Israeli Jets Hit Damascus Airport Area: Report
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Two Israeli rockets struck near Damascus airport at dawn on Friday, Lebanese TV station al-Mayadeen reported.
Al-Mayadeen gave no further details in the report carried in a news flash on screen.
Meantime, Reuters reported that an Israeli military spokeswoman declined to comment on the reports of the airstrike, saying, “We do not respond to such reports.”
Over the past few years, the Israeli military has launched sporadic attacks against various targets on Syrian soil, in assaults slammed by Syria as attempts to boost the terror groups wreaking havoc on the country.
Earlier this month, the Syrian army reported an Israeli airstrike on a military site in Syria’s Hama province.
The Syrian army said the Israeli act of aggression affirms the direct support provided by the Israeli entity” to Daesh and other terrorist outfits.
