Military bases and a munitions depot in Syria have been bombed in airstrikes overnight which the nation has blamed on Israel.
The strikes in Al-Salamiyah were caught on video, with mobile phone footage showing distant fires casting an orange glow into the night sky.
In the clip, pulses of bright light indicate that the bombardment is ongoing, with reports saying a strike hit a munitions store and caused further fires and explosions.
Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has not commented on the allegation and does not usually make statements on military missions, Times of Israel reports.
Two Syrian soldiers were killed, according to state media.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a British-based organisation, claimed “Iranian-backed militias” were targeted, with five militia fighters killed.
According to SOHR, a factory which is used by Iranian militias to store weaponry was bombed, resulting in the violent explosions.
Syria, which has been in the grips of civil war since 2011, was recently the home of terror group ISIS, but an international coalition led by the United States and supported by Iraq and the Syrian Democratic Forces killed most of its jihadis.
Surviving ISIS members, many of whom are being held prisoner, are likely to be executed by hanging under Syrian law.
President Bashar al-Assad said: “Every terrorist in the areas controlled by the Syrian state will be subject to Syrian law.
“This one is very clear vis-a-vis terrorism. They will therefore be brought to justice in specialised courts dealing with terrorism.”
Last week, the US announced more sanctions against the Assad-regime that will cripple its economy.
The US hopes to force al-Assad to negotiate with the United Nations and end the conflict in Syria.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement that the move will put a stranglehold on the funds used to “wage war and commit mass atrocities against the Syrian people”.
He said: “We anticipate many more sanctions and we will not stop until Assad and his regime stop their needless, brutal war against the Syrian people and the Syrian government agrees to a political solution to the conflict as called for by UNSCR 2254,” he said.
