TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Syrian air defenses targeted projectiles fired from the direction of Israel for the second night in a row, Syrian state media said.
The projectiles came from “occupied territory” into the airspace in southern Syria, state news agency SANA said on Saturday.
Israel’s military declined to comment on the report.
Late on Friday, Syrian air defenses had intercepted "hostile targets" coming from Israel.
"Aerial defenses targeted luminous objects coming from the occupied territories, shooting down a number of them," a military source told SANA.
In recent months, foreign-backed Takfiri terrorists have been suffering heavy defeats against Syrian government forces, backed by the Russian air force and Iranian military advisers.
Israel frequently attacks positions inside Syria in what is considered as an attempt to prop up anti-Damascus terrorists.
