DAMASCUS - The Syrian army has pinpointed targets inside Israel to strike in case of further Israeli attacks against Syria, the state TV said Sunday.

The marked targets would be hit if Israel attacked Syria again, the TV quoted some officials as saying, adding that the Syrian troops have been told to respond to any attack without waiting orders from the supreme command.

"The Syrian missiles are ready to hit specific targets in case of any new breaches," the TV said.

Meanwhile, the TV said Syria has given the green light for the Palestinians to "act against Israel" from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Earlier on Sunday, the Israeli air force fired rockets toward a military research facility north of Damascus. The powerful blasts sent plumes of smoke into the sky.

The strike came 48 hours after Israeli aircraft allegedly struck a consignment of Iranian missiles bound for Lebanon's Hezbollah militia.

The target of Sunday's attack was reportedly the Jamraya military research center, which Israel is said to have struck in late January.
