Israeli Missile Strikes Kill Three Near Syria’s Damascus

Israeli missiles have killed three people near the Syrian capital, Damascus.

The missiles came from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and some were intercepted by the Syrian air defences, Aljazeera said on Saturday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said the three people killed were military officers and four other members of an air defence crew were wounded.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a fire broke at one of the positions near the Damascus airport where ambulances were seen rushing to the site of the attack.

Since civil war broke out in Syria in 2011, Israel has carried out hundreds of air strikes there, targeting government troops as well as allied Iran-backed forces.

The Israeli military has defended its military operations as necessary to prevent Iran from gaining a foothold on its doorstep.
