Syrian TV says air defenses foil missile strike


Syrian air defenses identified a missile fired towards the northern city of Masyaf and destroyed it before it hit its target, Syrian state television reported early on Friday citing a military source.

The missile was fired from the direction of northern Lebanon, the military source added.

Israel has acknowledged repeatedly striking targets inside Syria in recent years, and some attacks Damascus has attributed to Israel have been made from Lebanese airspace.
