Syrian air defence confronts "hostile targets" west of Damascus

Damascus (dpa) - Syrian air defence confronted late Tuesday "hostile targets" west of Damascus, the Syrian state-run news agency SANA (SANA) reported.

The sound of loud explosions echoed through the capital city of Damascus, a witness told dpa.
Lebanese residents near the border with neighboring Syria said the sound of planes could be heard in the sky, hinting that Israeli planes were using Lebanese airspace to hit targets inside Syria.
An Israeli army spokeswoman declined to comment to dpa.
Israel had previously said it will not tolerate Iran seeking to establish permanent military bases in Syria as the war there winds down after seven years of fighting.
Iranian and government targets inside Syria have been hit several times since April.
