Syria’s air defenses intercepted hostile missiles launched by Israeli warplanes, downing most of them.
The official Syrian news agency SANA said air defences “intercepted hostile missiles launched by the Israeli warplanes” from over Lebanese territories, citing a military source.
It added that the majority of them were downed before reaching their targets near the capital Damascus. Three soldiers were injured and an ammunition depot damaged.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said in a statement: “An aerial defense system went off against an anti-aircraft missile launched from Syria. No damage or injuries were reported.”
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor also reported “an Israeli raid”.
