ISRAEL FIRES ROCKETS ON SYRIAN SITE IN QUNAITERA PROVINCE AMID HEIGHTENED TENSION

DAMASCUS, Syria, Israel fired several rockets on Syrian military positions, in the southern province of Qunaitera overnight, with no immediate reports of losses, Syrian state TV said, as pro-government media said, rockets targeted Israeli military positions, in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The shelling targeted al-Baath city, said the TV, spelling no further details, as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, the Israeli shelling targeted military positions of Syria and its allies, near al-Baath city.

In what appeared to be retaliation, Pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV said, tens of rockets were fired on Israeli military positions, in the Israeli-held Golan Heights area, adding that, four major Israeli military positions were targeted, including "sensitive" ones.

Citing sources, the report said that Israel has also carried out air strikes on Khan Arnabeh area in Qunaitera.

This tension comes, a day after Israel targeted a Syrian military site, in the Kisweh area, in the south-western countryside of the capital, Damascus, and activists said, 15 people were killed, including eight Iranians.

The Israeli attack comes, amid heightened tension with Iran, following last month's Israeli attacks on Syrian positions, where Iranian military experts were located.

It also comes after the U.S. announced withdrawing from the Iranian nuclear pact.
