Syrian air defense forces repelled an air attack from the Golan heights. It is reported by news Agency SANA, citing a military source.
According to media reports, the goals were struck in the skies over the province of Quneitra (South-West of the country — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) and the city of Damascus. About who was behind the missile attack, the Agency said.
According to TV channel Al Hadath, a suburb of Damascus shelled the Israeli side. It is reported that they were attacked military warehouses and facilities.
The head of the NGO “Syrian monitoring centre for human rights” Rami Abdul Rahman said that in the suburbs of Damascus, explosions were heard from the falling rockets. According to him, the last powerful explosion happened in the suburb Germana.
Belonged to Syria since 1944, the Golan heights were captured by Israel in the six day war of 1967. Israel’s Parliament in 1981 adopted the law “On the Golan heights”, which unilaterally proclaimed sovereignty over the territory. The UN security Council resolution 497 then recognized the annexation invalid, Damascus continues to consider the territory of their own.
