Israeli media reports the country’s Air Force conducted strikes against military facilities in Syria near Damascus.
Satellite images show the Israeli Air Force targeted suspected Iranian bases in three villages outside of the capital city.
This comes as Israel is getting increasingly involved in the Syrian conflict in order to counter Iranian military presence in the region.
At least seven structures, that appear to be barracks and garages, were destroyed in the airstrike, while another three were damaged.
Israeli officials say they will take the necessary steps to keep their border and citizens safe.
Following the strikes, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he won’t allow Iran to “entrench” in Syria.
