Syrian Air Defense Repel Israeli Attack Near Damascus – Reports

Israeli forces reportedly struck targets near Damascus on Tuesday with missiles, according to Al Masdar News, just hours after US President Donald Trump withdrew from the Iran sanctions deal.

Syria’s SANA reports that air defense systems intercepted at least two missiles fired at the al-Kaswa area, which is proximal to southern Damascus.

Syrian Army sources appear to have confirmed that the attacks were initiated by Israel, according to social media reports.

Unconfirmed reports emerged within an hour of Trump’s speech that Israeli Air Force jets were striking Damascus, before 3 p.m. EST, while Trump’s announced the US’ exit from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, also known as the Iran nuclear weapons deal) right around 2:20 p.m. EST.

Multiple news outlets have reported that no casualties were sustained.

According to security analyst Michael Horowitz, “a convoy may have been targeted rather than an actual base.”
