Syria air defenses shot down hostile missiles over Damascus fired from Israeli-occupied Golans

13 Feb, 2020 22:07 / Updated 38 minutes ago

Syria’s air defenses have thwarted a missile attack, intercepting several “hostile targets” launched towards the capital, Damascus, Syrian state media reported.

The attack reportedly did not result in any damage or casualties.

"The hostile missiles came from the occupied Golan ... and they were downed before they reached their targets," a military source said, as cited by Syrian SANA news agency.

The agency reported earlier, citing own correspondent, that the missiles came from the direction of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Israel, which usually does not comment on its bombing incursions into Syria, is known to have repeatedly struck Damascus countryside claiming it was targeting “Iranian positions” there.

Last time Tel Aviv rained down missiles on Damascus just a week ago, forcing the Syrian government to activate its air defenses to repel the attack. While there were no casualties or damage reported as result of the February 6 raid, the Israeli military endangered the lives of some 172 passengers and crew on board of a Damascus-bound Airbus A320 from Teheran. The plane was in a serious danger of being caught in the crosshairs and was forced into an emergency landing, the Russian military reported in the wake of the bombing, accusing Tel Aviv of putting civilian lives at risk.

4. Unconfirmed at best

Video does not show what I would expect to see in terms on intercepts/shootdowns. No follow on evidence of Israeli hardware, not like that cannot be faked too.

Have to wonder if the IAF is spoofing the Russian manned equipment to get them to waste missiles. It is a classic way to bleed an IADS.

7. Not really...I have no doubt that the IAF is messing with the Syrians.

I am doubting they are wasting expensive hardware when they can use cheap electrons instead. It is easy to spoof the Soviet hardware.

Any word on what surface to surface missiles the Israelis supposedly are firing?
