Official Syrian media reported that Israeli helicopters fired missiles at locations in southern Syria at night, days after similar air strikes, which Damascus accused Israel of carrying out.

The Syrian official news agency, SANA, reported after midnight that Israeli helicopters carried out an attack with several missiles from the airspace of the occupied Syrian Golan, on sites in the southern region, indicating that only material damage had occurred.

For its part, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed that the raids took place, indicating that they targeted military sites belonging to the Iranian forces and militias loyal to them.

The observatory said that the shelling targeted military points of the regime forces and pro-Iranian militias in the Tal Ahmar area and the vicinity of the town of Maariya (west of Daraa), and the western Tal al-Ahmar area in Quneitra.

Opposition sources in the region also said that the attack targeted several locations of armed factions near Quneitra. Reports stated that the attack caused only material damage.

This bombing comes after the killing of three civilians with rockets that landed on houses near Damascus just before dawn on Monday, in an operation that blamed Damascus for Israel.

Since the beginning of the war in Syria, Israel has launched hundreds of raids on this country, targeting regime forces, members of the Iranian allied forces, and fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah.

Israel has admitted in recent years many raids in Syria, and says it considers the Iranian presence in Syria a threat.
