Israeli attack on Damascus kills seven fighters

Syria's air defenses have thwarted a missile attack, intercepting several "hostile targets" launched towards the capital, Damascus, Syrian state media reported.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Friday reported the human losses due to the Israeli bombing that targeted the area of Damascus International Airport before midnight Thursday reached at least 4 Iranian officers and 3 Assad army soldiers, including at least two officers.

Israel does not usually comment on reports concerning its airstrikes in neighboring Syria, though it has frequently attacked what it says are Iranian targets there.

"The hostile missiles came from the occupied Golan [Heights] ... and they were downed before they reached their targets", an army statement said.

A video released by SANA shows the system firing into the skies as the Syrian capital is plunged into total darkness.

The agency reported earlier, citing its own correspondent, that the missiles came from the direction of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the strikes launched late on Thursday hit military targets in the area of the global airport.

Israel has repeatedly bombed Iranian-backed militia targets in Syria, saying its goal was to end Tehran's military presence in the country.

Hossein Salami speaking in a ceremony in memory of Qassem Soleimani killed by a USA drone on January 3 in Baghdad was responding to earlier remarks by the Israeli defense minister.
