The Syrian state media and Sky News Arabia reported Syria's air-defense system also intercepted two Israeli surface-to-surface missiles.
Other pro-Assad news outlets reported that the target of the IAF attack was an Iranian military base near the city of Al-Kiswa, eight miles south of Damascus.
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. Syrian air defense claims to have intercepted at least two of the missiles fired at the base. The Israeli military has not confirmed the strike. Whilst he did accept Iran's expanding influence through proxies in Syria and elsewhere, Liberman asserted explicitly that Iranian presence was limited to "some Iranian advisers and experts".
Earlier, a senior Israeli official vowed to bomb Syrian President's palace if Hezbollah continued to expand its sway over Syria.
"Let me reiterate Israel's policy: We will not allow a regime hell-bent on the annihilation of the Jewish state to acquire nuclear weapons". But the Prime Minister's Office saw fit to put out the short clip relating to Iranian presence in Syria on Saturday evening.
However, some of the missiles hit their intended target, causing loud explosions near the towns of Kesweh and Sahnaya, the source further added.
Indeed, BBC itself used ambiguous language in saying the satellite images "seem to show" construction activity at the site referenced by the intelligence source between January and October this year.
