Syrian air defense systems have intercepted a number of “hostile” missiles fired by the Israeli military, more than a week after government force foiled another Israeli act of aggression against the country.
Syria’s official SANA news agency cited unnamed military sources as saying early on Wednesday that air defense systems were activated around the strategic Tel al-Hara hill, which overlooks the occupied Golan Heights in the country’s southwestern province of Dara’a.
The attack did cause some material damage, though there were no immediate reports about casualties from the strikes.
On Tuesday evening, Syrian air defense systems intercepted and shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle launched by members of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front.
SANA reported that army forces shot down the drone loaded with bombs over Tal Meleh village in the western-central province of Hama.
On June 2, Syrian air defenses “confronted” and “downed hostile missiles” that were targeting positions in southwestern Damascus.
