Syria: Israeli Jets Hit 2 Areas in Damascus


Syria has accused Israel of carrying out air strikes against two government-held areas in Damascus province, one of them near the Damascus international airport, media report said.

There was no immediate reaction to Sunday’s report from the Israeli regime, Aljazeera reported.

“The Israeli enemy attacked Syria by targeting two safe areas in Damascus province, namely the Dimas area and the area of Damascus International Airport,” Syrian state TV said.

The state-owned Al Ikhbariya TV station reported no casualties, but said, “the Israeli enemy committed a heinous attack by targeting two peaceful areas in the Damascus countryside”.

The Israeli regime has launched several air raids against Syria since the outbreak of the country’s conflict in 2011.
