The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Wednesday said three Israeli rockets hit Syrian army positions near Damascus, according to Reuters.
There was no immediate report of casualties, or of the likely target of such an attack.
In late December, Hezbollah-allied terrorist Samir Kuntar was killed in an explosion in his Damascus home which was attributed to Israel. Kuntar’s death was followed within hours by rocket strikes from Lebanon on the northern Israeli city of Nahariya.
Days after Kuntar’s assassination, Israeli warplanes hit Hezbollah targets in the Qalamoun area of Syria in a series of at least seven airstrikes, Syrian media outlets reported at the time. The IDF declined to comment on the alleged airstrikes.
