According to reports from Damascus, the Syrian air defenses were activated after several missiles were fired by the Israeli Air Force from the occupied Golan Heights at approximately 10:30 P.M. (local time) last night.
The reports said the Syrian air defenses were able to intercept some of the Israeli missiles; however, a number of them still managed to hit their intended targets along the administrative border of the Al-Sweida and Damascus governorates.
The Syrian Arab Army has not revealed the total number of casualties as of yet; however, early reports from Damascus indicate heavy damage to the targeted sites.
Israel’s attack on southern Syria last night comes just a few weeks after they launched a powerful assault on the eastern governorate of Deir Ezzor near the Iraqi border.
This aforementioned attack on Deir Ezzor and the border-city of Albukamal caused significant damage to several buildings in these areas, along with the death of a number of servicemen from the National Defense Forces (NDF).
