Syria’s Air Defense Units Repel Missile Attack over AleppoA military source told SANA that at 10:32 p.m. on Monday, a hostile aircraft appeared on the radar screens of the Syrian army’s air defenses units.

The source added that the aerial attack targeted Al-Safirah town in the southeast of Aleppo. It said the aircraft was coming from the northeast of Ithriyah region, southeast of Al-Safirah.

The aircraft managed to fire missiles at some military depots in Al-Safirah before being confronted by the air defense units, the source said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but the Arab country is frequently targeted by the Israeli regime’s aerial attacks.

In its latest attack, Israeli military helicopters fired rockets at several positions in southern Syria early on Friday.

The Israeli choppers reportedly fired “five rockets” at the positions of the Hezbollah resistance group in Syria’s Quneitra.

Israel frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those of Hezbollah which has played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against terrorists.
