Syria's state news agency says Israel has fired several surface-to-surface missiles at a military post near the capital, Damascus.
Syria's state news agency SANA said the surface-to-surface missiles, which were fired shortly after midnight on December 1, caused material damage. An Israeli military spokeswoman had declined to comment on earlier reports of such an attack overnight. This NGO, which has a network of informers on ground, pointed out that explosions were heard throughout capital, where partial blackouts were also recorded.
Details of the attack are still unclear, as the first reports were in the Israeli media, and within a matter of hours were removed.
The Israeli air force has said it struck arms convoys of the Syrian military and Lebanon's Hezbollah almost 100 times during more than six years of the Syrian war.

The US ambassador to the UN Security Council Nikki Haley said the North Korean regime would be "utterly destroyed" if war comes. He said: "North Korea will be risky in about nine months or so because then two things are going to happen at the same time".
Israel's bombings in Syrian territory typically operate under the guise of combatting the Lebanese resistance, Hezbollah, which Israel sees as a primary enemy.
Iran and Lebanon's Hizballah movement are allied with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
