A Syrian report affirms that Israel just attacked Syria with missile fire. As we read in a report from the Chicago Tribune:
Syrian state-run media is reporting an Israeli attack near the capital Damascus, saying Syrian air defenses shot down two missiles.
The official news agency SANA says Tuesday night’s attack occurred in the countryside in Kisweh, just south of Damascus. It took place about an hour after President Donald Trump announced he was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, calling Tehran a main exporter of terrorism in the region.
An official with the Iran-led axis of resistance said the strike targeted a Syrian army position and caused only material damage. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give official statements.
There was no immediate comment from Israel, which almost never confirms or denies airstrikes in Syria.
Iran has vowed to retaliate to recent Israeli strikes in Syria targeting Iranian outposts in the country.
Here is a video supposedly showing the aftermath of the missiles from Israel, which Syria claims to have shot down:
The Telegraph reports:
The attack was said to have taken place shortly after Donald Trump announced he was quitting the Iranian nuclear deal.
Syrian state news agency SANA reported the sound of explosions, and said Syrian air defences fired at and destroyed two Israeli missiles.
This news is being reported not too long after Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said that Israel will “liquidate” Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
