Explosions heard in Damascus following air strike attributed to Israel


Syrian media reported on Friday evening that the country’s anti-aircraft systems had been activated following an air strike which was blamed on Israel.

The reports also said that explosions were heard over the capital, Damascus.

Syria’s official news agency, SANA, reported that “the air defense systems were activated against an Israeli attack over the skies of Damascus.”

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Iranian media reported that the air strike was aimed at Iranian targets, including military depots and trucks.

Then behold, at eventide, trouble! And before the morning, he is no more. This is the portion of those who plunder us, And the lot of those who rob us.” Isaiah 17:14

Another report claimed that one of the targets of the attack was also a Syrian anti-aircraft battery south of Damascus.

There was no immediate information on damages or injuries.

Friday’s air strike comes a month after Syria claimed that five soldiers were killed in an Israeli attack on the Damascus airport.
