Syrian air defenses intercept ‘projectiles’ coming from Israeli-controlled territory (VIDEOS)

Syrian air defenses intercept ‘projectiles’ coming from Israeli-controlled territory (VIDEOS)

The Syrian air defense has shot down several projectiles launched from the Israeli-controlled occupied Golan Heights, the SANA news agency reported.

An RT source on the ground confirmed that explosions were heard over the city of Damascus.

A military source told SANA that some of the projectiles came from the area near the largely destroyed and abandoned city of Qunaitra, which is located inside the UN-patrolled buffer zone in the Golan Heights.

It is as yet unclear, who launched the projectiles and what the target was.

Damascus has repeatedly accused Israel of targeting the Syrian territory in air raids and missile strikes.

Tel Aviv, however, rarely admits responsibility for the attacks, usually keeping silent about such incidents altogether.
