Syria Air Force repels Israeli missile strike near Damascus

Tasnim – Syria’s air defense system repelled a missile attack by Israel in the vicinity of Damascus in the early hours of Thursday, managing to shoot down most of the missiles before they reached their targets.

The missiles were launched from the occupied Syrian Golan and southern Lebanon targeting al-Kiswa area, Marj al-Sultan, Baghdad Bridge and south of Izraa, SANA reported.

The report added that most of the hostile missiles were shot down before reaching their targets.

Israel has carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria, including in the Golan Heights, most of them against what the Tel Aviv regime claims to be the positions of pro-Syrian forces.
