It added that the Syrian air defense shield has also engaged 3 Israeli warplanes which had violated the country’s airspace, but it did not reveal any details on their fate.

The Syrian army intercepted tens of incoming Israeli missiles and reciprocated the assault with a barrage of rocket attacks on military centers in occupied Golan, the first such response in decades.

According to the report, the Syrian army’s air defense systems intercepted tens of Israeli missiles in the sky while a number of missiles hit the air defense and radar units as well as arms caches.

Meantime, al-Mayadeen news channel reported that over 50 rockets were fired at 4 Israeli military complex centers in occupied Golan, each including several military units, after Israel’s attacks on Quneitra.

Other sources, including al-Alam news channel, also reported that the number of rockets fired at occupied Golan went over 68.  List of targets supplied by Southfront:

Al-Mayadeen also said that the Israeli Iron Dome defense shield has failed to intercept the rockets, adding that Tel Aviv has ordered troops to avoid disclosing any information about the target of the attacks.

Israeli Media: Only 20% of Rockets Fired from Syria Intercepted by Iron Dom

Israeli Media: Only 20% of Rockets Fired from Syria Intercepted by Iron Dom

Israel said 20 rockets were fired into the Golan Heights early Thursday, and acknowledged that its well-known Iron Dome has only shot down 4 projectiles.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Spokesman, Lt Col Jonathan Conricus, told reporters that “several but not all” of the rockets were intercepted by Israeli defences, as minutes past midnight, approximately 20 projectiles were fired towards the line of IDF positions in the Golan Heights.

The military admitted that “Israel’s Iron Dome missile defence system brought down four of the rockets”.

Other sources mentioned 50 to 68 rockets were fired at Israeli targets after midnight in reprisal for earlier missile attacks on Syria.

The Syrian army intercepted tens of incoming Israeli missiles and reciprocated the assault with a barrage of rocket attacks on military centers in occupied Golan, the first such response in decades.

Israel has seized the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and continued to occupy two-thirds of the strategically-important territory ever since. The Tel Aviv regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area since its occupation and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.

The Tel Aviv regime has launched sporadic attacks against various targets on Syrian soil over the past few years, in assaults slammed by Damascus as attempts to boost terrorist groups who have been suffering heavy defeats in battle against Syrian government forces.

The Syrian army has also seized Israeli-made arms and military equipment from militants fighting pro-Damascus forces on numerous occasions ever since the war of militancy started in the country. Israel has also admittedly been providing medical treatment to the militants wounded in the Arab country.

  1. If Israel gets the worst of the exchange they will not hesitate to use nuclear weapons as they refuse to lose. Even as they started this war in the first place.

  2. So, what I gather from all this is that Tuesday evening, Israel launched airstrikes against targets on Syrian soil and at least 2 Israeli missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defenses. In response, missiles were fired from Syrian territory at Israeli military targets occupying the Golan Heights area on Wednesday (which CNN blamed on Iran). Then, late last night/very early this morning, (1:45-3:45 Am) Israel launched 60 missiles at Syrian targets, 70% of which were intercepted by Syrian air defenses. Then, later This morning, Syria retaliated by launching between 50-68 missiles at Israeli military installations occupying the Golan Heights region, 4 of which were intercepted by Israel’s iron dome missile defense.

    Is that the gist of it, or am I way off?

    • Having Netanyahu front row and center at their victory parade, apparently…I still can’t get over that ☹️

    • Amelius: I too was aghast at first. But then I thought about Trump in a skullcap at the wailing wall, and Nutty at Moscow participating in Russia’s Victory parade… It’s not so bad.

  3. Good for Syria!! I just wish the U.S. military would get on the right side of humanity for once and help Syria. Pipe dream I know.
