Israel fired missiles towards Damascus suburbs, says Syria

Missiles fired from Israel towards suburbs of the capital, Damascus, have been intercepted by Syria’s air defences, state media reported. According to a military statement by the Syrian air defences, the missiles targeted sites in countryside around Damascus and destroyed some of them, state media SANA said.
Two soldiers were injured and some material losses occurred, the statement added.
“The Israeli enemy fired a salvo of surface-to-surface missiles from northern occupied Palestine targeting positions near Damascus,” SANA said, quoting an unnamed military official.
“Our anti-aircraft defences were activated and were able to hit some of the enemy missiles.”
An Israeli military spokesperson said: “We do not comment on reports in the foreign media.”
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said Saturday’s raid destroyed arms and ammunition depots belonging to Iranian forces and allied militias in Qudssaya and Dimas.
Israel has attacked these positions in the past.
On October 14, an Israeli air raid on Iranian positions in central Syria killed nine fighters allied to the Syrian government.
The attacks came days after Syria accused Israel of carrying out an attack in the country’s south.
