Opposition activists in Damascus said there was ambulance traffic from Damascus to the site. Syrian state media confirmed explosions in the area, but offered no details.

Iran has vowed to retaliate to recent Israeli strikes in Syria targeting Iranian outposts in the country. A longtime enemy of Iran, Israel is supported by Washington in the decision.

Israel has not yet commented on the report.

Israel's army instructed municipalities in the Golan Heights to open bomb shelters in the northern plateau after noticing "irregular activity" of Iranian forces in Syria that raised fears of an impending attack on Israel. He said there were jets in the sky but it was likely the position was targeted by surface-to-surface missiles from the Golan Heights. Such strikes have become more frequent recently, amid soaring tensions between regional archenemies Israel and Iran. Israeli officials have threatened to impose regime change in Syria as well if Iran dares to react. On April 29, Israel was suspected of more strikes in Hama and Aleppo, reportedly killing at least 18 pro-Iranian fighters.

Later, the Israeli military said in a statement it had called up some reservists but did not elaborate.

"Defense systems have been deployed and IDF troops are on high alert for an attack", the Israel Defense Forces spokesman said by text message.

"The IDF is ready and prepared for a variety of scenarios and warns that any action against Israel will be answered with a fierce retaliation", the Israeli army announced, according to The Times.
