Footage shows what appear to be Syrian anti-ballistic air defenses being engaged against Israel’s airstrikes into the area around Damascus on Monday morning.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that their strikes targeted the Quds Force of Iran's Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

The Israeli military claimed that their strikes were carried out in retaliation, after the Quds Force allegedly fired a rocket from Syria towards the Golan Heights the day before.

According to the IDF, their targets included munition storage sites, an Iranian intelligence site, an Iranian military training camp and a military site located at the Damascus International Airport.
