The anti-aircraft defenses of the Syrian army managed to intercept eight of the 12 missiles during the latest Israeli air strike against this Arab nation.
Vadim Kolette, Deputy Director of Russian Coordination, Vadim Kolette, reported that six F-16 fighters of the Israeli army fired 12 guided missiles from the Al-Tanif region in eastern Syria against the T-4 airport located on the road between Homs and Palmyra in central Syria. The center is located at the Hmeimim base in Lattakia Governorate.
Colette said that the Syrian armed forces destroyed eight of the missiles of the Russian-made Pántsir-S1 air defense system.
According to the Russian official, the hostile action of the Israeli air force caused minor injuries to six soldiers and minor material damage.
On 3 September, anti-aircraft batteries shot down 21 of the 24 missiles before they hit the outskirts of Damascus.
The Syrian army repels Israeli air strikes using the Pántsir-S1, Buk-M2E and S-200 systems.
According to the authorities of the Arab country, Israel carried out about 100 attacks in 2020 and has already exceeded 25 attacks so far this year.
The government condemned these actions and denounced the silence of the United Nations, as well as ratified the legitimate right to defend the integrity and sovereignty of the national territory by all means available to it.
In addition, he denounced that these attacks are part of the direct support provided to terrorist groups, especially ISIS or the Islamic State, in order to once again destabilize the already liberated areas.
