According to Syrian state media, the Syrian air defenses intercepted at least two of the five Israeli missiles fired that reached government "military positions" in Damascus.

Syria's state news agency SANA said the surface-to-surface missiles, which were fired shortly after midnight on December 1, caused material damage.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor of the war, said the missiles, presumably Israeli, targeted "positions of the Syrian regime and its allies" southwest of Damascus. This NGO, which has a network of informers on ground, pointed out that explosions were heard throughout capital, where partial blackouts were also recorded.

An Israeli military spokesperson declined to comment.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said often that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a permanent presence in Syria.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the global community.

Last month the BBC revealed a claim that Iran was building a permanent military base near the town. The report showed satellite imagery apparently showing construction of military installations, but the images could not confirm whether this construction was indeed initiated by the Iranian military. With several hundred Revolutionary Guards and dozens of field instructors, he directs a multinational force comprising 7,000 Hezbollah fighters and several thousands of Shi'a combatants.

Some media outlets affiliated with the Assad regime and Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah initially reported that Israeli warplanes targeted an ammunition bunker belonging to the Syrian Army. The Islamic Republic aspires to count, like Russian Federation, with its own air and naval bases in Syria and to be able to exploit its uranium mines.

The two countries remain technically at war.
