Suspected Israeli strike near Damascus kills nine pro-regime fighters

Netanyahu in talks with Putin: 'Iran threatens Israel'

On Tuesday, after the president announced that the United States would be leaving the 2015 multilateral deal with Iran - also signed by France, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and Germany - reports emerged about an Israeli strike in Syria. The Syrian Observatory said the casualty number from Tuesday's strike is likely to go up because of a large number of people who were wounded and a number of people who are missing.

The official news agency SANA said the attack occurred in the countryside in Kisweh, just south of Damascus, an area known to have numerous Syrian army military bases. Israel has warned that it will not allow Iran to establish a permanent military presence in Syria.

On Tuesday night, US President Donald Trump announced that his country would abandon the nuclear deal with Iran and expressed concern in Tehran that Tehran meant to use the opportunity to attack Syria.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday evening that Israel has the "obligation and right" to defend itself against Iranian aggression from the Syrian territory.

A barrage of 20 rockets was sacked Wednesday night from Syria towards Israeli military outposts in the Golan Heights.

Mahathir Mahathir, 92, claims win over ruling coalition in Malaysia elections
At the last election in 2013, BN lost the majority vote in its worst performance ever, but pulled in 133 seats. The current Prime Minister, Najib , has been embroiled in a multi-billion-dollar government funding scandal.

"The meetings between us are always important and this one is especially so", Netanyahu said ahead of his departure.

Israel, which nearly never confirms or denies airstrikes in Syria, did not comment on Tuesday's attack.

Israel has not acknowledged those strikes, but admits carrying out dozens of raids in Syria to stop what it says are deliveries of advanced arms to the Iran-backed Hezbollah militia, another of its enemies. The latest attack, carried out on May 9, claimed the lives of seven Iranians in the Syrian air force base T4.

"The Iranians declare their intention to attack us", Netanyahu's office cited him as saying in a statement.
