The Israeli jets allegedly aimed to attack a military facility and caused an extensive damage.

Yaakov Amidror, a former head of Israel's National Security Council, said the attack would constitute "another level" of Israeli actions in Syria.

Israel has sporadically carried out air strikes on sites in Syria in recent years.

"The Israeli fighter planes fired several rockets from inside Lebanese airspace", it said.

A few hours after the attack, the Syrian Army warned that there will be "dangerous repercussions", calling the airstrike an aggressive move that threatens the "security and stability in the region".

Retired Israeli Gen Amos Yadlin tweeted that the strike was a demonstration "Israel intends to enforce its redlines despite the fact that the great powers are ignoring them".

The attack was initially reported by the Syrian government, although it made no mention of the SSRC.

Tensions between Israel and Syria increased after reports that Israel hit a research center responsible for developing chemical weapons near the city of Hama.

While the IDF does not comment on foreign reports, it would not be the first time Israeli jets have hit Assad regime and Hezbollah targets in Syria.

Yaakov Amidror, the former head of Israel's National Security Council, told Israel's Army Radio Thursday that its airstrikes were only meant to weaken Iranian and Shiite military groups operating in Syria.
