Syrian air defenses responded to a strike Monday over Damascus attributed to Israel, state media reported, in the latest wave of attacks that Western intelligence sources have said were Israeli strikes on a major Iranian-backed ammunition depot on the edge of the capital.
Syria’s official SANA news agency announced that its air defenses were activated by “enemy targets” over the capital city. “Our air defenses responded to missiles fired by the Israeli enemy from the area of Majdal Shams in the occupied Syrian Golan,” the statement said.
