BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:25 A.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces came under attack in southwestern Damascus last night when a number of missiles fired from the Israeli-occupied Jabal Sheikh (Mount Hermon) region.

According to a military source near the scene of the attack, several missiles fired from occupied Jabal Sheikh targeted Al-Kisweh and its surrounding areas, causing a number of explosions that could be heard from the capital city.

The source said some of the missiles, which were said to have been fired from an Israeli aircraft, managed to hit their intended targets in southwestern Damascus, while others were intercepted by the Syrian air defenses.

There has been no comment on the total number of casualties as a result of this latest attack on southwestern Damascus; however, it is believed that some soldiers were wounded.

The Israeli Ministry of Defense has yet to comment on the accusations from Damascus that they were culprits of last night’s attack.

Israel usually does not comment on these attacks, despite accusations from Russia and Syria.

Something a bit fishy about that footage. The time from the flash to hearing the bang is too short by far, it is almost instantaneous. The speed of sound is 343 m/s and I am assuming the missile was at least a few km away.

Security self destruction of the SAMs when they reach their maximum range! If anything was shot down, we’d see it coming down in flames after a double blast…
