Syrian air defences brought down a “hostile target” that had breached its air space over the west suburb of Damascus early on Saturday, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.
SANA’s corresponded said that there were reports of "air defences confronting a hostile target breaching the skies above the area of Deir al-Asha'ir in the Damascus countryside." The reporter did not state whether the target was destroyed.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stressed during an interview that Syria will destroy any object that breaches its air space, while not excluding any US strikes from the equation, which he said continue to violate international laws.
Earlier this month, Syrian military sources said that the army’s air defence system downed two Israeli hostile drones in the southwest of the Syrian capital.
