Four killed, Seven injured in Israeli attack in Syria

Vastavam web: At least four civilians were killed and seven others suffered injuries in an Israeli attack in Damascus, claimed Syrian state media on Monday. The Syrian military said that it had intercepted missile launched by an Israeli warplane, reported SANA news. “Our air defences intercepted hostile missiles fired by Israeli warplanes from the Lebanese airspace towards some of our military positions in Homs and the surroundings of Damascus,” Syrian military said.

In recent years, Israel has carried out 100 strikes in Syria alleging it of violating “red lines”. Toward the start of the Syrian civil war, the Israeli military established a number of red lines, which if violated would result in a retaliatory strike, including any attacks, either intentional or otherwise, against Israel.
