Report: Israel strikes target outside Damascus

Eight Syrian soldiers were reportedly killed in the attack on Thursday

It was reported on Thursday evening by Reuters, citing a security source aligned with the Syrian government, that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) struck a building used by Syrian security forces outside Damascus.
The Syrian state-run SANA news agency cited its own security source as saying that eight soldiers have been killed. It reported “material damage” on the ground, without specifying the target. According to SANA, the missiles were launched from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
The Israeli authorities have not yet commented on the matter. West Jerusalem rarely acknowledged strikes outside of its territory.
The reported attack took place amid the continuing tensions between Israel and Iran, as well as Israel’s war with Hamas in Gaza, which is on track to enter its sixth month.
