Syria Claims to have Intercepted an Incoming Israeli Missile

A Syrian military source confirmed that an incoming missile infiltrated his country’s airspace from northern Lebanon, before Syrian air-defense-batteries managed to intercept the hostile projectile.

According to the source, who was quoted by Syria’s state news agency SANA, data collected from the missile’s trajectory indicated that the presumed target is situated in the Masyaf area of Hama Governorate, a location known for housing multiple Iranian military installations that frequently draw Israeli bombardments.

The Syrian military source alluded to Israeli responsibility, claiming that ‘regularly when Damascus makes gains against terrorist groups, U.S. and Israeli attacks on Syria coincide.’

While the IDF spokesperson’s unit told TV7 that it ‘does not respond to foreign reports on its operations’; an Israeli defense official rejected the repeated Syrian claims regarding any connection between Jerusalem’s activities to thwart Iran’s military entrenchment within Israel’s northern neighbor, “and beyond.”

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, refused to refer to last night’s attack, but insisted that the Syrian regime is well acquainted with Israel’s military superiority that allows it to destroy any target the moment it poses a risk to the security of the Jewish State.

Meanwhile, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights referred to last night’s incident as a ‘presumed Israeli attack’. While it revealed that the intercepted projectile was downed in the vicinity of Masyaf city, yet there were no reports of any casualties.
