  • The school, which apparently was hit by a missile, is located in a village in Quneitra's northern countryside, the official SANA news agency said, without providing additional detail.

    The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported a missile attack on the area, saying Israel was "likely" responsible. The war monitor said the attack hit a base for pro-Iran militias and a number of people had died as a result.
    The last time Syria accused Israel of carrying out attacks on its territory was in September. SANA then reported a number of missiles had been fired at targets near the city of Aleppo, but most were downed by Syrian defense systems.

    Along with Russia, Israel's nemesis Iran has been a key backer of the Damascus regime in its nine-year-long civil war.
    Israel has carried out hundreds of air and missile strikes on Syria since the civil war broke out in 2011, targeting Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah forces as well as government troops. The Israeli army rarely acknowledges individual strikes.
    Syria's war has killed more than 380,000 people and displaced millions more since starting in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.
