Syrian Army Intercepts Missiles Near Damascus

Syria's state news agency SANA said the surface-to-surface missiles, which were fired shortly after midnight on December 1, caused material damage. So far, however, the target of this reported attack is still unclear.

At least two Israeli missiles have been intercepted outside the Syrian capital, state media said on Saturday, although some military targets suffered damage from the strikes.

The London based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that the missile attack was likely carried out by the Israeli military and targeted several government military bases in Al Kiswah situated in the southwest outskirts of the capital.

Israel has declined to comment.

The message was recorded on Thursday, before the reported Israeli air strike on an Iranian base near al-Qiswa. Satellite images showed construction at the alleged base.




Arab media reports said Israel fired missiles at a military base Iran has been building near the Syrian city of al-Qiswa, reportedly destroying an arms depot.

The Israeli air force has said it struck arms convoys of the Syrian military and Lebanon's Hezbollah almost 100 times during more than six years of the Syrian war.

Previously, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that it would not allow Iran to establish any military presence in Syria.

So it appears the BBC is playing war propagandist for Israel, instead of including any level of critical inquiry regarding Israel's unprovoked act of aggression against its neighbor.
