Two rockets believed to have been fired by Israeli jets outside the Syrian airspace targeted the vicinity of the Damascus global airport at dawn Friday, pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV reported.
On September 7th the Syrian Army reported that Israeli airstrikes hit Syrian military positions in the Hama Governorate, causing extensive damage. They reported that no Syrians were harmed and that a lot of smoke has surrounded the area.
According to the reports, three separate strikes were carried out near the Damascus International Airport, an area known to be a stronghold of the Iranian-backed terrorist group.
Al-Masdar News reported that a Syrian military source said that the Syrian Air Force has shot down an Israeli drone near the Damascus province border shortly after the attack.
Israel has made clear that it is deeply concerned by a “day after” scenario involving an expanded Iranian and Hezbollah presence to its north.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors Syria’s civil war, said the attack earlier this month was on a facility of the Scientific Studies and Research Centre, an agency which the U.S. describes as Syria’s chemical weapons manufacturer.
The reports quoted Syrian media outlets allegedly close to the Syrian regime saying that the Israeli warplanes attacked a weapons warehouse near Damascus.
