Syrian air defense systems intercepted missiles fired by Israeli warplanes toward the capital Damascus on Friday night and destroyed most of them.

Iran Press/Middle East: “The results of the aggression so far were limited to a strike on one of the warehouses at Damascus International airport,” SANA news agency reported, quoting an unnamed military source.

The source said that “at 11:15 before midnight Israeli warplanes coming from Al-Jalil area launched many missiles towards Damascus area and our air defenses intercepted them and downed most of them.”

He added that damages of the aggression were limited to ammunition warehouse in Damascus airport.

Earlier, on December 26, Syrian air defenses confronted a number of hostile flying objects over the countryside west of Damascus.

The Tel Aviv regime has recently increased its airstrikes on Syria. The Syrian government has on multiple occasions slammed the Israeli regime's aggression and also warned about the “dangerous repercussions” of Israeli airstrikes on its territories.

Israel is widely believed to have been providing weapons to anti-Damascus terrorists and militants as well as medical treatment to Takfiri terrorists wounded in Syria inside the occupied Golan Heights.   101/ 211
