Syrian state media speak of a possible Israeli attack in the south of Syrian news



Syrian state media reported on Wednesday that an Israeli rocket attack had targeted the country's southern province of Daraa, but reported no casualties.

The state news agency SANA and state television added that the "Israeli aggression" Tal al-Hara Hill, on which Syrian army posts are based, added that it was only causing material damage.

The media did not announce any further details of the attack on Wednesday, which took place one month after Israel's attack on the same area.

The attacks were previously described as "probably Israeli", the UK-based Syrian Human Rights Observatory said it had attacked Tall al-Hara in Daraa province south of Damascus and two areas in the neighboring Quneitrathe province.

Aircraft defense was activated to counteract the attack, "said the director of the observatory Rami Abdel Rahmane.

" Some missiles were shot down, others hit their target.

Hundreds of Air Strikes

The Tal al-Hara Hill, a strategic area overlooking the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, has been an important Russian military radar outpost for many years until rebels took over in 201

4 before it was re-conquered by the Syrian army last year.

The zone was targeted by Israeli raids against Tehran-backed militia rioting in southern Syria and the occupied Golan Heights near the Israeli border.

Last month, the Syrian army has announced that it has launched a series of Israeli rockets targeted at the site.

In recent years, Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria allegedly directed against its regional rival Iran Lebanese Hezbollah, calling them the greatest threat to their borders.

The strikes took place after the leader of His bollah earlier this month said the group's rockets could reach key Israeli sites along the Mediterranean coast, including in Tel Aviv.

Hassan Nasrallah also said Iran could "bomb Israel with ferocity and violence, but will not start a war."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu countered that his country would bring about "annihilation" military strike "against Hezbollah and Lebanon in case of attack".

Since the beginning of 2011, the Syrian conflict has killed more than 370,000 people and attracted world powers with the brutal suppression of anti-government protests.
