Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz speaks at the World Summit on Counter-Terrorism in Herzliya, Israel September 4, 2018. It says Israeli jets struck military installations belonging to Iran, a key ally of the Syrian government.

The official said alleged Israeli airstrikes in Syria on Tuesday were not included in the tally.

The Israeli military official did not comment directly on those reports on Tuesday, but said the army was aware of missile transfers from Iran to Iraq and then on to Syria.

"Understand the significance of this matter in terms of preserving the red line, preventing the things that Iran has done, is doing and is trying to do against Israel from Syria".

A total of 202 strikes were carried out in neighbouring Syria, the official said, all of which involved "military targets, majority belonging to the (Iranian) Revolutionary Guards".

In August 2017, the outgoing chief of Israel's air force told Haaretz newspaper that his corps had carried out "nearly 100 strikes" in Syria.

Trump Tells Montana Rally Crowd: If I Get Impeached, it's Your Fault
Trump was in Montana to campaign for senate candidate Matt Rosendale, when he addressed rumors of impeachment. In a "Fox & Friends" interview at Trump's rally in Montana, Trump said he didn't like "what Nike did".

The defence minister was speaking following reports that Iran had provided ballistic missiles to allied Shiite militias in Iraq in recent months.

That left another 100 in the time since, according to the official Israeli accounts issued on Tuesday - or roughly two a week.

Israel has been concerned at the presence of Iranian forces backing President Bashar Al-Assad in the conflict, resulting in frequent Israeli strikes against certain Syrian targets.

Israel's strikes on Syria have been largely ignored by Russia, Syria's big power backer.

Lebanon's Al-Mayadeen News said Israeli fighter planes released countermeasures against anti-aircraft fire "and withdrew towards the sea at the same time as the sounds of explosions were heard in Hama countryside".

The state agency stated that military air defenses were used to confront several rockets fired by Israeli planes near Hama.
