He said Lebanese Hezbollah fighters and Iranian military officials often visit the site.

It warned of the "dangerous repercussions of such hostile acts on the security and stability of the region".

The Observatory for human rights in Syria reports that two military sites were attacked.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said the incident in Khan Sheikhoun - which prompted the U.S. to launch a missile strike on an airbase - was a "fabrication".

Last month, in an interview with Israel's Haaretz newspaper, former air force chief Amir Eshel said Israel had attacked at least 100 Syrian and Hezbollah arms convoys since 2012. He said those killed and wounded were Syrians, adding that it was not immediately clear if there were casualties among Iranian and Hezbollah operatives.

A major precedent was exposed exactly a decade ago by an earlier Israeli attack, which destroyed a Syrian nuclear plant built by North Korea on September 7, 2007. Damascus has always denied using chemical weapons.




"It's another level of interfering", Amidror stated, adding that it was the first time that the target which was attacked is a formal Syrian facility, not just a warehouse but one responsible for producing chemical weapons, rockets and missiles.

The Syrian army said that Israeli air strikes targeted a military post near Masyaf in the Hama province on Thursday morning, killing two of its troops.

Israel - as is its custom - has not commented on the strike in the early hours today, at Masyaf, near the city of Hama.

Syria's army operates a military facility north of Masyaf that includes a training camp and a branch of the Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC). Israel claims that Iran is building missiles in Syria and Lebanon for the Islamist militant group.

The Golan Heights, internationally recognized as Syrian territory, was seized by Israel during the Six-Day War in 1967. He has said that is something Israel can not accept.

"We are determined to prevent our enemies harming, or even creating an opportunity to harm, the security of Israeli citizens", Avigdor Lieberman said in Hebrew, in remarks broadcast on Israeli television.
