Syrian TV: Israeli jets strike sites near Damascus

(Times of Israel) Syrian media reported Israeli fighter jets launched an airstrike on several military bases on the outskirts of Damascus, near the Syria-Lebanon border Sunday.

The alleged attack was reported by Syria’s official SANA news agency and by Shiite terror group Hezbollah’s official television station al-Manar.

The SANA report claimed one attack took place near Damascus’s main airport.

“The Israeli enemy attacked Syria by targeting two safe areas in Damascus province, namely the Dimas area and the area of Damascus International Airport,” said SANA, adding that no casualties were reported.

Israeli officials did not immediately respond to the reports.
