BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 A.M.) – Several explosions were heard in the sky over the Syrian Capital of Damascus on Saturday night, a correspondent reported.

Several explosions over Damascus were reported by a correspondent around 11:20 pm (8:20 pm GMT) local time. Minutes later SANA agency reported that Syrian air defences were repelling ‘enemy targets’ over the city.

Later, an Israeli military spokesman claimed that Israeli aircraft on Saturday struck Iranian forces near Damascus to prevent a drone attack on Israel.

​This is not the first such instance. In July, a correspondent from the scene also reported that a series of powerful blasts had rocked the skies over Damascus.

Back then, a Syrian military source reported that the missile attacks were carried out by the Israeli Air Force. Back then, the attack resulted in four people being killed and 21 more wounded, according to the local media data.

Israel has previously admitted to carrying out “hundreds” of air attacks against Syria in recent years, saying that the strikes were aimed at countering alleged Iranian and Iranian-linked presence in the war-torn country.

Damascus has condemned the attacks as a blatant violation of international law. Iran has said that its presence in Syria has been limited to helping Damascus fighting terror groups.

Using militias to attack a state is a casus belli from the militias’ backer(s)…
Iran uses Hezbollah, Hamas and PIJ to attack Israel for decades…
Israelis should stop being so pacifists : the Mid-East doesn’t works like this! Only force is respected. If any time an Iranian proxy shoots toward Israel or attacks Jews, IDF retaliated directly on Iran, attacking its very economical structure, making billions of $ in damages, it’d soon become economically unsustainable to go on “poking” Israel.
Hamas has already targetted Dimona? Let’s target Busher, etc etc…
Iran likes to play dirty, I really don’t get why Israel plays so nice…

Can you do something instead of talking! SAA should strike back at the heart of the so called ‘telaviv’ (or whatever it’s called) always condemns condemns condemns condemns… condemning and talking too much is the reason why these animals keep attacking the capital!

Why SAA should strike? They’re not even targetted!
The 4 fatalities were 2 IRGC and 2 Hezbollah, two movements internationally recognised as terrorists with grim records : their cumulated attacks have it about 56 countries. IRGC even did several bombings in India while Hezbollah did bombings as far as in Argentina or Panama while taking care of export of Colombian cartels’ cocaine to Europe and the Mid-East.
IDF are not animals, they are soldiers protecting their countries, and they do it very well. It’s a pity the international community doesn’t help them more at going after such terror/criminal groups.

IAF communiqué says : “IAF fighter jets recently targeted a number of terror targets in Aqraba, Syria, southeast of Damascus. The strike targeted Iranian Quds Force operatives and Shiite militias which were preparing to advance attack plans targeting sites in Israel from within Syria over the last number of days. The thwarted attack included plans to launch a number of armed drones intended to be used to strike Israeli sites. The IDF is prepared to continue defending the State of Israel against any attempts to harm it and holds Iran and the Syrian regime directly responsible for the thwarted attack”… Read more »
