Israel has launched a new barrage of air strikes against Syrian defense positions and warned Damascus not to retaliate against its attacks?
Israel says that its attacks are targeting Iranian defense forces stationed in the Arab republic. Syrian state media has claimed that two waves of attacks have been repelled by Syrian air defenses over the last 48 hours.
The ministry claims that Syrian forces have intercepted 30 Israeli missiles over the past 48 hours.
Israeli attacks killed four Syrian soldiers and wounded six others, and “partially damaged the infrastructure of the Damascus international airport.
During the IDF strike, dozens of Syrian surface-to-air missiles were launched, despite clear warnings to avoid such fire. In response, Israel also targeted several of the Syrian Armed Forces’ aerial defense batteries.
