Early on December 23, the Syrian Air Defense intercepted several missiles launched by Israeli warplanes from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and the Lebanese area of Mount Hermon.
According to Syria’s SANA, the missiles were intercepted at 11 p.m. local time. SANA claimed that the Israeli missiles reportedly fell in the area of Aqraba in the Damascus countryside.
At the same time, pro-Israeli sources claim that all the missiles hit their targets. Nonetheless, this has not been confirmed by visual evidence.
The new Israeli attack in Syria took place as the Syrian Army and its allies were developing an important advance against terrorist groups in the Greater Idlib region. At the same time, ISIS increased their attack on military and civilian targets in the government-controlled part of Syria.
It seems that some forces are very unhappy that terrorist groups that operate in Syria are on retreat.
