Israeli Missiles Target Border Position In Syria

The Syrian army on Wednesday said that Israel fired several surface-to-surface missiles on positions in the Syrian border province of Quneitra on Wednesday, leading to the “material damage.”

Syrian state-run news agency, SANA quoted an unnamed Syrian military official as saying that the missiles were fired from Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and struck areas around the nearby town of Quneitra.

“Israeli enemy carried out an act of aggression with a number of missiles at midnight,” the army said, adding it has not caused any casualties.

Wednesday’s attack is the third attack in this month so far as on February 16, Israeli fired a number of missiles, targeting some areas in the vicinity of Zakyia town, south of Damascus, causing material damages.

On February 9, Israel conducted an airstrike targeting anti-aircraft batteries in response to what it said was a missile fired from Syria toward Israel.

Moreover, local sources said that the Wednesday targets included an observation post in the town of Rwihinah, adjacent to the border fence, and a “finance building” in the City of Baath.

Meanwhile, SANA published photos of the damaged building, which was used by the Finance Ministry by the Syrian Assad regime.

The Israel army did not immediately comment on the matter.
