SOHR: Missile strikes on Israeli, Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria, Damascus
In Syria, Israel has launched new missile strikes on Iranian and Hezbollah targets. Syrian military sources say the country’s air defense has repulsed an Israeli missile strike south of the capital, Damascus.
Syrian military sources said that the Israeli air strike was carried out on Monday from the Golan Heights and targeted some places south of the capital Damascus. The Syrian air defense system shot down most of the Israeli missiles without any casualties. According to Syria’s SANA news agency, the Israeli missile strike caused financial losses.
Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the human rights situation in Syria, said Israel had fired missiles at locations belonging to Iran and Lebanese Hezbollah. According to the human rights group, the government’s air defense batteries are located in the Kiswa area, south of the capital Damascus.
Rami Abdul Rehman said the government’s air defense system had managed to shoot down several of the missiles, but the damage showed that at least two missiles had hit their targets in those areas.
It should be noted that Israel is bombing the bases of Hezbollah militia of Iran and Lebanon in the interior of Syria without accepting responsibility for these attacks.
