Israeli Reconnaissance Drones Shot Down over Damascus


Reports are emerging from the Syrian capital of Damascus that the army’s air defense systems are engaging hostile targets in the southwest of the city.

Syrian military sources say that they shot down two Israeli reconnaissance drones to the west of Damascus.

The Syrian Army’s (SAA) air defense systems are reportedly engaging multiple targets, possibly hostile warplanes or projectiles.

According to Syrian activist Wael al-Russi, three missiles and one Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or drone, were downed by Syria’s air defenses. Two of the missiles were apparently thwarted in the south of the city and another in the northwest. The drone was shot down in west of the city, according to the activist. Syrian Journalist Kevork Almassian says his military sources are confirming an “enemy target” was intercepted to the west.

Journalist Ilanit Chernick with the Israeli Jerusalem Post said that it appears as though Israel is targetting allegedly Iranian bases near Damascus.

Syrian state media outlet SANA has confirmed the downing of an “enemy” target in Western Damascus. They outlet has apparently posted footage of the country’s air defense systems at work.

  1. Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind whom has caused the conflict, death and suffering in Syria?
    Veterans should demand that the United States remove all
    of troops, bases and support from these imperialistic warmongers. Enough is enough!

  2. The nasty little nation of Israeli is trying to start a major conflict across the region.The world would be infinitely better without them.

  3. Quote: “screw·ball
    a pitched ball that moves in a direction opposite to that of a curveball.
    a crazy or eccentric person.
    crazy; absurd.”
    Israel is the country of screwballs of the planet. These despicable expletives deleted think they are above all laws. They give law their middle finger every day. The steal land from neighbors but wonder why neighbors hate them. They terrorize innocent Palestinian adults and children every day with impunity and seem to enjoy watching them suffer at the hands of these terrorist gangster screwballs who evidently have screws loose inside their empty heads. God didn’t feel good the day he or she made the screwballs in Israel did he? A monster was created to destroy all life and the planet earth itself. Boycott them. Buy nothing from them; sell nothing to them. Treat them as lepers to be avoided at all costs. Israel and Israels are a danger to humanity and the world.

  4. If Russia won’t, China or Iran needs to supply advanced hypersonic cruise missiles to Syria – every time the IDF launches a missile, lobs an artillery shell, or drop a bomb into Syria, an IDF military installation is targeted. An eye for an eye is the only type of restraint that the Zionists understand, and the Syrian response would be legal under international law, unlike the Israeli aggression.
