‘Israeli’ Aggression Targets Syria’s Daraa
By Staff, Agencies
‘Israeli’ warplanes launched an airstrike against a strategic area in Syria’s southwestern province of Dara’a, north of the border with Jordan.
Syria’s state-run al-Ikhbariyah Syria television news network said in a newsflash that the air raid took place early on Wednesday and was directed on Tel Haraa, which overlook the ‘Israeli’-occupied Golan Heights.
Meanwhile, the official news agency SANA later reported that the attack was launched at around 1:30 a.m. local time on Wednesday.
Tel Haraa was for many years a major Russian military radar outpost, until foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants overran it in 2014. Syrian government forces managed to establish full control over the strategic area last year.
Earlier on Monday, Syrian air defense systems thwarted ‘hostile' fire in Syria’s western-central province of Hama.
In further details, explosions were heard in the city of Masyaf, and were a result of shells launched by militant groups.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the ‘Israeli’ regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.
The Zionist entity frequently attacks positions inside Syria in what is considered as an attempt to prop up anti-Damascus terrorists.
