Targets in southern Syria were attacked by Israeli Air Force jets and surface-to-surface missiles, causing material damage, the Syrian army command said in a statement.
Earlier, Syrian state media reported that air defense systems were repelling an Israeli air attack in Quneitra province in southern Syria. The Israeli army told Sputnik that they would not comment on foreign media reports about the IDF attack on targets in the Syrian province.
Syrian state news agency SANA reported that at 10:42 pm, Israel "carried out an aggression" from the airspace of the Golan Heights, using air-to-ground and surface-to-surface missiles to attack targets in the south.
According to the statement of the army command, the Syrian air defenses shot down most missiles. Syria sustained material damage.
The Syrian leadership has repeatedly demanded that the UN Security Council exert pressure on Israel to stop strikes on Syrian territory since such actions violated Syria's sovereignty and led to an increase in tension in the region.
