BEIRUT, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Syrian military air defences thwarted "hostile targets" on Sunday night and shot down several of them, state news agency SANA said without elaborating.

Earlier on Sunday, Syrian air defences repelled an Israeli attack in the south of the country, bringing down seven missiles, state media said. (Reporting by Ellen Francis; Editing by Daniel Wallis)
