Footage has appeared online showing burning debris on a field near a Syrian air defence battery outside the Damascus suburb city of Kiswah.
The video, taken from multiple angles and distances, shows unidentified men’s efforts to put out the flames next to a cylindrical piece of wreckage using dirt and shovels.
It’s not clear whether the wreckage is a piece of a downed Israeli missile or that of an air defence missile fired off to try to stop the Israeli barrage.
The Israeli military confirmed Saturday that it attacked two Syrian artillery units, an SA-2 anti-aircraft missile battery and multiple observation and intelligence posts in response to shelling from Syrian territory. Earlier, the IDF reported that two projectiles had been fired from Syrian territory in the direction of Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights.
Syrian media reported that the country’s air defences had shot down a number of enemy missiles south of Damascus, and noted that continued strikes killed three Syrian soldiers and injured seven others.
On Sunday night, Syrian military sources said that the Israeli military attacked the T-4 military airbase in Homs, with two of the projectiles said to have been shot down. At least one person was killed and two others were injured in that strike.
Last week, Israel launched a separate attack against a Syrian military target in Quneitra region after an Israeli fighter jet operating in the area was reportedly targeted by the Syrian military. Syrian media reported that several people were injured in that assault.
