Syrian air defences intercept 'missiles' near Damascus: State media

Syrian air defense systems strike down several missiles over western Damascus — media

The attack took place at 11:15pm (21:15 GMT), it said.

Meanwhile, the state TV said the Syrian air defenses destroyed eight Israeli missiles over Damascus, and cited airport officials as saying the airport was functioning as usual without changes of flights.

The state news agency also quoted a transport ministry source as saying that the airport was running normally.

According to the military source, the Syrian air defenses were "immediately" engaged overnight after a number of Israeli fighter jets came "from the direction of the Galilee (and) fired several missiles towards the vicinity of Damascus".

An AFP correspondent in Damascus heard several loud explosions late on Friday, the worldwide news agency said.

The outgoing IDF chief of staff has acknowledged that Israel has been bombing Syria on a "near-daily" basis for years, in a massive military campaign allegedly aimed at degrading Tehran's supposed military buildup in the region.

Israel has pledged to prevent its main enemy Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria, where it is backing President Bashar al-Assad's regime alongside Russian Federation and Hezbollah.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights explained that Kiswa is "home to positions and storage sites for Iranian and Hezbollah forces allied with Syria's government".

In November 2018, Syrian state media reported that the country's air defences shot down "hostile targets" flying over the town of Kisweh, just south of Damascus, and "were able to foil its goals" despite the "intensity of the aggression".

"We struck thousands of targets without claiming responsibility or asking for credit", Eisenkot stated, confessing to carrying out strikes on a "near-daily" basis.
