Syria's air defences intercept suspected Israeli missiles

Syria 'Shoots Down' Targets in Suspected Israeli Attack

Syrian air defence down several 'enemy targets' in southern Syria – reports

The Syrian Flying force triggered its air defenses on Thursday evening to fend off a noticeable strike in Kiswah community, south of resources Damascus, very early records recommended.

Last week IDF sources said security personnel reported the presence of some 20,000 Iranian-trained Syrian armed forces in the Syrian Golan Heights, possibly preparing for a conflict with Israel.

The IDF recovered fragments of a Syrian surface-to-air missile that landed in the Golan Heights following reports of Israeli airstrikes in southern Syria, The Times of Israel reported Friday.

Another missile hit the area of Harfa, where there is a Syrian military base, the Britain-based monitor said.

Israel Police Recommend Indicting Benjamin Netanyahu In Corruption Probe
The prime minister has argued that he is the victim of a left-wing and media conspiracy to topple his conservative government. Israel's attorney general Avichai Mandelblit will make the final decision as to whether to indict the prime minister.

Syrian air defences in September opened fire to intercept alleged Israeli missiles targeting ammunition depots in the north-western province of Latakia, but instead downed a Russian jet.

The reported strikes come days after an i24NEWS report that two new Syrian military divisions, trained and led by officers of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Al-Quds force, had been mobilized to Syria's borders - including the frontier with Israel.

The strikes targeted the region of Al Kisweh, south of the Syrian capital, hitting Iranian militias' targets, according to Al-Hadath's sources.

The Israeli statement neither confirmed nor denied the reports about the air attack in Syria. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack but Israel has carried out dozens of airstrikes on Syria over the past years.

Iran and Russian Federation are the government's key allies in the civil war that has raged Syria since 2011, and Moscow's intervention in 2015 dramatically turned the tables against the rebels.

Russian Federation subsequently upgraded Syrian air defenses with the delivery of the advanced S-300 system, which Damascus had said last month would make Israel "think carefully" before carrying out further air raids.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian Federation his country would continue to hit hostile targets in Syria to prevent Iran from establishing a military presence across the border.

Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad told Xinhua in September that the arrival of Russia's S-300 to Syria would push Israel to reconsider before striking Syria again.
