Syrian state television immediately reported that Israeli warplanes fired missiles from the Golan Heights and over southern Lebanon at multiple targets in Damascus and its southern region, most of which were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems.

According to the Syrian Human Rights Watch, headquartered in London, the attack was carried out at kiswa District in the southern suburb of Damascus, an air force base in Mazar District of Damascus and a research center in Damascus. The target of the Israeli attack was Iranian backed forces.
