Late on February 28, heavy Israeli strikes hit the southern outskirts of the Syrian capital, Damascus, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency.

“The Israeli enemy launched air strikes from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan, targeting a number of sites in the Damascus countryside,” a military official said in a statement to the state-run agency.

Most of the hostile missiles were shot down, the unnamed official added, noting that losses from the attack were limited to materials.

Videos posted to social media showed a successful interception by Syrian air defenses as well as large explosions from the direction of the Shia town of Set Zaynab, a known stronghold of Lebanon’s Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed forces. Later, the Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen TV, which is close to the Axis of Resistance, confirmed that the town was hit.

The following day, February 29, an Israeli combat drone stuck a truck near the western Syrian town of al-Qusayr, which is located close to the border with Lebanon, according to Sputnik. The Russian news agency said that a man was killed and another was wounded in the strike.

Hezbollah also maintains a large presence in al-Qusayr as well as in the nearby inactive Dabaa Military Airport in the southwestern countryside of the Homs governorate. Three fighters of the group were reportedly killed in the area earlier this week when an Israeli drone strike hit a truck.

Israel has significantly escalated its attacks on Syria since the outbreak of the war in the Gaza Strip, targeting mainly Syrian military sites and personnel of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and affiliated forces.

Syria, which was torn by over a decade of war, has so far largely refrained from responding to Israel’s repeated attacks in order to avoid a dangerous confrontation.

what on earth are you talking about? russia was invited into syria. unlike conoco and the american military ensconced themselves illegally in syrian stealing syrian oil and gas for the past ten years. do you understand the concept of freedom? that comes with responsibilities, laws and honour, morality, duty, sovereignty, all the things you gave away! americans and english choose corruption and filth, while the middle east and russia choose life!

huh

wake me up when russia finaly shot down the very first israeli jet over syria.

syria is an “ally” of russia and russia ought to defend syria or at least provides it with the weapons to defend itself. but, don’t hold your breath. russia is untrustworthy zionist regime.
