DAMASCUS (Dispatches) – The Syrian air defenses responded to a Zionist attack in the capital Damascus on Saturday, SANA news agency reported.
The missile attack was launched from inside the occupied territories against positions in the countryside of Damascus, SANA said.
People in the capital said they heard the sound of explosion.
The Zionist regime has repeatedly targeted different positions in Syria during the night. This time, the attack took place in daylight.
Citing a military source, SANA said that the Zionist regime launched missiles from the northern side of occupied Palestine and targeted some points in Damascus countryside around 11 a.m. local time.
The source said that the country’s air defense systems were activated against “hostile targets from the direction of occupied lands,” and a number of the missiles were “repelled.”
The source also said the aggression injured two soldiers and caused some material damage.
Syrian state television had earlier reported of explosions heard in the countryside surrounding the capital.
The latest attack came just a few days after the Syrian media said Zionist regime helicopters had hit three targets on the outskirts of the town of al-Baath as well as other locations in southern Syria.
Two of the sites targeted on Monday were observation posts reportedly used by the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, while the third target was a site next to a Syrian military facility.
The Tel Aviv regime mostly keeps quiet about its attacks on Syrian territories, which many view as knee-jerk reaction to the Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism.
The occupying regime has been a main supporter of terrorist groups that have opposed the government of President Bashar al-Assad since foreign-backed militancy erupted in Syria nine years ago.
