The official Syrian news agency SANA reported that the Syrian air defenses confronted missiles launched by the Israeli warplanes from the sky over Lebanon.

An aircraft belonging to Iran's Fars Air Qeshm - an air cargo firm which has been accused of ferrying arms into Syria and Lebanon - landed in Damascus at around 7:00 p.m. local time, three hours before the air strikes began.

The Israeli attack, if confirmed, would be the first since US President Donald Trump announced last week that the US will withdraw its forces from Syria.

No damage or injuries were reported by the Israeli military.

Israel and Russian Federation have sought to avoid such occurrences since Moscow's military intervention in Syria on behalf of the Assad regime began in 2015.

Addressing a graduation ceremony for new pilots at an Israeli air force base on Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made no direct reference to specific attacks or Moscow's criticism.

Also reportedly targeted were strategic Iranian supplies to Hezbollah, including advanced Global Positioning System components for use in the many, many missiles that the Lebanese terror group has aimed at Israel.

The Defence Ministry says Japan plans to purchase 105 conventional F-35s and 42 F-35Bs to replace some of its fleet of F-15s. The guidelines did not mention whether the F-2 successor would be made in Japan or jointly developed.

Syrian Air Defenses intercepted and downed most of the missiles, with damage limited to the depot, the agency reported.

Israel has launched a series of missile strikes against Iranian-backed militias close to the Syrian capital. It said Hezbollah planned to use these tunnels in the event of a war to conduct attacks in Israel.

It said a number of missiles hit three targets, which it claimed are weapon depots that belong to the Lebanese Hezbollah group.

Speculations that the Hezbollah delegation might have been targeted while on board of one of the Iranian planes was discounted by former director of Israeli Military Intelligence, Maj.

When Syria's S-200 air-defense system responded to the breach, Israeli F-16 hid behind the Russian plane which was hit by a Syrian missile.

But he repeated his position that he will not allow archenemy Iran to establish a permanent military presence in Syria, and said Israel's air force has unmatched capabilities and can reach arenas "near and far, very far".
