Syria on Friday reported an Israeli missile strike in the airspace of Damascus and the southern region.
As per the Syrian news agency SANA report, “Our air defences intercepted an Israeli missile strike in the airspace of Damascus and the southern region.”
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported violent eruptions echoing in Damascus and its adjacent areas as a result of Israeli strikes on military sites.
The strike reportedly targeted Iranian weapons shipment at Damascus airport.
Earlier last month Israeli allegedly did 2 strikes that killed around 5 Syrian soldiers. However, in August Reuters also reported an Israeli strike on Iranian weapons near Russia’s Mediterranean bases.
In June, Israeli-attributed bombardments whacked Damascus airport offline for nearly two weeks, according to media reports.
Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, Israel has launched hundreds of airstrikes targeting its northern neighbour, regime forces, affiliated Iran-backed forces, and Hezbollah fighters.
While Israel rarely discusses independent strikes, it has admitted to carrying out hundreds. It claims that its air campaign is necessary to keep arch-foe Iran from establishing itself on its doorstep.
