Syrian Army said it has intercepted Israeli Missiles which had been fired to the country from the Lebanese airspace.

Syrian Arab News Agency SANA reported that the Syrian air-defense system had confronted Israeli aggressions over central and southern regions of the country.

“At exactly 11:36 p.m. this evening, the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack from over the Lebanese territories, targeting some targets in the central and southern regions,” SANA quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

“Our air defense media confronted the aggression’s missiles and shot down some of them, and the losses were limited to material.”

SANA said the Israeli airstrike had hit a plastics factory in Latakia, leaving one civilian dead and six others, including a child and his mother, injured.

Syria called on the UN Security Council in April to take “firm and immediate” action to end Israeli acts of aggression after a barrage of Israeli missiles were launched from the direction of the occupied Golan Height on some targets near Damascus.

The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said at the time in a statement that the attack was a flagrant violation of the UN Charter and Syria’s sovereignty.
