Syria says it shot down 3 Israeli missiles near Damascus

An Israeli F-16 prepares for take-off during the ‘Blue Flag’ exercise

Israel has carried out a number of airstrikes against suspected arms shipments believed to be bound for Lebanon's Hezbollah militant group, which is fighting alongside Syrian government forces.

"We will not allow this regime to establish a military presence in Syria, as its declared objective, for destroying our state", he said in a video tweet published Saturday night.

Syrian government negotiators are still unsure whether they will return to continue peace talks in Geneva after they flew back to Damascus this weekend, a government source said on Monday.

Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah movement are allied with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria's civil war. He said, however, that the decision to return to peace talks this week was ultimately for Damascus to make. "Damascus is still thinking about the feasibility of its participation", the government source said.

The office of United Nations special envoy Staffan de Mistura, who is mediating the talks, made no announcements Monday on the planned return to negotiations.

Nasr Hariri, head of the opposition delegation, told a Geneva news conference on Monday night that he is aiming for Assad's removal as a result of negotiations.

Most of the attacks took place on Sunday.

SANA says the attack occurred early on Tuesday but hasn't said whether there were casualties.
