Israel warplanes hit airbase near Damascus: Syria state TV

Wed Dec 7, 2016 10:13AM

Syria’s state television says Israeli military aircraft have targeted an airbase near the capital Damascus.

The attack took place on Wednesday, the television reported, verifying earlier unconfirmed reports that the Israeli air force had launched the raid against the el-Mezzeh outpost from the Lebanese airspace.

Large explosions rang out after the attack. Syria’s al-Ikhbariyah television channel said the explosions hit fuel depots at the base.

Lebanese al-Mayadeen channel, meanwhile, reported that Israeli airstrikes had hit an important Syrian military airport in the capital.

Last week, Israeli fighter jets carried out missile attacks from Lebanese skies against two targets close to the highway connecting Damascus to the Lebanese capital Beirut. Syria’s official news agency SANA cited an unnamed military source as saying that the missiles fell on the Saboura area west of Damascus.

The source said the Israeli assault was an attempt to “divert attention away from the successes of” government forces on the battleground against Takfiri militants.

Devoted to the cause of ousting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Israel has been a staunch supporter of the Takfiri terrorists fighting in the Arab country. The regime provides treatment to the terrorists in the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, parts of which it has occupied since 1967.

In the past, Israeli jets have time and again carried out sorties inside the Syrian territory under various pretexts. Back in May, an Israeli strike against Damascus claimed the life of Mustafa Badreddine, a senior Hezbollah commander.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, which fought off two Israeli wars in 2006 and 2008 at home, has been successfully helping Syria to defend itself in the face of terrorists and to prevent the spillover of the crisis into Lebanon.

    Congratulations to the Syrian Army on their great Victory over Old Aleppo as the Syrian Government now starts to take back control of its soil from Zionist minion shabbos goy teams from hell. How dare Israel attack Syria just because its Greater Israel plans are now hindered. Israel must be attacked for this action but that’s what Israel wants as an excuse to cause a wider scale conflict which would result in WW3. What should happen now is that Russia should make sure those S400 defense systems are switched on and ready without fail. Russia must be the one to destroy Israeli aircraft/missiles that enter Syrian airspace. If Russia does the job then there will be no widening of the conflict. Putin must live up to his threats with the S400 and use it to defend from this Zionist filth. Putin must not deal with Israel as they’re all deception artists who should be removed from Palestinian land. The best bet would be to use exotic electronic warfare where Russia can totally deny any involvement.
