Two people killed in Israeli attack on Syria
Two people were killed and a number of people were injured in an Israeli attack on Syria, Syrian state media said.
Israel attacked Iranian and Syrian military targets in Syria today in what it said was retaliation for rockets fired toward Israel the day before, military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Avichay Adraee said.
Syria’s air defenses were able to destroy most of the missiles fired by Israeli jets over the capital Damascus before they reached their targets, Syria’s state news agency SANA said, citing a military source.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier that Israeli authorities carried out the strike on Syria to demonstrate that the country will respond to any hostile acts against it.
