Israel carried out a rare daytime attack on Syria, this resulted in a missile being fired from Syria to the Golan heights about an hour later (in retaliation for the Israeli daytime strike). That missile was intercepted, but because it was fired at Israeli forces, Israel then attacked Syria in a big way.
UPDATE: Israel’s attack occurred at 1:32pm local time on Sunday, Russia’s MoD said. 4 F-16 jets launched guided missiles into Syria, targeting the international airport, SW of Damascus.
Pantsir & Buk air defense knocked out 7 missiles. No damage reported.
