Shortly after midnight, Syrian air defenses intercepted an Israeli aerial aggression on Salamyieh and Sabburah in the Hama countryside and downed a large number of missiles before they reached their targets.

A military source told SANA that at 12:45 am, the Israeli enemy launched a new aggression which targeted a number of the Syrian military sites in Salamyieh and Sabburah in the Hama countryside. 

The source added that immediately after the missiles were spotted, the army’s air defenses targeted them and downed a number of them before they reached their targets, and they only caused material damage. 

Earlier on Tuesday evening, a number of the military sites in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor and Suweida provinces were targeted by a missile aggression, and two soldiers were martyred and others were injured, in addition to causing material damage.

A military source said that at 9:17 pm on Tuesday evening, hostile air targets coming from the east and northeast of Palmyra launched a number of missiles at military sites in Kabajib to the west of Deir ez-Zor and in the al-Sikhnieh area. Meanwhile, one of the army sites has been targeted near Salkhad to the south of Suweida.

The source added that two soldiers were martyred in the aggression and four others were injured, in addition to causing material damage.

In recent years, the Syrian air defenses have intercepted many Israeli attacks, which have been perpetrated to raise the morale of the collapsing terrorist organizations, which the Syrian Arab Army have been inflicting heavy losses upon.
