Syrian media claims military intercepted Israeli missiles in attack on Syrian capital.
Syrian air defense systems intercepted missiles near Damascus following an attack, Syrian media reported. The echo of explosions was heard throughout the Syrian capital.
A special broadcast was shown on Syrian television, during which it was said that “Israel continues its aggression.”
The report quoted a military source as saying that the Israeli attack was directed against weapons depots and that three soldiers were wounded.
Israel does not respond to such accusations as a matter of policy.
At the same time, Lebanese media reported that the Israel Air Force was operating in southern Lebanon, but it was unclear whether there was any connection between the reports.
The IDF stated that a missile defense system was activated against an anti-aircraft missile fired from Syria.
Yesterday, Netanyahu referred to the attacks in Syria and Israel’s military situation, saying, “Israel is ranked eighth in the world, and it is unbelievable. It is because we are systematically nurturing the strength of the IDF and the strength of the security bodies – the Mossad and the Shin Bet – which carry out daring operations for the security of the State of Israel and the safety of its citizens.”
“We are continuing with a firm hand to prevent Iran’s military buildup in Syria, and we are about to complete the dismantling of the tunnels in which Hezbollah has invested so much, just as we are about to end the disarming of tunnels in which Hamas has invested so much,” Netanyahu said.
“The IDF is prepared and prepared for every scenario, and I take this opportunity to salute the commanders and IDF soldiers who guard us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.” (Click to Source)
