Damascus, Dec 29 (UNI) The Syrian Defense Ministry said that Israel has struck several positions in southern Syria, but the country’s air defenses intercepted most of the missiles launched.

Earlier on Thursday, Syrian state news agency SANA reported that Syrian air defense systems were repelling an attack near Damascus, adding that explosions were heard near Syria’s capital.

“Today [on Thursday], around 11:05 p.m. [local time, 20:05 GMT], the Israeli enemy has carried out an air aggression from the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, having struck some positions in the southern region [of Syria]. Our air defense systems have responded to the aggressor’s missiles and shot down most of them,” the defense ministry said in a statement.

The attack has resulted in material damage, the ministry added.
