Pictures and videos of the explosions that were heard in Damascus, Syria, at dawn today, are being shared via social media platforms.
Explosions were heard on Sunday dawn in the vicinity of the Syrian capital of Damascus, the Syrian official news agency, SANA, reported, noting that the validity and nature of these explosions was being verified.
SANA offered no further details on the incident. However, social media platforms were flooded with images and videos of what was described as explosions in Damascus early on Sunday.
Earlier, on August 7, Israeli aggression resulted in the martyrdom of four Syrian Arab Army soldiers and wounded four others in the vicinity of Damascus as Syrian air defenses engaged the hostile targets.
“The Israeli enemy carried out aerial aggression at 2:20 am on the occupied Syrian Golan, targeting numerous points in the vicinity of the city of Damascus,” a Syrian military source told the SANA.
The air defenses of the Syrian Army engaged the hostile targets and intercepted some of them. The aggression “led to the martyrdom of four soldiers, wounded four others, and material damages were recorded.”
This is the third attack of this sort in the span of a month, and such acts of aggression are commonplace in Syria, with the Israeli occupation continuously violating the country’s airspace.
