Just days after Israel launched a combined air and surface-to-surface missile attack against what it claims is an Iranian military base south of Damascus, Israel has again attacked targets inside Syria, this time striking closer to the Syrian capital in the Jamraya area according to early reports.

Jamraya is an area well-known for multiple government facilities, including a branch of Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center, which was the site of a major 2013 attack by Israel, but also has sprawling civilian residential areas. It lies on the other side of Mt. Qasioun, against which the Damascus city center is nestled.

“Our air defenses are confronting an Israeli missile attack on one of our sites in the Damascus suburbs and three of the targets were downed,” state news agency SANA said, adding the attacks happened at 11:30 p.m. Monday. Beirut-based Al-Masdar confirmed that the strikes occurred during the evening (Middle East time):

At least two massive explosions ripped through the Syrian capital moments ago as battles for two rebel-held bastions in eastern Damascus continue.

While the reasons for the explosions are still unidentified, some local activists spoke of an Israeli airstrikes that hit Jamraya area (located 3 miles to the northwest of Damascus) where the facility of a very important government-run facility – namely the Scientific Research – is located.
