He pointed out that the Syrian Air Defense forces shot down 21 missiles using the Russian-made Buk-M2 and Pantsir-S1 systems.
Yesterday, Friday, a Syrian military source reported that the Syrian Air Defenses had confronted hostile missiles in Damascus skies, and shot down most of them.
The source pointed out that the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack from southeast of the Lebanese capital, Beirut, targeting the vicinity of Damascus.
On the other hand, Israeli media reported hearing strong explosions in the Gush Dan area. The causes were attributed to firing missiles by the Syrian Air Defenses, which created panic and fear and resulted in strong vibrations.
