The attack near Hader village at the frontier of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights caused only material damage, said State news agency SANA, citing a military source. There is no immediate comment from the Israeli military. Israel has become deeply alarmed by the expanding clout of Iran during the seven-year war in Syria. Its air force has struck scores of targets it describes as Iranian deployments or arms transfers to Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah.

Israel has been on high alert as Syrian government forces advance on rebels in the vicinity of the Golan, which Israel seized from Syria during the 1967 Middle Eastern conflict. Israel worries Assad could allow his Iranian allies to entrench near its lines, or that Syrian forces may defy a 1974 Golan demilitarization agreement.
