Syria’s official SANA news agency quoted an unnamed military source as saying that the new missile attack was carried out early Tuesday from the direction of the occupied Golan Heights, and in addition to Damascus, hit some other areas in the southern part of the country.
The military source added that the country’s air defenses intercepted Israeli missiles, shooting down most of them.
The attack, however, left two civilians dead and caused some material damage.
This was the fourth missile strike carried out by the occupying regime against Syria in less than a week.
The new attack came after the Israeli regime conducted a missile strike against positions across the country’s central Homs province on Sunday, injuring five soldiers.
Two earlier attacks on Damascus were carried out on Thursday and Friday. The Friday attack led to the martyrdom of two members of Iranian military advisory mission that is present in the Arab country at Damascus’ request to help its forces in their fight against foreign-backed terrorist groups.
On Sunday, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) issued a stern warning to Israel, vowing retaliation for Tel Aviv’s killing of the two advisors.
“Undoubtedly, the fake and criminal Zionist regime will receive a response to its heinous crime,” the elite force announced in its statement.
The Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry also reacted to the attacks saying they were an extension of Israel’s fascist approach towards regional countries.
