Syrian state media reported suspected Israeli strikes early Tuesday morning local time in the capital Damascus, as tensions between Iran and Israel continue to play out in the country. 

Syria’s official news outlet SANA reported that the “Israeli enemy” fired missiles from the Golan Heights at unspecified targets near Damascus at 12:15 a.m. local time (5:15 p.m. ET on Monday). Syrian air defenses downed some of the missiles, but two civilians were killed, according to SANA.
