'Israel rockets' hit Damascus military site

Syrian state TV says Israeli rockets have hit a military research centre on the outskirts of the capital Damascus.

Huge explosions have been heard in the Mount Qassioun area of the city. The research centre there was the target of a Israeli strike in January.

Syrian freelance journalist in Damascus Alaa Ebrahim said witnesses described the feeling of ''a mild earthquake.''
