Syrian air defenses shot down several Israeli missiles over Damascus as well as Homs amid multiple reports of loud explosions in the area.
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported the Israeli aggression, saying it had killed four civilians including a child.
“The air defenses of the Syrian Arab Army after midnight intercepted hostile missiles fired by Israeli warplanes towards some military positions in Homs and the surroundings of Damascus as a number of civilians, including a child, were martyred in the aggression and others were injured in Sahnaya town in Damascus southern countryside,” SANA said.
It quoted a military source as saying: “Our air defenses intercepted hostile missiles fired by Israeli warplanes from the Lebanese airspace towards some of our military positions in Homs and the surroundings of Damascus.”
21 others, including children, were injured in Sahnaya town in Damascus Countryside due to the aggression, the Syrian agency said, adding that the injured were rushed to the hospitals where they received the required treatment.
Material damage was also inflicted on a number of civilians’ houses in Sahnaya town due to the pressure which resulted from the explosions.
The glass of the houses was shattered causing the injury of a number of people, SANA added.
