Netanyahu confirms air strikes on Iranian targets in Syria

The Syrian air defenses intercepted most of the missiles launched by Israeli warplanes on areas near the capital Damascus on Friday night, the Syrian army said.

Netanyahu said Sunday: "The accumulated number of recent attacks proves that we are determined more than ever to act against Iran in Syria".

"The results of the aggression so far were limited to a strike on one of the warehouses at Damascus airport", the SANA news agency cited a military source as saying.

Israel has pledged to prevent Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria, where it is backing President Bashar al-Assad's regime alongside Russian Federation and Hezbollah.

"The Israel Defense Forces has attacked hundreds of Iranian and Hezbollah targets".

Markets slip as US-China trade negotiations end
Apple Inc rattled global markets last week when it cut its sales outlook, blaming weak demand in China. The American delegation was led by one of Lighthizer's deputies, Jeffrey D.

The official said Israeli aircraft coming from the south fired several missiles at areas near Damascus around 11:15 PM.

Israel has mounted attacks in Syria as part of its effort to counter the influence carved out there by Iran, which has supported President Bashar al-Assad in the war that erupted in 2011. The jet crashed in northern Israel and both pilots parachuted out before the impact.

Israel has until now generally refrained from commenting about the strikes for fear of triggering a reaction and being drawn into the deadly fighting in neighbouring Syria's civil war. He said the military had carried out over 200 strikes in Syria over the preceding year and a half.

"We'll continue our engineering actions along the border and tracking Hezbollah's underground activities". While they have at times traded blows within Syria - where Hezbollah has been helping Damascus beat back rebels - the Israel-Lebanon border has mostly been quiet.

Only recently has it begun to speak publicly about thwarting the weapons shipments from Iran through Syria into Lebanon. In 2018 alone, Israel dropped around 2,000 bombs on alleged Iran-linked targets, Gadi Eisenkot told the New York Times in his final interview as chief of staff of the IDF before he retires next week.
