BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force launched a powerful attack on the Damascus International Airport over the weekend that caused several explosions around the capital city.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Israeli Air Force targeted an Iranian cargo plane that was likely transporting weapons to the Syrian military.
In response to the Israeli attack, the Syrian air defense attempted to intercept the missiles before they could reach their intended targets at the Damascus International Airport.
The Syrian air defense did manage to down several Israeli missiles during the brief exchange.
The Syrian military would later report that their air defense repelled the Israeli attack, adding that the Iranian cargo plane was untouched during the bombardment.
This latest attack by the Israeli Air Force marks the second time this year that they have targeted the Damascus International Airport.
