Syria Air Defenses Intercept Several Israeli Projectiles

Fact checked

The Syrian army said that its air defense system downed several projectiles fired from Israeli-occupied territories on Friday.

According to Syria’s official news agency SANA the Israeli aerial aggression occurred on Friday night.

“Our air defense systems intercepted luminous objects coming from the occupied territories (Israel) and downed several of them,” SANA said quoting a regime military source.

Other reports, quoting some residents in the Syrian capital, said several loud explosions were heard near Damascus.

Haaretz reports: The Syrian Arab News Agency, Syria’s state news agency, quoted a Syrian military source who said that the air defense system was activated against missiles fired at western Damascus from the direction of  Quneitra, in the Golan Heights, within Israeli territory. A number of missiles were intercepted.

The state television channel showed footage of the night sky with a point of light firing up into it and the sound of shooting. It did not immediately report casualties or material damage. 

Residents in Damascus said they heard several loud blasts shortly before the television news bulletin that reported the incident. 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor affiliated with the Syrian opposition, reported that three explosions were heard in southern and southwestern Damascus. According to the report, the areas that were targeted have an Iranian military and Hezbollah presence.

Other reports associated with the opposition say that the strikes were carried out from Lebanese airspace.  

The strikes follow a statement given to the Guardian Thursday night, in which a diplomatic source said that a convoy of Iranian missiles was transferred into Syria via Iraq’s Anbar province last week. The source said that Israeli and U.S. intelligence were unaware of the transfer.


  1. This kind of shit is exactly why the entire industry is at a standstill compared to Trump’s first year when there was lots of hope. Trump is blocked from being/getting anything done just like Regan and his three part plan. Liberals only allowed vital stuff to be cut from the budgets in order to blame him back in the 80s. However the few things Regan did right didn’t fully kick in till the 90s and Clinton got the left overs. The moment he raised taxes and did social reform in the mid 90s we went straight to a recession. There never really was a ‘Clinton surplus’. We were in debt and having budget cuts to the police and schools. One of our schools in Monitor Oregon folded back then. In Mcminnville Oregon police stopped responding to car thefts unless it was violent which Dad did relief pharmacy there often so he for the first time got ‘The Club’ to lock the steering wheel and also doubles as a bat.

    Churches were being shut down by the IRS in a witch hunt and if you spoke out against abortion you were immediately targeted by them and be targeted with lawsuits. We were that close to a total lock down in the 90s. Even as a little kid I saw the signs of the times from reading newsletters around the US and world and knew it wasn’t going to end well while the young millenials were drinking and cheering much like the days of Noah. Churches were going more then ever to 3rd world countries to help poor people as their own governemnts were too f’ed up to fix things properly.

    Now they are back to doing it again.

  2. When the towers fell in 01 we actually dove to 1930 depression levels. Instead of artificially fixing it he told people to not be afraid to travel and spend money which they did just not by aeroplane. The media fear porns of ‘tourism never coming back’ or ‘What’s going to happen to vacation resorts!” never really panned out. The next year tourism jumped locally. However a lot of stores that were hurting finally closed for good like Merveyn’s and Emporium,etc. Meyer and Frank’s eventually went too and Macy’s took over everything. Now Macy’s is getting slapped.

    A lot of these companies gave political donations en mass to the Hillary campaign during the last election WHILE they were in chapter 11. Now they are ‘mysteriously’ folding with Amazon getting the blame. Meanwhile Amazon has cut back a lot of their own staff and no longer taking care of their webpage in the last few years. Their webpage is as bad as Google now. Amazon is bringing back brick and morter stores under their own name like the ones they supposingly killed.

    The only good thing is they take care of your products if the seller gives you a broken one. I had two broken things one was a toy which broke when I used it yet Amazon took it back and forced the seller to give my money back as I was using an Amazon gift card they were able to immediately put it back in within 2 days and it was a 60$ toy too. (No I’m not part of Prime)

    Also this time of the year and in summer things come in unusually fast. I ordered an Amiibo from back east and usually it will take 2 weeks but mine came within 4 to 6 days. Once due to timing I got a package on a Sunday delievered at 4PM to our neighborhood mailbox.
