The army immediately confronted them with high competence and destroyed the majority of them before reaching their targets, and verification is still going in the outcomes of the aggression.
The Israeli military also released a statement claiming that its fighter jets struck targets belonging to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement south of Damascus.
"In the Adeliyah region, outside of Damascus, an Islamic Jihad compound was struck, used as a hub of Islamic Jihad's activity in Syria," it said.
