Syrian state television says reports of an Israeli attack on southern Syria

Published: Updated:

Syrian state television said on Wednesday there were reports of an Israeli attack on a strategic area in southern Syria where Western intelligence sources previously said Iranian-backed militias are known to be based.

The newsflash on state-owned Ikhbariyah did not give details but said the strike was on Tel Haraa which has long been an outpost for Russian forces but was later taken by Iranian-backed militias, according to Western intelligence sources.

“The missiles, probably Israeli” were fired into the southern region, including the Tall al-Hara area in Daraa province, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
