At Least 18 Killed by Car Bomb in Syria

The Syrian government and its allied forces are closing in on the largest remaining rebel-held territory in the country

Israel then fired ground-to-ground rockets from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, but the Syrian defences brought the missiles down, the Syrian army said.

Syrian military sites came under three Israeli missile attacks near the capital Damascus on Tuesday, according to the Syrian military.

There are fears that a government offensive could spark large-scale destruction and displacement, with the province bordering Turkey already home to an estimated two million Syrians, including tens of thousands of people who had fled fighting elsewhere in the country.

Meanwhile, the Kremlin said the number of Russian troops left in Syria is sufficient for fending off any attacks by militants. "We back it up, if necessary, with action", Netanyahu added, without confirming or denying attacks were launched inside Syrian territory.

Syrian state news agency SANA also reported that Israeli jets and missiles struck regime positions overnight northeast of Damascus.

The UK-based Observatory, which relies on a network of activists across Syria, said regime forces had seized more than 60 villages in the area since 25 December in Hama and towards Idlib, the only province nearly completely held by rebels.

That being said, Mango agreed that "everyone is entitled to their opinion about this", even if she happened to disagree. The first apology read "We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top".

Israel's Security Cabinet held a long meeting Sunday on the situation on the Lebanese and Syrian borders.

Monday's advance brought pro-government forces closer to the Abu Zuhour air base in Idlib province, which rebels captured in 2015.

State media said the Syrian army broke through rebel lines Sunday to reach soldiers trapped at the Murakabat vehicle base near Harasta, in the eastern Ghouta suburbs.

On this occasion, Syria says one missile was intercepted and destroyed, while others "fell near one of the military posts, causing only material damage".

The rebels are forces opposing President Bashar al-Assad and an offensive launched by the Syrian army previous year.

The defense ministry said that seven of the drones were shot down while the other six crashed or landed outside the base.
