Israel has struck a residential building in Damascus housing a commander of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group with two missiles, killing two people, Syria's state-run news agency said.
SANA said six people were also killed in the early morning attack Tuesday on the building in the Mezzeh area of Damascus. It said a third missile landed in a suburb of the capital, in Daraya, near Damascus.
It was not immediately clear if the Islamic Jihad commander, identified as Akram al-Ajouri, was among those killed in the attack. Al-Ikhbariya channel said al-Ajouri's son was among those killed.
