The Syrian Arab News Agency has released dramatic security camera footage showing the moment air defenses brought down an Israeli missile in the al-Kisweh area about 12 km southwest of the capital.
The footage appears to show the flaming wreckage of missile parts as they fall out of the sky following a big explosion.
A medical source told SANA that at least two people, a local man and his wife, were killed in an explosion caused by one of the two interceptions. Western monitoring groups claim Tuesday night’s attacks have also killed Iranian nationals.
Earlier, a source at Beirut International Airport told Sputnik that Israeli jets violated Lebanese airspace at the time of the suspected attack. The Israeli military has refused to comment.
The al-Kisweh area is known to be home to numerous Syrian military bases.
