BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 A.M.) – At approximately 5:00 A.M. (Damascus Time), explosions were reported by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) near the Damascus International Airport.

However, approximately one hour ago, ground reporters in Damascus denied any attack took place near the airport, adding that the explosions took place closer to the border of the occupied Golan Heights.

The confirmed attacks took place along the border of the occupied Golan Heights, where both the Israeli and Syrian forces claimed to have intercepted each others rockets.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said their Iron Dome system intercepted four rockets fired from Syria, while the Syrian Army said they intercepted missiles fired from the occupied Golan Heights region near Mount Hermon (Jabal Sheikh).

Neither side reported casualties and it is still not clear what promoted this exchange this morning.

Based upon past actions I’ll bet Israel is the provoker and Syria responded.

Based on past actions, I’ll bet IRGC or some Iran puppets were the provokers and will end with their Bütts kicked as usual. IMHO, Iran won’t understand until IDF sinks the South-Pars platforms and demolishes the processing plant on Iranian shore. Value = $45bn
The only language religious fanatics understand is when they end with a blöody nose.
