The Syrian Army said the country’s air defenses in Homs central province intercepted a number of missiles fired by ‘Israeli’ warplanes.

Syria’s official news agency SANA cited an unnamed military source as saying on Tuesday that the missiles had violated the Lebanese airspace before being confronted by the army air defenses.

“At 20:25 of Tuesday, the ‘Israeli’ warplanes launched a number of missiles, from over Lebanon, into the direction of eastern Homs… immediately, the army air defenses intercepted the hostile missiles and shot down a number of them,” the source said.

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties in the Syrian media.

On March 5, the Syrian army air defenses also confronted an ‘Israeli’ missile aggression on the country’s central and southern regions, preventing the hostile missiles from reaching their targets.

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

The Zionist regime has been a main supporter of terrorist groups that have opposed the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad since militancy erupted in Syria in March 2011.

Syrian has restored many areas once controlled by the terrorist groups. The government and allied forces are currently busy fighting last bastions of militants in the northwestern province of Idlib and areas in the neighboring Aleppo province.
