Hezbollah leader says 55 missiles were fired on Israeli-occupied Golan Heights to mark the start of a ‘completely new stage’ that will go to the ‘greatest extent’ to defend Syria

The leader of Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah group, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said on Monday a missile attack from Syria into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights last week marked a new phase in the Syrian war.

In a televised speech Nasrallah said the rocket attack showed Syria and its allies are ready to go to 'the greatest extent' to defend Syria from Israel.

He did not say who had carried out the attack.

Nasrallah said 55 missiles were launched from Syrian territory in the attack. Israel had said 20 missiles were shot down by its Iron Dome defence system in the attack on Thursday.

Israel has said the attack was carried out by Iran's Revolutionary Guards, which set up Hezbollah in 1982.

Shi'ite Hezbollah is fighting in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad.

Last week, the Israeli military said it attacked nearly all of Iran's military installations in neighbouring Syria in response to the barrage.

Israel said the targets the strikes, its largest in Syria since the 1973 war, included weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centres used by elite Iranian forces in Syria.

It also said it destroyed several Syrian air defence systems after coming under heavy fire and that none of its warplanes were hit.

Iranian media described the attacks as 'unprecedented', but there was no official Iranian comment on Israel's claims.
