BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Ministry of Defense announced on Wednesday morning that its air defenses had responded to an Israeli attack against a number of its military sites in the Hama countryside.

The Syrian Ministry of Defense said, in a statement posted on its website by a military source, that “at 00:45 A.M. (local time), the Israeli enemy carried out a new air aggression targeting several sites belonging to the Syrian Army in Al-Salamiyah and Al-Saburah in the Hama countryside.”

The Syrian Ministry of Defense added that “immediately after the discovery of hostile missiles, the air defense dealt with them and worked to pursue and target them, and to drop a large number of them before reaching their targets, as the damage was limited to the material.”

In a video released by the state-owned Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the Syrian air defenses can be seen confronting the hostile missiles over the eastern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

Earlier on Tuesday evening, the Syrian Ministry of Defense announced the killing of two of its soldiers and the wounding of four others in hostile attacks on its locations in the countrysides of Al-Sweida, Homs and Deir Al-Zour.

According to the ministry, the air defenses targeted hostile missiles that were fired from the Al-Sukhnah region of Homs.

Israel does not comment on their operations in Syria, but the Syrian Ministry of Defense has accused them of carrying out last night’s attacks.
