- Syria Blames Israel for Missile Attacks Near Damascus
SANA news agency quoted a military source as saying the attacks wounded four soldiers.
A missile attack near the Syrian capital of Damascus has wounded four soldiers, according to Syria’s state media which blamed Israel for the attack. Syria’s state news agency SANA, quoting an unidentified military official, said Syrian air defences were able to shoot down most of the missiles before they hit their targets on Thursday.
Damascus residents reported hearing at least one explosion. The missiles were fired from the direction of neighbouring Lebanon and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, state television said. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, reported that military posts near Damascus were targets, but gave no further details.
