The Syrian regime’s media outlets reported that Israeli raids targeted the vicinity of Damascus in the early hours of yesterday morning using missiles which had been fired from the direction of the occupied Golan Heights.

The official news agency, SANA, reported that the Israeli warplanes carried out raids around Damascus, and were confronted by Syria’s air defences. Two people are said to have been injured.

The agency broadcast footage of air defence missiles being fired at targets it said were hostile over Damascus.

SANA quoted a military source saying: “At about 00:25 a.m. on Wednesday, the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack with missiles from the direction of the north of the occupied Syrian Golan, targeting some points in the vicinity of Damascus.”

“The raid resulted in the injury of two soldiers and some material losses,” the source said, adding: “Our air defences intercepted the aggression’s missiles and shot down most of them.”

For its part, the Syrian Observatory said, “Israeli missiles targeted military sites near Al-Dimas airport and the Al-Saboura area, where the Fourth Division Brigades and warehouses of the Lebanese Hezbollah are located.”

It pointed out that the bombing “led to the outbreak of a fire in the targeted sites” but there was no information about human losses.
