Syrian military sites came under three Israeli missile attacks near the capital Damascus on Tuesday, according to the Syrian military.

The attacks targeted the sites in al-Qatefa area in Damascus countryside, the Syrian army said in a statement cited by the official SANA news agency.

It said Syrian air defenses confronted the Israeli attacks, but without giving further details.

SANA gave no details about casualties or damage in the alleged attacks.

There was no comment from Israel on the claim.

Since the outbreak of the Syria conflict in 2011, Israel has occasionally struck positions inside its war-ravaged neighbor, especially after mortar shells -- allegedly fired from Syrian territory -- fell inside the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
