May 8 (UPI) -- Syrian media blamed Israeli airstrikes for explosions south of the capital of Damascus on Tuesday.
Syrian state media reported that the country's air defenses intercepted two Israeli missiles in the Al- Kiswah area.
The Israeli military didn't confirm the strike; it has a policy against commenting on Syrian airstrikes.
Israeli military officials previously called for local governments to prepare bomb shelters after "abnormal movements of Iranian forces in Syria" and warned residents of the Golan Heights region, near the Israel-Syria border, of a potential airstrike.
Israel Defense Forces also deployed missile defense batteries in northern Israel, stating "there is high preparedness of IDF troops for an attack."
"The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen," Trump said.
