CAIRO (Dispatches) – Syrian Air Defenses thwarted an attack by the Zionist regime on Tal al-Hara in southern Syria and shot down a number of them, Syrian state news agency SANA said early on Wednesday.
Located in Daraa Governorate, Tal al-Hara is considered as a strategic hill overlooking the occupied Golan Heights.
The missile attack resulted only in damage and the Zionist regime then conducted an "electronic war” in which radars were subjected to interference, SANA added.
The attack did cause some material damage, though there were no immediate reports about casualties from the strikes.
On Tuesday evening, Syrian air defense systems intercepted and shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle launched by members of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front.
SANA reported that army forces shot down the drone loaded with bombs over Tal Meleh village in the western-central province of Hama.
On June 2, Syrian air defenses "confronted” and "downed hostile missiles” that were targeting positions in southwestern Damascus.
The aggression killed three Syrian soldiers and injured seven others, while causing some material damage.
A Syrian military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the missiles were coming from the direction of Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
On May 17, Syrian army said its air defense units had brought down several projectiles fired from Israeli-occupied territories.
Some residents in the Syrian capital said several loud explosions were heard near Damascus.
SANA, quoting an unnamed military official, reported that the projectiles came from "the direction of” Syria’s southwestern province of Quneitra near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, adding that the air defense units had "countered” them.
