(Reuters) – Syrian state television said on Saturday that air defenses had intercepted “hostile targets launched from the occupied territories” into the countryside outside the capital Damascus.
State television previously reported that explosions were heard in the countryside outside Damascus.
It was not immediately clear what television meant by “occupied territories”. But Israel, alarmed by Iran’s growing regional influence and military presence in Syria, says it has carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria to slow Iranian entrenchment.
