Israeli missiles fired from the Golan Heights hit Syrian targets south of Damascus late Wednesday night, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.
“At 23:35, the Israeli enemy carried out an attack using surface-to-surface missiles fired from the Golan Heights toward targets in the village of Zakyah in southern Damascus, causing damage to the site,” the report said.
There was material damage, but no casualties were reported.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor, said Israel targeted a building where a meeting of unknown military officials was held, AP reported.
