VIDEO: Aftermath of Israel strikes targeting Syria army position near Kisweh
An Israeli air strike targeted a Syrian army position in the Kisweh area south of Damascus on Tuesday but caused no casualties, a commander in the regional alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Reuters.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) however said that at least nine pro-government fighters were killed during the Israeli missile strikes.
Syrian state news agency SANA had reported the sound of explosions near Kisweh and said Syrian air defenses fired at and destroyed two Israeli missiles in the Kisweh area.
SOHR Director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP that missiles targeted an "arms depot belonging to Hezbollah and the Iranians".
