Syrian military destroys Israeli missiles before reaching Iranian targets

Syrian military destroys Israeli missiles before reaching Iranian targets
August 25, 2019
DAMASCUS (92 News) - The Syrian army destroyed on Saturday the missiles Israel had fired at Iranian forces and installations near Damascus. Syrian state media said Syrian air defences intercepted "hostile targets" over Damascus, the capital, Saturday night. Witnesses in Damascus said they heard and saw explosions in the sky. "The aggression is ongoing and air defences are confronting hostile targets and are downing most of them in the southern region," state media outlet SANA said, indicating areas south of Damascus. The Syrian army said in a statement that "the majority of the Israeli missiles were destroyed before reaching their targets." Conricus, however, said the impact of the Israeli strikes was "significant." However, an Israeli military spokesman claimed Israeli aircraft struck Iranian forces near Damascus that had been planning to launch "killer drones" at targets in Israel, . "The strike targeted Iranian Quds Force operatives and Shiite militias which were preparing to advance attack plans targeting sites in Israel from within Syria over the last number of days," the military claimed in a statement. On Wednesday, the PMF, the umbrella grouping of Iraq's mostly Shi'ite Muslim paramilitary groups, said the United States had allowed four Israeli drones to enter the region accompanying US forces and carry out missions on Iraqi territory. The US-led coalition, in Iraq to fight remnants of the Islamic State group, dismissed the statement and the Pentagon denied it. ADDITIONAL INPUT FROM REUTERS
