Syria Says Fowns Two Israeli Missiles Near Capital
AFP via Yahoo ^ | 05/08/18

Damascus (AFP) - The Syrian army on Tuesday night intercepted two Israeli missiles fired towards a district near Damascus, Syria's official SANA news agency said, but a monitor said nine pro-government fighters died in the strike.

According to SANA, "anti-aircraft defenses intercepted two Israeli missiles launched against (the district of) Kissweh and destroyed them".

The agency had earlier reported "explosions" in the southern suburb, while state television broadcast images of fires in the area targeted by the strikes.

Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP that the missiles had targeted a weapons depot in Kissweh, "presumably belonging to Hezbollah and the Iranians".

Abdel Rahman said the strike had killed at least nine pro-government fighters, "including members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and other pro-Iranian Shiite militiamen", but it was not possible to independently confirm any toll.

Sanaa quoted a medical source saying that two civilians had died on a highway linking Damascus with the southern city of Deraa as a result of an explosion linked to "the Israeli aggression", without providing details.

Why is Israel attacking a sovereign nation that has not attacked them? This is not good.

I don’t know what happened there, but it should read,

“Downs” and not “Fowns”

If you translate from the original Syrian, it means two Israeli missiles were destroyed in the process of impacting their air defense targets.

Man, those Syrians are some serious sharpshooters, downing nearly every missile fired at them over the past few weeks. Or......maybe, just maybe....they’re lying. Naaaaaaa..........

We are hoping Jerusalem takes at least 50 miles of land now to better protect herself from more and more Syrian (and Iranian) aggression

some little bit of strategic depth could help prevent the need for a very massive, and quick, elimination of many many MANY terrorists, soldiers, guerilla fighters, gangsters, and just civilians too, alas, in socalled “sovereign” Syria plus Iran of course, too. incidentally, “sovereign” is a word that really doesn’t apply very well anymore to Syria, what with at least six or eight countries attacking or already controlling land there

“Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces likely intercepted the warheads with their own buildings or vehicles”
