Syrian Air Defenses Destroy ‘Israeli’ Missiles Over Aleppo
By Staff, Agencies
Syrian air defenses thwarted a new ‘Israeli’ act of aggression against the war-ravaged Arab country, shooting down a number of hostile missiles in the skies over the strategic northwestern province of Aleppo.
Syria’s state-run television, citing a military statement, reported that the ‘Israeli’ aircraft fired several missiles at areas in the vicinity of Aleppo at 1:30 a.m. local time on Friday, but most of the projectiles were intercepted and destroyed before hitting any of their targets.
The statement said that the attack targeted al-Safirah town, located 25 kilometers east of Aleppo city.
Late on September 2, Syrian air defense systems engaged hostile targets near the Tiyas Military Airbase, also known as the T-4 Airbase, in the country’s central province of Homs.
Syria’s official news agency SANA reported at the time that Zionist warplanes fired missiles from the direction of al-Tanf region in southeastern Syria.
The report, quoting an unnamed Syrian military source, added that most of the missiles were shot down and the rest caused only material damage.
The development came only two days after two Syrian soldiers were martyred and seven others sustained injuries in an ‘Israeli’ missile attack against military sites in southern Damascus.
The assault was reported to have been launched from the occupied Golan Heights.
The Zionist entity frequently attacks military positions inside Syria.
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.
