MOSCOW (AP) — Syria’s air defense forces shot down 22 missiles launched by Israeli warplanes during an airstrike against targets in Syria, the Russian military said Friday. Rear Adm. Vadim Kulit, head of the Russian military’s Reconciliation Center in Syria, said six Israeli fighter jets targeted facilities in the provinces of Damascus and Homs from Lebanon’s airspace late Thursday.

Kulit said Syrian air defense units downed 22 of the 24 missiles launched by the Israeli warplanes with Russia-supplied air defense systems Pantsyr-S and Buk-M2. There was no immediate reaction from Israel, which rarely comments on its military operations in Syria. Syria routinely claims to shoot down Israeli missiles. Syrian war analysts generally believe that such claims — heard after nearly every Israeli airstrike — are false, empty boasts.
