Syrian state media: Anti-aircraft fires on 'enemy targets' near Damascus

Syrian flag Syrian state media: Anti-aircraft fires on 'enemy targets' near Damascus

"At 11:15 before midnight Israeli warplanes coming from Al-Jalil area launched many missiles towards Damascus area and our air defenses intercepted them and downed majority", a Syrian military source said to SANA.

In November 2018, Syrian state media reported that the country's air defences shot down "hostile targets" flying over the town of Kisweh, just south of Damascus, and "were able to foil its goals" despite the "intensity of the aggression".

Many of them have been in the area south of Damascus.

According to the source, the airstrikes nevertheless caused damage to a warehouse at Damascus International Airport, which continued work following the strike.

SANA reported that "over eight targets" exploded over the capital of Damascus, saying Syrian air defenses intercepted most of the Israeli missiles. Explosions were heard in one of the videos.

The Israeli jets reportedly crossed over to Syria through Lebanese airspace after having heavily roamed over Lebanon on Thursday.

The airstrike came after Israeli Air Force planes staged a similar attack on Syria on 25 December, when at least three Syrian Army soldiers were wounded and an ammunition depot near Damascus destroyed. He said the targets were primarily storage and logistics facilities used by Iran to ship weapons to Hezbollah.

Iranian and Iran-backed groups including Lebanon's Hezbollah have deployed into Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad's government during the war.

In September, a Russian transport aircraft was accidentally downed by Syrian ground batteries in a friendly-fire incident that Moscow blamed on Israel.

If confirmed, this would be the second round of Israeli strikes in Syria since United States announced its intent to withdraw on December 19.

An Israeli official said it was Syrian air defenses that endangered the civilian planes, by firing 30 missiles in response to the airstrike.
