  • Arab media: 12 Iranians killed in 'Israeli strike' in Syria

According to Syrian state media, the Syrian air defenses intercepted at least two of the five Israeli missiles fired that reached government "military positions" in Damascus. Saturday's report also says that Syrian air defenses shot down two of the Israeli missiles. As we've noted before, the BBC report was dubiously sourced to "a Western intelligence source" and the story was quickly utilized by Israeli leaders to ratchet up rhetoric in preparing its case before the global community for further attacks on the supposed Iranian targets.

Media outlets outside of Israel reporting on the incident make no mention of a "Iranian base," saying that what was targeted was an Army ammunition depot.

Hizballah fought a war with Israel in 2006.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has previously warned that Israel would not allow Iran to establish any military presence in Syria.

Earlier this year, a senior Israeli official vowed that Israel would bomb Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's palace in Damascus if Hezbollah continued to expand its sway over the war-torn country.

A BBC investigation revealed last month that Iran was building a permanent base within enclosure of I division of Syrian Army in Al Kiswa, located about 50 kilometres from Golan Heights.

Tehran has helped prop up the Syrian regime with militias and officers. It hopes, in short, to take economic advantage of reconstruction of country after almost seven years of civil war in which its contribution to foreseeable triumph of regime has been decisive.
