Iron dome intercepts Syrian missiles following claims of attack on Damascus

The Iron Dome successfully intercepted the projectile.

Tel Aviv has a bellicose relationship with Damascus' Lebanese ally Hezbollah and Iran, and repeatedly strikes targets in the conflict-torn country.

For years, Israel has conducted airstrikes against Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria, which it considers threats to national security.

A photo released on 14 April 2018 shows anti-aircraft fire on the outskirts of Damascus after Western strikes reportedly hit Syrian military bases and chemical research centres in and around the capital.

Israel has accused Iran of seeking to establish a military presence in Syria that could threaten Israeli security and attempting to transfer advanced weaponry to the Hezbollah terror group in Lebanon.

"This policy does not change when I'm in Israel, and it does not change when I am in Chad", he added.

The alleged strike came hours after a Syrian cargo plane touched down in the Damascus International Airport from Tehran, according to publicly available flight data.
