Alleged Israeli airstrikes seem to have been the cause of explosions heard in Damascus on Monday afternoon, Syrian state media reported based on initial information. The strikes reportedly targeted sites near Damascus and al-Dimas.

One Syrian soldier was injured, and some material was lost as a result of the alleged Israeli attack, according to Syrian state media. Israeli missiles were allegedly intercepted by Syrian air defense systems, according to the report.

The alleged airstrikes comes just days after an alleged Israeli missile strike targeted sites near the Damascus and al-Dimas airports. That airstrike was the first strike reported in over a month.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported on Sunday that a YLC-6M radar station belonging to the Syrian military was destroyed in those strikes.

Israeli airstrikes are rarely conducted in the daytime, with most strikes being conducted in the evening or overnight.

The last daytime strike blamed on Israel was reported in late August with the strikes reportedly targeting sites near Masyaf, including the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center.
