Syrian state-run media is reporting an Israeli attack near the capital Damascus, saying Syrian air defenses shot down two missiles.

The official news agency SANA said Tuesday night’s attack happened in the countryside in Kisweh, just south of Damascus. It came about about an hour after President Donald Trump announced he was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, calling Tehran a primary exporter of terrorism in the area.

An official while using Iran-led axis of resistance said the strike targeted a Syrian Army position and caused only material damage. He spoke on condition of anonymity while he wasn’t authorized to offer official statements.

There was no immediate comment from Israel, which almost never confirms or denies airstrikes in Syria.

Iran has vowed to retaliate to recent Israeli strikes in Syria targeting Iranian outposts in the country.
