Syrian air defenses respond to fresh Israeli aggression

The Syrian air defenses have responded to the Israeli military’s Monday night aggression against the Arab country’s army positions, state media reports.

A Syrian military source says Israeli helicopters launched a missile aggression on some military points in Syria’s Quneitra governorate, causing several material damages, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.

According to the report, the Israeli copter attack took place at 10:40 pm on Monday in the al-Qahtaniyah region of Quneitra, and the losses were restricted to material damages.

The Israeli military has also acknowledged the attacks, saying its fighter jets, attack helicopters and other aircraft were involved in the latest aggression.  It claimed that the targets included “observation posts and intelligence collection systems, anti-aircraft artillery facilities and command and control systems" in Syrian army bases.

Tel Aviv says the Monday raid was launched in response to a Sunday incident near the border between the occupied Palestinian territories and Syria, during which the Israeli military reportedly killed four men, claiming that they were planting explosives.

Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus told reporters on Monday that the men "were inside Israeli territory but beyond the fence" separating the Israeli-occupied sector of the Golan Heights and the Syrian part of the territory.
