Syrian media reported overnight Wednesday that the country’s air defense systems were activated following an Israeli attack in the Damascus area. Explosions were reported in the area. The Syrians claimed that their air defense systems fired at the Israeli missiles and shot down most of them.

According to the reports, the country’s air defense systems were activated due to "Israeli aggression." Syria’s official SANA news agency said that several missiles were intercepted over the skies of the Syrian capital.

Several weeks earlier, Syrian news outlets reported that Israeli warplanes attacked Iranian targets near Damascus.

The alleged attack appeared to be in response to the shelling of an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman, which was attributed to Iran.
