Three Syria soldiers were killed after air defenses had activated in the capital city of Damascus in response to inbound Israeli missile strikes, Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported Friday morning
Explosions were reported in the vicinity of the capital on Friday morning, although the targets of the strike were as yet unclear. At least seven explosions were reported.
Video shared online was purported to be of the Syrian air defenses, but the veracity of the video was uncertain.
Syrian officials said after the strikes that most of the incoming missiles had been successfully intercepted, but that three soldiers had nonetheless been killed and seven others injured.
Israel has for years carried out strikes against targets in Syria.
