A Syrian soldier was killed Thursday in an Israeli missile raid from the occupied Golan Heights into southern Syria, state media reported.
“At around 12:50 am, the Israeli enemy carried out an air raid with several missiles in the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan and targeting several positions in the south,” according to a military source quoted by SANA.
The Syrian air defenses managed to “shoot down most of the missiles”, the source added, which specified that “the aggression caused the death of a soldier and material damage”.
In early December, Israel carried out strikes on an Iranian arms shipment at the port of Latakia, located in President Bashar al-Assad’s western Syrian heartland, without causing any casualties.
