Syrian air defenses thwart Israeli attack on Damascus

Syrian air defenses of the Syrian Arab Army confronted on Monday the Israeli regime’s aerial aggression the western outskirts of Damascus.

The Syrian forces responded to the Israeli attacks in the skies over the capital, Damascus, for several hours early Monday, the Syrian official news agency SANA reported.

The report did not give details of the possible casualties or damages caused by the aggression.

Since the start of the foreign-backed war on Syria in 2011, the Israeli regime has carried out hundreds of strikes in the country, targeting government troops and their allies.

A few weeks ago, the Syrian air defenses intercepted a number of Israeli missiles over its Hama province.
