There were no casualties.

Israel had retaliated for the rocket attack, Conricus confirmed but would not say where or how.

Iran, which has vowed to take revenge for alleged Israeli airstrikes on its facilities in Syria, was now thought to be considering sending operatives to infiltrate Israeli army bases or towns in the north, according to Hadashot.

The timing of the attempted Iranian retaliation against Israel, which coincided with Trump's announcement he would ditch the nuclear agreement, suggests the Iranians were planning to make good on their promise to deliver "special surprises" whenever the U.S. would quit the deal.

Opposition figure and former Syrian brigadier Assad al Zogbi said however that the operation was limited to strikes on military targets only and ruled out an all-out war.

All five countries - France, Germany, the UK, China and Russian Federation - have said they will stick to the agreement.

Israel blamed Irani forces in Syria for the attack.

The Sana news agency said Syrian air defences had shot down two Israeli missiles in the Kiswah area on Tuesday.

According to Ron Ben-Yishai, the military correspondent for Hebrew-language daily Yedioth Aharanoth, the Syrian reports seem to indicate that Iran has been been trying to launch missiles at Israel in recent days.

The Syrian human rights organization claimed that strikes have been the position of the missile and warehouses of missiles.

He added that Israel may have been prompted to attack Tuesday once it discovered that Iran had removed rocket launchers and missile silos from underground storage and prepared them for use against the Jewish state.

Iran is Israel's arch-foe and has repeatedly called for an end to the existence of the Jewish state.

Russia's Sputnik news quoted a source at the Beirut International Airport that said that Israeli combat aircraft were in Lebanese airspace at the supposed time of the strike in Syria.

Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah have been helping Assad beat back a seven-year-old rebellion. On April 30, Israel was said to have struck government outposts in northern Syria, killing more than a dozen pro-government fighters, many of them Iranians.

Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, one of the biggest critics of the Iran deal and close Trump ally, told his cabinet on Sunday he was "determined to block Iran's aggression against us even if this means a struggle".

"I don't think that if [this operation] had not happened that Mr Trump would have changed his mind", said Jacob Nagel, a former national security adviser to Mr Netanyahu who had helped lobby against the nuclear deal.

Last week, he unveiled what he said was a cache of Iranian documents proving it had not ended its efforts to build a nuclear weapon, in defiance of the deal.
