The military source revealed that the Israeli enemy conducted the aerial aggression at approximately 2:20 am from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan, targeting specific points in the vicinity of Damascus. Syrian air defenses managed to intercept and bring down some of the Israeli missiles.

Israel has been carrying out such attacks for several years, targeting what it claims are Iranian-linked sites in Syria. This is due to Iran's increasing influence in the country, which began when Tehran started supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during the civil war that erupted in 2011.
