Israeli occupation launches aggression on Damascus: Syria
The Syrian air defenses intercept hostile targets in the airspace of the Damascus countryside.
Explosions were heard in the Damascus countryside, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported late Monday.
"The Syrian air defenses are responding to hostile targeted in the airspace of Souther Damascus," the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.
This is the first aggression launched by the Israeli occupation on Syria in June, with successive aggression conducted throughout May, the latest of which was reported as launched in the Southern countryside of Damascus on May 21.
The Israeli occupation had bombed the Masyaf area of Syria a week earlier, killing five Syrians in the unjustified and unlawful attack that comes in violation of the country's sovereignty.
Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria deputy chief Oleg Zhuravlyov had announced that six Israeli F-16s attacked on May 13 between 20:25 and 20:32 sites for the Syrian scientific research center in Masyaf and Baniyas without entering Syrian airspace.
