BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – Minutes ago, a military source in Damascus informed Al-Masdar News that the Syrian Air Defense confronted several Israeli drones near the border of the occupied Golan Heights.
According to the source, the Syrian Air Defense was able to force the Israeli drones to retreat from the Al-Quneitra Governorate to the occupied Golan Heights.
The military source added that the Syrian Air Defense is on high alert in southwestern Syria, as they expect the Israeli Air Force to react in the coming hours or days.
Last week, the Syrian Air Defense was able to shoot down an Israeli F-16 jet that was flying near the Syrian border; this prompted a heavy assault by the Israeli Air Force in southwestern Syria.
This incident marked the most intense engagement between Syria and Israel since the Lebanese Civil War.
