian territory, saying that it was aimed at Iranian targets in the country. Tel-Aviv blames Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp’s Quds Forces of attacking its positions in the Golan Heights and in response carried out the massive overnight attack.
