- Israeli Warplanes Strike Damascus, Air Defenses Destroy ‘Most’ of Hostile Missiles (VIDEO)
Syrian air defenses have repelled an Israeli raid, intercepting several “hostile missiles” over southern Damascus, and destroying majority of them before the projectiles hit the ground, state news agency SANA reported.
Citing a Syrian military source, SANA reported on Tuesday night that Syrian missile defenses came under “a heavy attack” by Israeli warplanes that targeted the Damascus area from the Israeli-controlled part of the occupied Golan Heights and Lebanese airspace near the town of Marjayoun.
A video purporting to show the aftermath of the attack has emerged on social media. Footage posted by Syrian journalist Majd Fahd shows a huge ball of fire engulfing the building in southern Damascus, while loud sounds of explosions could be heard in the background.
