The missile barrage, reportedly launched against Israeli locations in occupied Golan Heights last night

The Israeli army claimed that some of the missiles fired from Syria had been intercepted and that the level of damage was “low”

“The Israeli Defense Forces attacked tens of military targets belonging to Iran’s al-Quds militia in the Syrian territory,” the Israeli military said in a statement

On the other hand, Syrian air defenses have intercepted several rockets fired from Israeli aircraft after the Tel Aviv regime targeted Syrian army positions in the occupied Golan Heights

Syria’s official SANA news agency reported early on Thursday that a barrage of Israeli missiles were intercepted after some 20 projectiles were launched from Syrian soil at Israeli positions in the Golan Heights in response to an earlier Israeli shelling of Quneitra province

Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and has continued to occupy two-thirds of the strategically-important territory ever since, in a move that has never been recognized by the international community
