According to SANA, "anti-aircraft defences intercepted two Israeli missiles launched against (the district of) Kissweh and destroyed them".

Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the missiles had targeted a weapons depot in Kissweh, "presumably belonging to Hezbollah and the Iranians".

This is not the first time that the area in the southwest of Damascus has been targeted.

"Defense systems have been deployed and IDF troops are on high alert for an attack", the Israel Defense Forces spokesman said by text message.

The IDF announcement came moments before President Donald Trump announced the US was pulling out of the global deal to limit Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Earlier it was reported that the IDF recorded "suspicious activity" Iranian forces on the territories of Syria, bordering on Israel.

Israeli officials have been predicting an Iranian "attack" against them in retaliation for the various Israeli strikes in recent weeks.

The U.S. embassy in Israel ordered government employees to obtain advance approval for any travel to the Golan, a strategic plateau Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East War.

A base that was struck Tuesday night in the Kiswah area, about 12 kilometers south of Damascus housed an Iranian military bunker had allegedly been attacked by Israel before, and was the site of weapons factory or convoy.

We will remind that yesterday the Israeli defense force was brought into a state of "emergency preparedness to attack".

Separately, Israel is deeply concerned over Iran's presence in Syria, where Tehran, like Moscow, backs President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

In an interview late last month, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman vowed to strike at any attempt by Iran to establish a "military foothold" in Syria.
