Several missiles were intercepted by the Syrian Air Defenses over Damascus. Israel has been accused of carrying these attacks. The Israeli warplanes that shot these missiles were thought to be flying over Lebanon. Lebanese State News claimed that Israel conducted mock raids over southern Lebanon. An unknown military source told Syrian State TV “Our air defenses confronted hostile missiles launched by Israeli warplanes from above the Lebanese territories and downed most of them before reaching their targets,” Although most of the missiles were intercepted, the raid still wounded 3 Syrian soldiers. Not long after Syria intercepted Israeli missiles, Israel intercepted Syrian missiles. The Israeli military said that they were forced to activate defense systems against an anti-aircraft missile. The missile intercepted by Israel is thought to be launched in response to Israel’s raid on Syria.
