The Syrian Arab News Agency reported that two missiles have landed near Damascus International Airport. Since there was no immediate reports of any damage, it’s not clear if the missiles hit a place or were stopped.
While Damascus always accuses Israel of helping terrorists to attack territories, Israel, which rarely confesses about its operations in Syria, declares that its intervening is right to prevent transferring weapons to Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
Israel has intensified its bombing in Syria in the last months under the pretext that Iranian presence in the Arab Republic is a danger for its national security. The two recent attacks includes: in April, Syria’s T-4 airbase was targeted by Israeli F-15 fighters. Last month, IAF fired missiles near Damascus.
Tel Aviv has targeted the places in Syria included weapons storage facilities, logistics sites, and intelligence centers, and believes that these places are used by Iran and Hezbollah.
Nevertheless, Damascus has denied the presence of the Iranian military in Syria, and added that the Israel’s actions are cynical violation of sovereignty. The Syrian president vowed to complete the country’s air defenses to tackle the Israeli aggression.
Bashar Asad told:
The Israelis have been assassinating, killing, occupying for decades now, for around seven decades, in this region, but usually they do all this without threatening. Now, why do they threaten in this way? This is panic, this is a kind of hysterical feeling because they are losing the ‘dear ones,’ the dear ones Al-Nusra and ISIS, that’s why Israel is panicking recently, and we understand their feeling.
These statements were reactions to Israeli politicians’ threats to liquidate his governments.
