"Israel has hit nearly all of Iran's infrastructure in Syria", Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Thursday morning. There were no Israeli casualties.

The Israeli government has vowed to stop Iran's "military entrenchment" in Syria and is believed to have carried out numerous other strikes against Iranian facilities this year.

Syria's state media said Syrian air defenses intercepted "hostile Israeli missiles" early Thursday that were fired over southwestern Damascus. "They must remember that if it rains here (in Israel) it will pour there", Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said. However Israel and Iran remain on a collision course. It also stated that it destroyed several Syrian air-defense systems after coming under heavy fire.

Israel's strikes overnight were one of the country's largest aerial operations in decades across the Syrian frontier, and by far its broadest direct attack yet on Iranian assets.

The suspected Israeli strike came after the IDF gave orders to open public bomb shelters in the Golan Heights after reports of "irregular Iranian movements" inside Syria.

Iranian state television announced the Israeli strikes, sourcing the information to Syria's state-run SANA news agency, and described the Israeli attack as "unprecedented".

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said his country was concerned about growing military tensions between Israel and Iran over Syria.

Israel "views this Iranian attack very severely", Conricus told reporters.

"The Iranians are determined to build their hostile presence, and we are determined to prevent it", he said.

Syrian air defenses that fired on Israeli forces were also targeted, he said. Israel fired back on Thursday, hitting dozens of Iranian targets in Syria. The Golan Heights region borders Syria. It was the first time Israel has directly accused Iran of firing toward Israeli territory.

Expectations of a regional flare-up, amid warnings from Israel that it was determined to prevent any Iranian military entrenchment in Syria, were stoked by U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement on Tuesday about the withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. Iran blames Israel for those strikes, while Israel has not confirmed or denied the attacks.

Russian Federation and Israel coordinate their actions within Syria for the objective of deconfliction.

Russian Federation has also sent forces to Syria to back Assad. "We have seen a demonstration of the IDF's intelligence and airpower capabilities", he added about the retaliatory strikes, according to the Post.

The Jewish state says it has conducted dozens of raids in Syria to stop what it says are advanced arms deliveries to Iran-backed Hezbollah, another key foe of Israel.

The two sides have been on a collision course for months.
