Three soldiers were martyred, and three others were wounded due to multiple Israeli aggressions that targeted some points in Damascus countryside and Tartous.
Military sources said in a statement, “the Israeli enemy carried out at 20:50 today a missile aggression, targeting some points in Damascus countryside using southeastern Beirut’s air space. It coincided with another one targeting some points southern Tartous using the Mediterranean air space”.
“Our air defence confronted the aggressions, downed some of the missiles. Three soldiers were martyred, three others wounded, and material damages registered due to these aggressions,” the source concluded.
