Israeli Missiles Land Near Mezzeh Military Airport in Damascus

A number missiles landed in the surroundings of Mezzeh airport west of Damascus early Wednesday after being fired from Israeli positions in the occupied Palestinian territories, a military source said.

The source told SANA that the attack caused a fire to erupt in the site where the missiles hit, adding that no human casualties were reported. It noted that the attack is part of Israel’s “desperate attempts” to support terrorist groups in Syria and raise their deteriorating morale.

This assault, the source stressed, will only make the Syrian army “even more determined to cut off the hands of the terrorist agents of the Zionist entity, which should be held fully responsible for the repercussions and consequences of these criminal attacks.”

The missile attack came a week after the Israeli air force fired two missiles on the western countryside of Damascus, in an attempt to divert attention from the Syrian army advances in the region.
