Syria’s air defenses have thwarted a missile attack, intercepting several “hostile targets” launched towards the capital, Damascus, Syrian state media reported. The attack reportedly did not result in any damage or casualties.
“The hostile missiles came from the occupied Golan… and they were downed before they reached their targets,” a military source said, as cited by Syrian SANA news agency.
The agency reported earlier, citing its own correspondent, that the missiles came from the direction of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Israel, which usually does not comment on its bombing incursions into Syria, is known to have repeatedly struck the Damascus countryside, claiming it was targeting “Iranian positions.”
Footage has emerged online showing the moment Syria’s air defenses were engaged to take out the missiles.
