Syrian air defenses intercept Israeli warplane

DAMASCUS (Ma'an) -- Syrian air defenses allegedly intercepted an Israeli warplane west of the Syrian capital of Damascus on predawn Saturday.

The SANA Syrian news agency reported that Syrian air defenses were used against a "hostile" warplane penetrating the Syrian airspace.

Sources said that the air defenses allegedly intercepted an Israeli warplane, that penetrated Syrian airspace, coming from across the Lebanese border, in the Die al-Ashair area, west of Damascus.

SANA reported that Israel was to blame for the recent incursions, saying that "in the past few weeks, the Israeli enemy has attacked military positions."

A spokesperson for the Israeli army said it did not comment on foreign reports.

A similar incident was reported about a week ago by Syrian news outlets, saying that the Syrian air defenses intercepted and destroyed an unidentified target, west of Damascus.

Sources later confirmed that the target was not Israeli.
