BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted a rocket allegedly launched by Syria over its Mount Hermon ski resort in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, footage showed on Sunday.
Footage shows smoke trails and the alleged moment of interception as ski resort guests’ cries are heard in the background.
The Israel Defence Forces confirmed the incident via its Twitter page.
The attack came after Damascus accused Israel of targeting its southern region with warplanes.
According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), Syria’s defence system had “prevented it [the Israeli attack] from achieving any of its objectives.”
