Israeli warplanes strike near Damascus, launching 4 rockets across border – reports

Israeli fighter jets have reportedly hit Hezbollah militia targets in a cross-border attack on the government-controlled Syrian town of Al-Saboorah, a western Damascus suburb, according to Al-Masdar News agency and local reports. Four missiles were reportedly fired.

The Israeli Air Force allegedly launched four air-to-surface Popeye missiles from Lebanese airspace, Al-Masdar reports, adding that the rockets were targeting Hezbollah targets within the striking distance.

The jets themselves are not believed to have breached the Syrian airspace.

There have been conflicting reports over the initial target of the raid with speculations swirling over what targets were actually hit during the sorties.

Lebanomn’s Mulhak News reported citing own sources that Syria’s army ammunition depot was destroyed in one of the raids, while in the other a number of cars left near to the Damascus-Beirut Highway were damaged. The outlet stated that no senior security or political commanders have been killed in the attack.

Al-Masdar News also cited unconfirmed reports indicating that one of the missiles struck a car repair shop which was used by Hezbollah. No casualties have resulted from the sortie as mechanics were not at the workplace at night hours, it reported.

Other reports indicate that Israeli forces targeted a Hezbollah arms convoy near Damascus.
