Syrian army air defenses confronted Israeli-missiles aggression that targeted several posts south of Damascus and downed most of them, SANA News Agency reported on Friday.

A military source noted: “The Israeli enemy launched at 4.20 am on Friday an aerial aggression from the occupied Syria Golan’s airspace, targeting some post south of Damascus”.

The source added that the “army air defenses confronted the aggression and shot down most of the missiles”.

“The aggression left one civilian injured, as well material damaged,” the source said.

In May, the Syrian air defenses responded to an "Israeli aggression" over the Masyaf area in Hama countryside

The authorities did not disclose any details about the casualties or the damage. An Israeli military spokesperson declined to comment.

On a separate note, Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian woman at the entrance of Al-Arroub refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, according to WAFA News Agency.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health revealed that the Israeli soldiers opened fire at Ghofran Warasnah, 31, injuring her in the chest

The Red Crescent pointed out that the Israeli forces prevented medics from approaching Warasnah until after 20 minutes after her injury.

On his part, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas affirmed the current situation cannot be accepted nor tolerated amid the absence of a political horizon and international protection for the Palestinian people in accordance with signed agreements and resolutions of international legitimacy

Moreover, he condemned the international community’s inability to compel Israel to adhere to the resolutions of international legitimacy and its failure to stop Israel’s criminal and occupying practices, ethnic cleansing measures, and racial discrimination, amid the US silence on these provocations and practices that are in flagrant violation of international law.
