Syria’s air defenses shot down a number of ‘Israeli’ missiles near the capital, Damascus, on Tuesday.

According to state-run SANA news agency, which cited a military source, “The ‘Israeli’ enemy perpetrated a missile aggression from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights on some targets in the surroundings of Damascus,” late on Tuesday.

The source said Syria’s army air defenses confronted the aggression and shot down most of the missiles, adding that losses were restricted to materials.

Meanwhile, Zionist media claimed that the missiles targeted a weapons shipment that had arrived at the Damascus International Airport earlier in the day.

The Zionist occupation regime frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those affiliated with the resistance movement, which has played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against foreign-backed terrorists since 2011.

The Tel Aviv regime mostly keeps quiet about the attacks on Syrian territories which many view as knee-jerk reaction to the Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism in country.

Syria has on several occasions called on the United Nations Security Council [UNSC] to condemn the ‘Israeli’ attacks on its territory, urging the world body to act decisively to stop the occupying regime’s practices.
