BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:35 A.M.) – Preliminary reports have emerged that an Israeli air raid has targeted Damascus International Airport or its perimeters.

This cannot be independently verified by Al-Masdar News at this moment however.

Photos have emerged of burning fuel or gas at the international airport.

The reports say that there were five airstrikes against the airport or its vicinity.

It has not been revealed yet the nature of the damage to the airport, but the strikes occurred at around 03:25 A.M. local time.

The Damascus International Airport is still used for civilian flights, including routes to Qamishli in Syria’s northeast, Tehran in Iran and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Israel is a rogue nation. Disgraceful

Israel is a real pain in Assad’s ass.
And I fear that nobody could help to fix it, much less the Russians,
being Putin so fearful and cowardly when it comes to confront the Americans or some friend of them like Israel.
That fact causes much anger to the lovers of Syria and its allies like me

Boy and what would you suggest that the Russians or the SAA invite another agressor officially into the conflict. Can’t u c the anglo-zionist are wanting a full blown confrontation and trying to provoke everybody and any one. Rothschild colonial outpost has been exposed in spades. The western sheeple r wising up. Even though we r few we r gaining in numbers. The zionist fascistic reality that has taken over all aspects of our dying and decaying west is being un done piece by piece.

” Post Scriptum: Threats and aggression are signs of weakness. Old slavic saying.”

I think the Old Slavic were very stoned when they said this
Because I fear it is exactly, the Americans doing the opposite that today they came to own the whole world including the place and country from where you made your comment.

In today’s modern reality contrary to the saying of the old slavic:
  ” The brave go as far as the cowards and weak characters allow them.”
Just as Americans and their friends treat Russia with their weak leader Putin, my dear friend. ”

Your anger caused by the Israeli raid is justified BUT when one is surrounded by a gang of Western crime gangs that are baiting a hasty response that the West will use to invade Syria with Western military units, it is surely wiser to have a more nuanced strategy that first exposes Western aggression totally to the world audience.

I don’t feel to verify but take a look at flight radar in the last 48h time. If some cargo aircraft i.e. Il-76 came from Iran, be sure there were Fateh-110 onboard : the last time KHA did such thing, Iranian sent several ballistic missiles to be smuggled into Lebanon and visibly same shit in T4 airbase. I really don’t get why they don’t move it directly into Lebanon. It’d be easier to bulldozer an improvised airstrip : serious military cargo aircraft don’t need hard runways : grass or dirt strips are OK… Well, maybe because Israelis would surely shoot… Read more »

Oh, the Islamists on this site, always frustrated with facts; Israel ALWAYS have a reason to carry out strikes in Syria, whether against Palestinian or Hezbollah war criminals or in this case where missiles are being smuggled to Lebanon.

I cannot understand : if you deliver illegal missiles at th T4, the desert is not enough large to move the trucks every 8h, or grab them so nobody can find them ?
I do not see nay reason to target the T4 airport or a civilian airport 🙁

Infact is is ust a pathetical excuse, the jew rats hit a gas line, so a civilian infrastructure, where there were fuel deposit, according to syrian sources. No Hezbollah weapons, no Hezbollah soldiers were in that place. Lebanon has weapons’ underground factories built by Iran, they needn’t to bring missiles from Syria to Beirut.
