Syria says Israeli helicopters strike targets in southern Syria


AMMAN (Reuters) – Syrian state media said on Friday that Israeli helicopters fired several rockets from Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on targets inside southern Syria.

The attack, one of several attacks by Israel this month that Western intelligence sources say have targeted Iranian-backed militias that have a growing presence inside Syria, caused only material damage, according to state media.

Bases and convoys run by Lebanon’s Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia which has a strong presence in the Syrian Golan Heights have been hit by Israel in recent years.
