Syria’s air defence on Thursday responded to fresh Israeli missile strikes over the capital Damascus.

The missiles, launched from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, targeted areas west of Damascus, media reported.

The Israeli strikes targeted military sites in the Kisweh area, Marj Al-Sultan and Jisr Baghdad, and the Syrian air defence intercepted several missiles, it said.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor, the strikes targeted Iranian-backed forces in the Kisweh area, brigade 75 in the west of Damascus, the Mazzeh military airbase and Syria’s Scientific Studies Center.
