BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 A.M.) – At approximately 1:05 A.M. (local time) last night, the Israeli Air Force unleashed their heaviest attack of the year on the Damascus countryside.
According to multiple sources in Damascus, the Israeli Air Force began their attack from the Jabal Sheikh (Mount Hermon) region along the Lebanese-Syrian border.
The sources said that the Israeli Air Force then conducted several airstrikes on the southwestern Damascus towns of Al-Jamraya and Al-Kisweh, hitting a number of sites in the process.
Following this attack, the Israeli Air Force launched another wave of strikes on these towns, causing an earthquake-like shockwave across the Syrian capital.
While the Syrian air defenses were able to down several of the Israeli missiles, a number of projectiles still managed to hit their intended targets.
These intended targets included a weapons storage that belonged to the Syrian Arab Army in the town of Al-Kisweh.
The Israeli Air Force would launch two more waves of strikes in Damascus and northwest Al-Sweida, the sources told Al-Masdar.
During their last two waves, the Israeli Air Force destroyed a radar site in northern Al-Sweida and bombarded a weapons depot near the Damascus International Airport.
As a result of these attacks by the Israeli Air Force, at least four Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers were killed and another half dozen military personnel were seriously wounded.
Finally, despite some reports that alleged the Syrian military fired retaliatory projectiles into the Golan Heights, a source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this morning that these claims were untrue.
