Israeli Air Force attacks the Damascus area

Israeli Air Force aircraft launched missile strikes on targets in the Syrian capital on Friday night, The Jerusalem Post reports.

In turn, Syrian state media reports that Syrian air defense forces were involved in repelling the missile attack and shot down several missiles.

According to Israeli media, the Israeli air forces participating in the operation did not invade Syrian airspace. It is assumed that ammunition depots became the target of the strike.

The Israeli military periodically conducts such rocket attacks on Syrian territory. As a rule, targets become targets that contain either Hezbollah Lebanese fighters fighting in Syria on the side of Damascus or Iranian military advisers.
