According to the source, the rockets were shot down in the sky over the Syrian city of Homs.

It is clarified that the launch occurred from Lebanon.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), an opposition war monitor, said Israeli warplanes fired eight missiles at al-Shayrat air base in Homs province. It said explosions were heard and believed to have been caused by anti-aircraft defenses while intercepting these strikes, but gave no further details.

There was no immediate comment from Israel.

Recall that on March 5 the Syrian air defense successfully repulsed an Israeli missile attack on the provinces of Homs and Kuneitra.

Then, the state television of the Arab Republic specified that rockets were launched from the territory of the occupied Golan Heights. According to Al-Ikhbariya, none of them reached the goal. Syrian radio station Sham FM clarifies that 12 enemy missiles were shot down in response to the attack.

The Israeli military regularly strikes at targets in Syria, explaining their actions by the desire to prevent modern weapons from falling into enemy hands. First of all, we are talking about the Lebanese Hezbollah movement, which is fighting in the region on the side of Bashar al-Assad and controlled by Tehran.
