JPost: Explosions were heard in Syria’s capital, Damascus, on Saturday after Syrian air defenses intercepted multiple surface-to-surface missiles fired toward the countryside from the direction of “northern occupied Palestine,” the state-run SANA news agency reported.

“The air defenses of the Syrian Arab Army repelled an Israeli aggression on areas in the Damascus countryside,” SANA said.

The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:1

Two Syrian soldiers were wounded and “material losses” were sustained, according to the report.

The news comes amid increasing Israeli military activity in Syria.
