BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Ministry of Defense announced last night that several soldiers were wounded as a result of the Israeli airstrikes on the southwestern suburbs of Damascus.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Defense, the Israeli airstrikes wounded seven soldiers that were deployed to the Sahnaya suburb of Damascus.

“At 21:48 this evening, Israeli warplanes over the occupied Syrian Golan directed several explosive rockets towards southern Damascus, and our air defenses responded to them and shot down most of them, and the aggression wounded seven soldiers and caused material damage.”

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) fired several missiles from their aircraft on Sunday evening, targeting the Damascus region of southern Syria.

A source from the Syrian Army said their forces were able to intercept several of the IDF’s missiles, but not all of them.

The source said some of the missiles managed to hit their intended targets, causing a number of explosions that could be heard in the Damascus countryside and city.

Some people have had it so easy for so long that they now think they can get away with anything.

I hope Irans air defenses can shoot down these aircraft, I don’t know why they are not arming Lebanon with anti-air defenses, as if they fear Israel or something… as this is the primary corridor the Jews use to bomb and rape Syrian babies.

Gosh I missed those useless comments 🙂 Most of the time this is all they can actually do, since 90% of their stand-off ordnance gets intercepted in flight before reaching their targets. Sometimes some unlucky SAA/Hezbollah operative happens to be in the kill radius of the few hits the Israelis make around their target (and most often, not even “on” it). Their goal is indeed always to inflict maximum human AND material damage whenever they help their Zionazis proxy groups hand in hand with the KSA/UAE.
