Syria Mobilizes Air Defenses Over Damascus, Repels Incoming Missiles

According to reports by Syrian state broadcaster SANA, air defense systems protecting the capital city of Damascus have been mobilized to repel “a number of hostile targets.”

Damascus residents have also reported sighting of flares and sounds of explosions in the city’s evening sky.


Thus far, information is limited regarding the belligerent party and its intended targets, as is the standard of Syrian air defense deployment. However, the prime suspect for this unwarranted attack appears to be Israel – who had launched an unprovoked attack on Syria as recently as this past Christmas Day.

During Israel’s Christmas attack on Damascus, it was revealed how the IDF had used two innocent passenger airliners as cover in order to fire 16 laser-guided GBU-39 bombs at targets near Damascus. The passenger planes were preparing for their landings into both Beirut and Damascus airports.

Israel has repeatly claimed that such attacks are done in order to “defend itself against Iran and Hezbollah,” when in fact no proof has ever been presented to validate these perennial claims made by Tel Aviv.


SANA is reporting an Israeli strike on facilities at Damascus International Airport, after IDF fighter planes fired “several missiles” which triggered Syrian air defense systems, intercepting “most” of the incoming projectiles.

The following footage was filmed showing SAA anti-missile batteries repelling the apparent IDF strike:
