Syrian Air Defenses intercept Israeli projectiles: state media
"Our air defence systems intercepted luminous objects coming from the occupied territories (Israel) and downed several of them," SANA said quoting a military source, after earlier reporting a "loud explosion" around the capital Damascus.
A later report branded the projectiles as "hostile targets" which were fired "towards the province of Quneitra" near the Golan Heights, parts of which are annexed and occupied by Israel.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said three explosions shook southwest Damascus.
