Syria air defenses block Israeli attack on southwest: state media

Published: Updated:

Israeli aircraft fired several missiles targeting Syrian army positions in Quneitra province in southwest Syria near the occupied Golan Heights, and air defenses thwarted the attack, state news agency SANA said.

The attack near Hader at the frontier of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights caused only material damages, SANA cited a military source as saying.

Earlier, Israel shot down a drone that flew in from Syria on Wednesday, the Israeli military said, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Moscow to for talks with Damascus’s biggest ally about a Syrian advance near the volatile frontier.
