Syria air defenses engage ‘hostile targets’ outside Damascus – state media
Syrian air defenses have intercepted several “hostile targets” over southern Damascus, state news agency SANA reported. There have been no details as to the origin of the reported attack.
Citing its own correspondent, SANA reported on Tuesday night that Syrian missile defenses shot down several targets as they were approaching the area to the south of the capital.No details as to the source of the attack has been released so far. It also remains unclear if there have been any casualties or material damage as a result.
The new attack comes just a day after explosions were heard in the vicinity of the Damascus International Airport, according to multiple reports. While the Syrian government has remained tight-lipped about the incident, reports on social media allege that the Syrian capital was subjected to an Israeli strike.
Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) routinely rain down missiles on the Syrian territory under the pretext of targeting Iranian militias, allies of the Syrian government in its fight against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) and other terrorist groups.
