Damascus, Nov 30: The Israeli air force fired two missiles at dawn today that hit near Damascus, without causing any casualties, Syrian state television said. “The air force of the Israeli enemy today launched two missiles from Lebanese air space,” it said, adding that they hit the Sabbura area west of Damascus.

Israel, which is technically still at war with Syria, has sought to limit its involvement in its neighbour’s five-year conflict. But it has carried out sporadic sorties against Lebanon’s Hezbollah inside Syria, which has forces fighting in support of the Damascus government.
