Israel reportedly launches airstrikes near Damascus

World Bulletin / News Desk

Israel has reportedly carried out airstrikes outside the Syrian capital Damascus overnight, according to local sources.

Warplanes struck a weapons dump belonging to the Lebanese group Hezbollah in the Jabal al-Mani area, southwest of Damascus, the sources said on condition of anonymity due to security concerns.

The Israeli strike also targeted a site belonging to the Syrian regime in the area, the sources said.

There was no official Israeli comment on the alleged attack.

Pro-regime Syrian media, meanwhile, reported some Israeli missiles had been intercepted by air defense systems.

Since the outbreak of Syria’s civil war in 2011, the Israeli army has occasionally struck targets inside Syria, especially after shells fired from its territory fell inside the Golan Heights, which Israel has occupied since 1967.
