Syria says it 'thwarted' Israeli missile attack

2019-06-12 16:28

Syrian Air Defences thwarted an Israeli attack on Tal al-Hara in southern Syria and shot down a number of them, Syrian state news agency SANA said early on Wednesday.

Located in Daraa Governorate, Tal al-Hara is considered as a strategic hill overlooking the occupied Golan Heights.

The missile attack resulted only in damage and Israel then conducted an "electronic war" in which radars were subjected to interference, SANA added.

The latest attack comes a week after Israeli warplanes attacked Syrian military positions near Golan Heights in the country's south, killing three soldiers and wounding seven others.

The Israeli military said the bombing was in response to two rockets fired from Syria at Mount Hermon.

Israel has acknowledged carrying out dozens of air raids in Syria on Iranian targets and Tehran's allies.

Israel says it is determined to prevent its arch foe Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria, where Tehran backs President Bashar al-Assad in the country's eight-year-long war which has killed more than 370 000 people.
