Israeli warplanes conducted airstrikes near Damascus, resulting in two Syrian soldiers being wounded, according to reports from the Syrian state news agency SANA.
The incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday morning when Israeli missiles were launched from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. SANA said that Syrian air defenses successfully intercepted and shot down a significant portion of the incoming missiles.
However, some material losses were reported, as confirmed by military sources cited by SANA. two soldiers were also reported injured.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based war monitor with extensive sources on the ground, stated that this marked the 20th Israeli strike in Syria this year.
The attacks primarily focused on military positions near the Dimas airport and the Beirut-Damascus highway, where elite members of the Syrian army are stationed.
While Israel seldom acknowledges its involvement in such airstrikes, it has been known to carry out hundreds of similar attacks in government-controlled areas of Syria in recent years.
Israeli occupation warplanes have recently escalated attacks on Syrian airports and air bases, causing injuries and material damage.
