Just days after a rare daytime airstrike against Hezbollah fighters in Damascus on Saturday, the Israeli Air Force reportedly carried out missile strikes against Iranian proxy militias in the Zakia region outside of Damascus.
Syrian News site SANA reported that surface-to-surface missiles launched from northern Israel struck the Zakia region and caused only “material damage” shortly after 1 a.m. on Wednesday. It gave no reports on casualties or details on the targets hit.
“The Israeli enemy launched an aerial aggression with a number of missiles,” SANA news quoted a military source as saying. SANA made no mention of any air defense missiles being fired.
Official Syrian sources frequently claim to have shot down the majority of missiles launched against them.
