Israeli air defenses were activated against a missile fired from Syria, a military spokesman said at around 10:40 p.m. Tuesday evening.

No damage or casualties on Israel’s side were reported.

Shortly before the announcement, Syrian sources reported a strike on the Damascus region and said Syrian air defenses had been activated.

Specifically, SANA news said the strikes were launched from Lebanon, with the Syrian news outlet claiming that several targets were intercepted.

Over the past several years, Israel has launched hundreds of airstrikes in Syria targeting Iranian personnel and military infrastructure, which the Islamic Republic has built up during Syria’s bloody civil war.

On Tuesday evening, SANA posted videos to social media allegedly showing missiles fired from the Damascus vicinity.
