Syrian state TV says an Israeli military rocket has hit a military research centre. Mount Qassioun is the site of military installations that have been used to shell rebel-controlled areas. On Friday, Israeli planes launched a strike inside Syria targeting a shipment of arms destined for Lebanon's Hezbollah. Syrian forces and rebels have been fighting around Damascus for months but with neither side gaining the upper hand. More than 70,000 people have been killed since the conflict erupted in March 2011.
