BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 A.M) – An Al-Masdar field correspondent in west Damascus has captured footage of the Syrian Air Defense downing a U.S. cruise missile over rural Damascus at 4:45 A.M. (Damascus Time) this morning.
As shown in the video below, the Syrian Air Defense managed to intercept the missile in the direction of the Dumayr Military Airport, which is in eastern Damascus.
BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 A.M.) – The U.S. Coalition has expanded their strikes over Syria this morning, striking a number of locations near the Syrian capital of Damascus.
According to Al-Masdar’s field correspondent in Damascus, the U.S. Coalition just struck Jaramana, Barzeh, Dumayr, and several sites in rural Damascus.
Al-Masdar’s correspondent added that the cruise missiles are raining nonstop over the Damascus countryside, with some reports of attacks in the western province of Tartous.
BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the U.S., France, and the U.K. launched a barrage of cruise missiles towards rural Damascus, causing massive explosions near the Dumayr Airbase in the eastern Qalamoun.
While the site is still unknown, Al-Masdar’s field correspondent in Damascus reported that the strike is hitting the rural Damascus countryside near or possibly the Dumayr Airbase.
The Dumayr Airbase is the military installation the Syrian Air Force used to launch airstrikes on the East Ghouta during Operation Damascus Steel.
The Syrian Air Defense has responded in a bid to down the cruise missiles; however, many cruise missiles have already struck the area.
Al-Masdar previously reported that the Dumayr Airbase was the likely target because the airstrikes on the East Ghouta were launched from this site.
