TASS, July 12. Syria’s air defense forces have repelled an Israeli attack near the city of al-Quneitra (some 40 kilometers of Damascus) in the Golan Heights, SANA news agency said on Thursday.
According to SANA, the Israeli air strike was delivered at military positions near the settlements of Hodor, Tell Kurum and Jbaa.
A Syrian military source told the news agency that Israeli warplanes had fired several missiles. Some of them were downed. He said the attack had incurred only material damage, but no one had been hurt.
On May 10, Syria’s army downed dozens of missiles fired from Israeli warplanes at army positions near the city of al-Baath in the Golan Heights. This attack was part of a more massive Israeli strike. The Russian defense ministry said back then that the Israel Defense Forces had fired more than 70 missiles at Syria’s territory under the pretext of shelling of its positions in the Golan Heights. Israel used 28 F-15 and F-16 warplanes to deliver the strike.
