Israeli missiles flying over Damascus dealt with ‘efficiently’: Syria’s SANA
Tehran (KNA) - Syrian army’s air defense systems have intercepted Israeli missiles flying above Damascus before they could inflict damage on targets in the capital city.
The state news agency SANA said in a report late on Saturday that the ‘hostile targets’ were dealt with efficiently before they could reach their destinations south of Damascus.
The report said the missiles had been fired from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, adding that most of them had been downed in southern Damascus.
“At 23:30 (local time) our air defense forces detected hostile targets coming from the Golan towards the boundaries of Damascus,” said the report, adding, “The aggression was dealt with efficiently and as of now most of the hostile Israeli missiles have been destroyed before reaching their targets.”
The report came after witnesses said they had heard and saw explosions in the sky of Damascus.
