Syrian air defences intercepted several missiles coming across the occupied Golan Heights from Israel before they hit their targets in the capital Damascus, Syrian state television said on Thursday.

Iran PressMiddle East: A military source announced that at 23.45 p.m. on Thursday, February 13th, 2020, the army observed hostile missiles coming from over the occupied Syrian Golan, and immediately the army air defenses intercepted and downed a number of them before they reach their targets.

SANA reporter said that the army air defenses intercepted hostile targets in the airspace of Damsscus.

The attack came just over a week after a series of strikes on pro-government militias and bases in the same area that were attributed to Israel.

The Israeli military did not comment on the incident.

Videos posted to social media by residents of the area showed explosions in mid-air lighting up the night, apparently as Syrian anti-aircraft missiles burst in the sky.
