’Israel’ Strikes again near Damascus
In a new blatant aggression against the Syrian sovereignty, the apartheid "Israeli" entity once again hit the Syrian army bases in Damascus outskirts.
According to the Syrian Army, its air defense systems have hit an "Israeli" aircraft and intercepted a number of rockets fired at targets on Syrian soil as the Zionist entity continues its acts of aggression against the Arab country.
In a statement carried by state media on Tuesday, the army said that "Israeli" jets had fired missiles at the al-Qutaifa area northeast of the capital, Damascus, from inside the Lebanese airspace at 2:40 a.m.
The target of the strike in al-Qutayfa was said to be a weapons depot.
According to the statement, "Israel" then fired ground-to-ground rockets from the "Israeli"-occupied Golan Heights, but the Syrian defenses brought the missiles down.
It said that "Israeli" jets had fired a final barrage of four rockets from inside Occupied Palestine, and that the Syrian air defenses brought down one, but that the others caused material damage.
Syria's official news agency [SANA] cited the general command of the army as saying that the attack had been carried out to raise the morale of the "defeated" terrorists in the Arab country.
"This flagrant aggression reaffirms "Israel's" support for the armed terrorist groups in Syria and its desperate attempts to lift its morale," the statement read.
The "Israeli" military did not comment on the reports.
