Israel has attempted to attack southern Syria on two separate occasions this weekend, prompting the Syrian air defenses  to intercept their missiles in western Damascus. 

The Syrian military intercepted several unidentified objects Saturday that entered southern Syria from the occupied territories controlled by Israel, SANA reported.

According to the SANA, the unidentified objects had entered Syria's Al-Quneitra province before they were downed by the Syrian military. SANA said none of the unidentified objects caused explosions inside of Syria. 

Israel has attempted to attack southern Syria on two separate occasions this weekend, prompting the Syrian air defenses to intercept their missiles in western Damascus. 

In the past, the Israeli Air Force has heavily bombed several locations inside of Syria, with their Ministry of Defense claiming they were targeting the Iranian forces and their allies. 

Last September, the Israeli Air Force was bombing western Syria when one of their F-16 jets used a Russian spy plane for cover during an attempted interception by the Syrian military. 

The Syrian military mistakenly shot down the Russian spy plane, causing Moscow to blame Israel for the event. 

In turn, Russia announced that they would be delivering the S-300 air defense system to Syria in order to prevent situations like this in the future.
