Israel 365: The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that an alleged Israeli missile strike hit near Damascus on Thursday night. The media cited a Syrian army source as saying that air defenses intercepted several Israeli missiles. Lebanese media outlets had reported low-flying Israeli jets above Beirut just prior to the attack. Damascus residents reported hearing at least five loud explosions that shook apartment buildings over a 15-minute time span.

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

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, said at least three missiles targeted Hezbollah weapon depots in the Homs region near the capital Damascus. It is unclear whether the attack caused any casualties.
