BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) tweeted this evening that one Syrian surface-to-air missile was launched towards an open area in the occupied Golan Heights.
“During a Syrian surface-to-air missile launching, one launch was identified towards an open area in the Golan Heights. At this point, it remains unclear if the launch indeed landed in Israeli territory. IDF troops are searching the area,” the IDF Spokesperson tweeted.
They would add that “reports regarding an IDF aircraft or an airborne IDF target having been hit are false.”
The Israeli Defense Forces did not say whether or not they were behind tonight’s attack on the southwestern countryside of Damascus.
The Syrian Ministry of Defense has yet to issue an official statement regarding tonight’s attack.
