Israeli Patriot missiles down target over Golan Heights: army”

The strike "corresponds completely with Israel's policy to act to prevent Iran's smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hizbullah", Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz told Israeli radio. "Naturally, I don't want to elaborate on this".

Israel is believed to have hit Damascus in December 2014, and Palmyra last month.

Other Israeli leaders have said that Hezbollah receiving game-changing weapons, such as advanced missiles or chemical weapons, represents a "red line" that Israel will not accept.

As per the media of Israel, they were storing weapons for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.

Earlier, Damascus ally Hezbollah said the blast was "probably" the result of an Israeli air strike.

'It's unclear what caused the explosion but there are fires raging at the site'.

A military site southwest of Damascus International Airport was bombed by Israeli warplanes on Thursday, according to Syrian state news agency SANA.

The airport lies about 15 miles southeast of the capital.

Israel regards Hezbollah, and its key backer Iran, as its biggest threat.

In March, Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime fired a number of missiles toward Israeli jets after the Israel Air Force struck targets in Syria.

18 January 2015: Six Hezbollah fighters and several Iranian soldiers, including a general, die in suspected Israeli air strikes in Syria's Golan Heights region. The residents of the area said flames could be seen far from distance.

An Israeli Patriot missile intercepted a Syrian unmanned aircraft that entered Israeli airspace over the Golan Heights on Thursday evening, the Israel Defense Forces said, following reports of an attack in Damascus attributed by Syria to Israel.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli military declined to comment on today's bombing run.

Israel, of course, attacks Syria regularly, but rarely confirms them publicly.
