The Syrian air defenses on Sunday night intercepted missiles fired from inside Israel, the state TV reported.

People in the capital Damascus heard the sound of powerful explosions as a result of the firing of air defenses triggered by the missile attack.

State news agency SANA said the air defenses intercepted “hostile targets” fired from inside the “occupied territories”.

One of the missiles fell in the town of Akraba in Damascus countryside, Xinhua reported citing SANA.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said three explosions were heard in the capital as a result of the air defenses triggered by an Israeli missile attack that targeted positions of the Syrian army and Iran-backed militia in the surrounding of the capital.

Throughout the Syrian crisis, Israel has carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria against Iranian targets and convoys transporting weapons to Hezbollah, an Iran-backed Lebanese militia.

In 2019 alone, more than 17 Israeli attacks targeted Syria, the latest of which occurred on November 20 when several Israeli missiles attacked sites on the southern and southwestern outskirts of Damascus.
