Syria says Israel hit military position in country's south

BEIRUT — Syria’s state-run news agency says Israel has attacked a military position in southern Syria, causing material damage.

SANA said that during the Wednesday morning attack on al-Harra hill, Syrian air defences were able to shoot down some of the Israeli missiles before they reached their target.

The agency said that “after the aggression,” the Israeli military began jamming Syrian military radars.

Israel does not usually comment on reports concerning its strikes in neighbouring Syria, though it has recently acknowledged striking Iranian targets there.

On June 2, Syria blamed Israel for attacks that killed four soldiers.

For years, Israel has remained largely silent about its attacks against Iran and its Shiite proxies operating in neighbouring Syria. But in recent months, military and political leaders have become increasingly outspoken about these activities.
