Following the news about a missile attack launched Friday in Syria that it did not comment on foreign media reports.

“We do not comment on reports in foreign news outlets,” the IDF said.

Early Friday morning, the Syrian state-run Al-Ikhbariya broadcaster reported that the country’s air defense systems were repelling an Israeli attack on Aleppo. A Syrian military source then said that the defense systems downed the majority of Israeli missiles.

Allegedly Israel frequently launches strikes on Syria to counter the Iranian military presence in the neighboring Arab republic.
