In Syria, air defence shot down suspected Israeli missiles targeting the west of capital Damascus.

Syrian state news agency said Israel has mounted attacks in Syria to counter the influence carved out there by Iran, which has supported President Bashar al-Assad in war that erupted in 2011.

Earlier, Syrian Foreign Ministry said repeated Israeli attacks on Syria aim to prolong more than seven-year war in the country.
