Prime Minister Netanyahu also said in remarks early this week that the IRGC has moved advanced weapons into Syria. In addition, Israel destroyed weapons depots, intelligence centers, anti-aircraft weaponry, storage facilities, observation posts and operations headquarters.

Three people were killed and two wounded in Syria, the country's military said. "The global community must not stand idly by while a tyrannical regime attacks a sovereign nation and continues to threaten the very existence of a member-state of the United Nations", the ambassador added.

The White House on Thursday deemed those attacks "provocative" and said it supported Israel's right to self-defence. The Golan Heights region borders Syria. "We call on Russian Federation to use its influence in Syria to prevent further Iranian attacks". It said four were intercepted by the Iron Dome rocket defense system, while others fell in Syrian territory.

The UN chief further called on the Security Council "to remain actively seized of the matter and shoulder its responsibilities under the" UN charter, Dujarric noted and said Guterres "stands ready to work closely with all its members in this regard".

Bret Baier said Israel's strike on Iranian military infrastructure in Syria is a "huge story" that's being under-reported by much of the media.

In addition to the strikes on the Iranian targets, the army also targeted multiple Syrian air defense systems. "I wish to hope that we'll have the opportunity not exclusively to debate with you, but additionally to search for options that will soften the scenario", mentioned Putin.

In response to Iran's attempt to bomb some of its military sites, the Israeli military has destroyed several Iranian posts in Syria.

Russia, generally friendly to Israel but fighting in Syria's civil war on the same side as Iran, called on both to show restraint and resolve differences through diplomatic means.

Iran has sent thousands of personnel over the years to shore up President Bashar Assad's forces in his fight against an insurgency.

Israel, too, may feel emboldened by US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said: "The Prime Minister condemned the Iranian rocket attacks against Israeli forces, and said we strongly support Israel's right to defend itself against Iranian aggression".

A U.S. defense official told CNN that it was an Israeli military strike that hit suspected Iranian weapons near Damascus.

"Should there be another Iranian attack, we will be prepared for it", he said.

"The point will come with these actions where the Iranians will say, 'We have to push back forcefully, we have to establish deterrence against the Israelis if we want to stay in Syria, '" said Wimmen.

Russian Federation has also sent forces to Syria to back Assad. He also took aim at the USA, saying the Russians "know that the agenda of the deep state in the United States is to create a conflict".
