Syria's official Sana news agency reported that Israeli aircraft attempted an airstrike in Syria Monday night.

According to the report, Syrian air defense systems were activated in the skies of Damascus and thwarted an attack by the IAF.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the planes which carried out the airstrikes were Israeli and that the targets were Iranian militia outposts around the Syrian capital.

The Syrian army announced that seven people had been killed in the attack attributed to Israel.

Several airstrikes occurred in Syria last month which were attributed to Israel.

In one case, Arab networks claimed that Israeli planes attacked outposts of pro-Iranian forces in two different sections of Syria at the same time.
