Two people were killed and multiple people wounded by the Israeli strikes, Syrian media reported on Wednesday.

The Israeli military says that it is "prepared for an attack and any scenario", but that in the meantime, Israeli citizens living in the northern part of the country near the Syrian border could proceed with their daily routines.

Syria's air defences were able to destroy most of the missiles fired by Israeli jets over the capital Damascus before they reached their targets.

Israel is believed to have carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria since civil war broke out there in 2011, to try to prevent Iran gaining a foothold.

The Israeli strikes targeted the launching points of missiles that were fired earlier from Syria on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, said the Observatory.

Iranian officials have not immediately commented, but Russian Federation called the Israeli strikes a "wrong" move. The two foes have increasingly clashed over what Israel says is Iran's deeper presence along its borders.

A Britain-based war monitoring group reported that 11 civilians, including seven non-Syrians who were likely Iranians, were killed in the attack.

An Israeli airstrike killed Bahu Abu al-Atta and his wife in their home in eastern Gaza Tuesday, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an IDF spokesman, said. The strikes were in retaliation for four rockets fired at Israel from Syria the day before. He added that Israel also holds Syria responsible for hosting the Iranians.

"The rules have changed: Whoever fires at Israel during the day will not sleep at night".

The killing was accompanied by a second strike, unconfirmed by Israel, on an Islamic Jihad leader in Damascus that killed his son and another person. Israel sometimes carries out attacks on Syria from planes flying over Lebanon. In Gaza, it supplies Islamic Jihad with cash, weapons and expertise.
