Army’s air defense foils 3 Israeli attacks, downs several missiles, hits an aircraft

Damascus, SANA- General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces said that the army’s air defense thwarted on Tuesday dawn three successive Israeli attacks as it downed a number of missiles and hit one of the Israeli aircrafts.

The General Command, in a statement, added that Israeli warplanes on Tuesday at 2:40 a.m. fired several missiles which passed over the Lebanese territories towards al-Qutayfah area in Damascus Countryside as the army’s air defense intercepted the missiles and hit one of the warplanes.

At 3:04 a.m., according to the statement, the Israeli enemy repeated its aggression by firing two ground-to-ground missiles from the area of the occupied Golan, and the army’s air defense intercepted the missiles and downed them.

The statement said that Israeli warplanes repeated the aggression again at 4:15 a.m. by firing four missiles from the area of Tiberias inside occupied Palestine as the army’s air defense intercepted the missiles and destroyed one of them while the remnants fell near one of the military positions, causing only material damage.

The Command indicated that this outrageous aggression reaffirms Israel’s support to the terrorist groups and its desperate attempts to raise their collapsed morale due to the heavy losses inflicted upon them in Harasta area in the Eastern Ghota, and due to the sweeping victories which are being achieved by the Syrian Arab Army in Idleb.

The Command warned against the dangerous repercussions of such hostile acts, holding “Israel” fully responsible for their consequences and affirming its high alert to confront such attacks , continue war against terrorism and to eradicate Israel’s terrorist tools to restore security and stability to all the Syrian territories.
