Syrian military fires missiles into occupied Golan Heights for first time in decades
The Syrian military took a bold stance tonight, firing several missiles into the occupied Golan Heights for the first time in decades.
A military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News that the Syrian military fired the missiles towards an Israeli base in the occupied Golan Heights; however, he could not confirm if any of the missiles struck their intended targets.
The Syrian military does not often respond to Israel's attacks, but with much of Damascus secured, the government forces have become more confident.
