Syria’s state news agency SANA reported that one building suffered extensive damage and that neighboring properties were also damaged. The target, which she said was located in the Mezzeh neighborhood near Damascus, but did not identify.

Iran’s SSN news portal, according to Reuters, wrote that “Israel struck the Iranian consulate and ambassador’s residence.” The strike was reportedly carried out by Israeli aircraft.

Israel refused to comment on the incident. “We do not comment on foreign media reports,” said a spokesman for the Israeli army.

Reuters reporters at the scene saw smoke rising from the wreckage of the building, which they said had been leveled, and emergency vehicles.

The Iranian embassy in Lebanon strongly condemned the attack. “This barbaric Israeli aggression is a flagrant violation of international law, diplomatic norms and the requirements of the Vienna Convention,” the embassy said, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Israel in Syria has long been attacking targets associated with Iran or Tehran, supported by the Lebanese Hezbollah movement. The attacks have intensified since last October, when the Palestinian terrorist movement Hamas launched an attack on Israel.

Targets near Damascus were also targeted by airstrikes on Sunday. On Friday, airstrikes in northwest Syria killed more than 50 people, including Syrian soldiers and members of Hezbollah, according to SOHR.
