The armed forces of the Israeli regime have fired missiles upon sovereign Syrian territory in an unprovoked attack which constitutes a violation of international law.
Israeli fighter jets fired missiles at an ammunition depot in western Damascus earlier this evening, following a day when Syrian forces made substantial gains against al-Qaeda/al-Nusra near the occupied Golan Heights.
The jets were reportedly flying illegally in Lebanese airspace when they fired the projectiles.
According to initial reports from al-Masdar who broke the story, some of the aggressive missiles hit the ammunitions depot causing a large explosion, while others were successfully intercepted by Syrian missile defence systems, presumably the Syrian operated, Russian made S-200 system.
