BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – The Syrian air defenses confronted several hostile missiles that were fired towards southwestern Syria this evening.

“The Syrian air defenses resisted hostile missiles coming from the direction of the occupied territories,” the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said in a statement.

According to an Al-Masdar News source, the Israeli planes launched several missiles from both the occupied Golan Heights and Lebanon’s Mount Hermon (Jabal Al-Sheikh) region.

Local reports in Damascus said that one missile reportedly hit the Aqraba suburb of Damascus; this is where Hezbollah was previously targeted by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

At least three powerful explosions were reported from Damascus this evening, indicating the high probability that some of the Israeli missiles hit their intended targets.

Earlier in the night, the Syrian air defenses shot down a drone over the city of Jableh in the Latakia countryside.

SANA reported that “anti-aircraft strikes a drone in the atmosphere of Jableh in Latakiacountryside.”

The Syrian defenses also prevented drone strikes over the Hama Military Airport after they shot down two unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) that were traveling south from Idlib towards the installation.

The Idlib offensive starts then ISIS attacks from Al Tanf, mysterious precision drone bombings on Homs Refinery and Hama airbase and now Israel piles on with missile strikes around Damascus. The only thing missing now is a false flag chemical weapons attack to get the US involved again.

Interesting but hardly surprising that the Israeli Air Force engages in attacks on Syria in co-ordination with the Jihadi savages in Idlib.

Just like the Jihadi savages into Palestinian occupied Gaza shooting rockets into Israel, thanks to the Iranian, Turkish and Qatari sponsoring? Hamas even uses M302 (302mm diameter rockets) with a nice “Made in Syria” label on… Remember, it’s Syria that started a war on Israel in 1948 and, unlike Egypt or Jordan, has ever refused to imply in any peace process, in parallel, Syria has backed many terrorist groups doing attacks on Israel, but also on Israeli citizens or not even non-Israeli Jews at world-wide level, especially Hezbollah, PFLP, etc etc… Hezbollah are also jihadi savages using human shields, they… Read more »

Death to zionist thugs!
Zionism is racist ideology proclaming ethnical and religious superiority, zionism is the root and the cause of all other fascist and nazist movements.
Zionism is responsible for ALL the bloodshed of recent ~350 years.

Israel has no jurisdiction or mandate whatsoever to unilaterally enforce anything against countries it partly occupies while violating their airspace and land on top if it. It occupies the Syrian Golan, East Jerusalem and the West Bank in flagrant violation of UN Res. 242. It can have no valid claims whatsoever to enforce anything legally, let alone forcefully while such violations continue. The rogue micro-state also illegally and unilaterally annexed the Golan, in violation of UN Res. 497 that declared it null and void and made the criminal state even more of a pariah on that issue. Besides, the same… Read more »

If I was to mention, especially in the West/America/UK/Australia, that the israeli state is bombing civilians In Syria on days we celebrate Christmas, I bet everything I have I would be labelled an “anti-semite”…

God Bless the good people of Syria, my prayers and wishes are with you and may 2020 be a year of rebuilding, of strength of most importantly of sharing hope.

Καλα κι ευτυχισμενα Χριστουγεννα.

Assad aka Putin follow salami strategy: cut piece by piece. Level one town then move to another until nothing left standing. They slaughtered half million and kicked to streets 12 million people in order that one inbred dictator could sit on his throne.
