Reports: Syrian Army Intercepts Missiles Near Damascus

Suspected Israeli Missiles Target Syrian Base

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said heavy explosions were heard in the area and electricity was cut off throughout Damascus. The "blatant assault" caused material losses at the base, state media reported.

Israel has also struck several Syrian military facilities since the conflict began, mostly near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The Syrian army has fired at least four surface-to-air missiles at Israeli aircraft as the regime launched an attack against the western countryside of Syria's capital Damascus, reports say.

The missile attack was believed to be the latest in a series of Israeli attacks on Syria, where a six-year civil war has devastated much of the country and displaced millions of citizens. The report claimed that some of the missiles had been intercepted by Syrian air defenses.
