Syrian air defense destroys Israeli missiles targeting military position in Damascus

Syrian air defense destroys Israeli missiles targeting military position in Damascus”

Tel Aviv warplanes has repeatedly launched missiles from Lebanese airspace against Syrian research facilities and centers, violent actions that were condemned and rejected by the Executive of this Arab country.

Syria's military on January 9 accused Israel of launching missiles targeting military outposts in the area of Qutayfeh, in the Damascus countryside.

The Syrian air defenses destroyed most of the Israeli missiles targeting a military position in the countryside of the Syrian capital Damascus early Wednesday, the Syrian army said in a statement.

"Our air defense systems responded to missiles fired by the Israeli enemy air force from over Lebanese territory on a military outpost in Damascus countryside and destroyed majority", an army statement said. "Our air defence systems blocked them and destroyed majority".

In November, Syria said Israeli jets raided targets in rural areas of the central province of Homs.

"Syria's air defence system blocked some of the missiles, but others hit ammunition depots near Jamraya", said SOHR chief Rami Abdel Rahman.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli army declined to comment on the report.

The Pro-Iran Hezbollah has been fighting alongside Assad's forces since an anti-government uprising began in Syria in 2011.

Meanwhile, the Syrian military affirmed armed forces' readiness to confront any attack and "to foil it and to continue the war against terrorism till eliminating it and restoring security and stability to all the Syrian territories".
