Israeli Missiles Hit Military Site Near Damascus Outskirts

Israeli missiles attacked a military position near Damascus overnight and Syria’s air defense system thwarted them, Syrian state television said on Saturday.
The “blatant assault” led to material losses at the site in the countryside around the capital, it said, Al Jazeera reported.
An Israeli military spokeswoman declined to comment on reports of the attack.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the missile attack was likely carried out by the Israeli military and targeted several government military bases in Al Kiswah on the southwest outskirts of Damascus.
Sources told Al Jazeera that the Israeli raid was aimed at government military sites and positions of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and that the sound of large explosions caused by the raid was heard in Damascus and its surroundings.
According to Syria’s state-run SANA news agency, pro-government forces managed to destroy two of the missiles in a response attack.
“The Israeli enemy fired after midnight at 12:30 several ground-to-ground missiles at a military location in the countryside of Damascus, where our air defenses intercepted and destroyed two missiles,” SANA cited security sources as saying.
The missile attack was believed to be the latest in a series of Israeli attacks on Syria, where a six-year civil war has devastated much of the country and displaced millions of citizens.
Earlier this year, a senior Israeli official vowed that Israel would bomb Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s palace in Damascus if Hezbollah continued to expand its sway over the war-torn country.
The Syrian conflict began in March 2011 against the Assad government, but it morphed into a civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people.
