The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights revealed that Israeli airstrikes targeted an ammunition depot belonging to the Lebanese Hezbollah militia in Damascus countryside.
The observatory said, in a statement, on Friday, that there were significant material losses as a result of the Israeli bombing, including a warehouse of missiles for Hezbollah.
The Britain-based observatory indicated that the Israeli raids targeted sites of Hezbollah and other Iranian militias in the countryside of Homs and the southern suburbs of Damascus.
And on Thursday, Syrian TV announced, the air defenses responded to an air attack in the sky of Damascus.
But minutes later, the Syrian news agency confirmed that Israeli planes had targeted with missiles some points in the vicinity of the cities of Damascus and Homs.
SANA pointed out that “the Syrian air defenses shot down most of the missiles.”
In turn, the German news agency quoted residents living in areas south of the capital, Damascus, as saying that they saw a number of missiles launched by the Syrian army towards areas south and west of the capital, Damascus and that a number of them destroyed targets in the air and saw missiles exploding.
The residents confirmed that they saw a number of rockets falling in areas south of the capital and that the flames were launched from the sites that were bombed.
SANA pointed out that the Syrian air defenses fired more than 10 missiles to confront the missiles that targeted the vicinity of the capital.
Over the past year, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has counted 39 strikes, during which Israel targeted Iranian militias on Syrian territory.
