Using Russia’s anti-missile technology, Syria shoots down cruise missiles fired by Israel

Syria has shot down ten guided bombs and three cruise missiles launched by the Israeli air force towards the country, using Russian anti-aircraft missile systems Pantsir-S.

Syria reportedly thwarted an Israeli airstrike by shooting down ten guided bombs and three cruise missiles, as confirmed by the Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria on Friday.

The interception was achieved using the Russian-made Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile systems, Sputnik reported.

Vadim Kulit, the deputy head of the center, provided details during a press briefing, stating that the air defense forces effectively employed the Pantsir-S systems, resulting in the destruction of the incoming projectiles.

The Israeli air raid caused damage to military infrastructure, but fortunately, no casualties were reported.

The incident unfolded following Israeli forces launching strikes on Damascus and the southern region of Syria on Thursday and Friday.

The Syrian Defense Ministry had previously reported the successful interception of several missiles during these attacks, preventing casualties but resulting in material damage.

Tensions in the region remain heightened as such military actions continue, with both sides closely monitoring and responding to the evolving situation.
