  • Zionist entity attacks Syria with missiles, artillery in fresh acts of aggression

The Israeli military has carried out two separate strikes against targets in Syria amid its bloody onslaught against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), citing an unnamed military source, reported that the Israeli enemy launched an aerial attack from the direction of the occupied Golan Heights at around 4:35 a.m. local time (0135 GMT) on Tuesday, targeting some sites on the outskirts of the capital Damascus.

The source added that there were no injuries in the strike, but there were material losses.

Another military official told Russia’s Arabic-language RT Arabic television news network that Syrian air defenses intercepted and shot down most of the incoming Israeli missiles.

The development came only a few hours after Israeli artillery units shelled areas in Syria’s southwestern province of Dara’a.

The Israeli army stated in a statement that the attack was in response to several rockets fired from southern Syria into the Golan Heights.

Israel frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those of resistance fighters, who have played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against foreign-backed terrorists.
