Syrians attacked Israeli planes.

The Israel Defense Forces said it attacked rocket launchers and radar in Syria in response to Syrian missiles being fired at Israeli warplanes.

Syrian state TV earlier announced an air attack near Damascus and that Syrian air defenses shot down several Israeli missiles over Damascus.

The appearance of Syrian missiles caused an alert to be announced in part of Israel and the West Bank. The rockets exploded in the air.

Syrian TV, quoting military sources, reported that one Syrian serviceman was killed and five were injured.

Israel regularly conducts attacks on Syria aimed at Iranian-backed paramilitary structures, the most famous of which is the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah.
