Israelis Attack Several Sites in Syria, Wounding a Soldier: Syrian Military Says

Israeli Regime Missile Attack Kills Three Syrian Soldiers Near Damascus

Alwaght- Israeli airstrikes hit several sites in southern Syria early Sunday wounding a soldier, Syrian state media reported.

State news agency SANA, citing an unnamed military official, said air defenses shot down some of the missiles, which came from the direction of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights at around 12:42 a.m. local time. The strikes led to “material losses” and the wounding of a soldier, the statement said.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor, said Israeli strikes also hit two military sites in the Qalamoun mountains northeast of Damascus. 

The observatory said the strikes represented the 24th time Israel has struck inside Syria since the beginning of 2024.

There was no immediate statement from Israeli officials on the strikes. Israel frequently launches strikes on targets in Syria but rarely acknowledges them. The strikes have escalated over the past five months against the backdrop of the war in Gaza and ongoing clashes between Hezbollah and Israeli forces on the Lebanon-Israel border.

Most recently, the regime staged an airstrike against a suburb of the Arab country's capital of Damascus late last month, similarly causing some material damage.

Also last month, at least three people were killed when an Israeli unnamed aerial vehicle carried out a strike against the western Syrian province of Homs, close to the border with Lebanon.
