Several explosions in the sky over Damascus as Syrian air defense systems swiftly responded to attacks coming from the direction of the occupied Golan Heights.

The Syrian capital and surrounding areas often come under air attacks which the country blames on Israel. However, Tel Aviv rarely admits its military raids against the neighbour, but this time the IDF swiftly confirmed the strike.

The General Command of the Army warned on Saturday that any violation of its airspace will be met with a military response and any aircraft doing it will be regarded as “hostile target.” The latest attack, however, came from outside the Syrian airspace with missiles coming from the direction of the occupied Golan Heights.

The last time Tel Aviv rained down missiles on Damascus was 10 days ago. Another attack on February 6 endangered lives of  lives of 172 passengers and crew aboard a Damascus-bound Airbus A320 from Tehran.
