"Air Forces of Syrian Arab Army deflected the Israeli missile aggression in eastern Homs", the military reported.
According to them, the missile attack took place on March 31, at 8.25 p.m. Multiple missiles were fired, but Syrian Army used anti-aircraft weapons to down them. They were destroyed before they reached their targets.
Israel continues to shell targets in Syria and Iraq, trying to weaken Iran and make it withdraw its forces from the region. In February, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that Israel would not let Iran gather any footholds on its northern border.
In October 2019, Iran's Foreign Minister Jawad Zarif claimed his country was not going to leave Syria as long as the Syrian government is interested in Iran's presence.
Last month, Russian and Turkish military servicemen conducted the first joint patrol in Syria's Idlib province. This was part of the agreement reached by the countries' leaders in Moscow
