Israel has made another illegal incursion into Syrian territory. At around 3:50 am on Thursday, several explosions rocked the surrounding areas of Damascus International Airport.
It was later reported that the Israel missiles, originating south of the Golan Heights, were launched at Hezbollah sites in the vicinity of Damascus International Airport. The missiles allegedly targeted Hezbollah’s equipment, ammunition and weapon stockpiles.
The incident has since been verified by Israeli officials.
Yisrael Katz, Israeli Minister of Intelligence Services, wrote on his Twitter page that earlier on Thursday night, Israeli Defense Forces carried out strikes against Hezbollah’s positions in Syria in order to limit the growth and influence of that Lebanese movement and prevent it from reaching were weapon supplies. Hezbollah is otherwise known for fighting alongside the Syrian Army.
Aside from mass explosions, fires and material damage, no other reports on consequences were made, indicating that no people were left dead or wounded.
In the past, Israeli Defense Forces occasionally carried out airstrikes against Syrian Army and Hezbollah positions, often when the two were in the midst of intense fighting against the terrorists.
The last Israeli incursion into Syrian territory occurred on Sunday when Israeli military jets bombed NDF sites in Quneitra province and killed 3 people.
