Syria: Air defenses confront an Israeli attack in the airspace of Damascus countryside

Al-Mayadeen correspondent reported, this evening, Friday, that successive explosions were heard in the airspace of the southern countryside of Damascus.


Syrian state media said that "Syrian air defenses are confronting Israeli hostile targets in the sky of Damascus countryside," stressing that "they shot down a number of missiles."


A few days ago, Damascus announced that 5 martyrs and 7 were injured in an Israeli attack on the central region, calling on "the United Nations and the Security Council to condemn Israel's attacks on Syrian sovereignty."


After the attack, the Russian Ministry of Defense revealed that "Israeli F-16 fighters fired 22 missiles at the sites of the Syrian Scientific Research Center in Masyaf and the port of Banias, and that they were confronted and 16 of them were destroyed."
