Dec 2, 2017 Read more: SFGate
BEIRUT - Israel fired surface-to-surface missiles at a military post near the Syrian capital of Damascus early on Saturday, causing damage but no casualties, Syria's state-run news agency reported. The strike came as violence resumed in the Damascus suburbs after days of calm while the government and opposition delegations attended peace talks in Geneva. The Israeli military did not comment on the missile attack, which occurred shortly after midnight Friday, targeting a military area near the southern Damascus suburb of Kiswah. SANA, the state news agency, said the missile attack caused structural damage but gave no details. The report also said Syrian air defenses shot down two of the Israeli missiles.
