DAMASCUS, Syria, The Syrian air defences, intercepted Israeli missiles over the capital, Damascus, on Saturday night, the Syrian army said.

The air defences intercepted Israeli missiles, which were fired from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The statement said, most of the Israeli missiles were intercepted, before they could reach their targets. The report said that, the attacks took place in the southern countryside of Damascus.

The attack is the latest in a series of Israeli missile fire targeting Syria.

Last month, four civilians were killed in Syria’s Homs, as a result of an Israeli missile strike.

On June 12, the Syrian air defences intercepted Israeli missile attack before day break, in the southern province of Daraa, causing damage.

On June 4, Israel targeted the T-4 air base in the central province of Homs.

On June 2, a total of three Syrian soldiers were killed and seven others wounded, by an Israeli missile strike on military sites, in the south of the country.

The Syrian government has repeatedly charged, Israel supports the terror groups in Syria and its repeated strikes are nothing but a way to lift the rebels’ morale.

Israel has conducted hundreds of airstrikes in Syria throughout the eight-year conflict, most of them against what it says were targets of Iranian-backed militia groups, such as the Lebanese Hezbollah.
