Syrian anti-air missiles have overshot their targets several times in recent years, winding up over Israeli-controlled territory due to the close-in nature of its engagements with Israeli aircraft launching missiles at targets in Syria.
According to Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), which cited Syrian army command, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) fired surface-to-surface missiles from the Golan Heights at several military positions in the town of Zakia south of Damascus just before midnight on Wednesday.
No casualties and little damage has been reported.
Last week, the IDF launched airstrikes on Syrian missile and radar systems in the country's south, claiming the attack to be in response to a Syrian anti-air missile that set off alarms inside Israel.

Russia Strongly Condemns Israeli Airstrikes in Syria
Syria has never recognized Israel's existence as legal and the two nations have remained in a state of war since Israel's foundation in 1948. In 1967, Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War. While it was rumored to have considered trading the territory for diplomatic normalization with Damascus, in 1981 it declared the Golan annexed into Israel. The United Nations has called the move illegal and demanded its return to Syria.
