Israeli Regime Attacks Military Airbase near Damascus, Syria

Friday 13 January 2017
Israeli Regime Attacks Military Airbase near Damascus, Syria

Alwaght- Israeli regime carried out a rocket attack against a Syrian Air Force installation southwest of the capital Damascus causing a huge explosion.

The Israeli rockets struck the Mezzeh Military Airport, less than eight kilometers southwest of Damascus, early on Friday, and caused a large fire, but there has been no immediate report of casualties, Reuters reported.

Syrian state TV quoted the army command as saying that the rockets, which it said were fired from an area close to the Sea of Galilee in the north of the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, hit the airport’s compound.

Earlier reports said the rockets had targeted an arms depot at the military installation. 

Several loud explosions were reportedly heard after the attack against the major facility for the elite Republican Guards.

The Syrian army also vowed to take revenge for the "flagrant" attack and "amputate the arms of the perpetrators."

"The Syrian army command and armed forces warn Israel of the repercussions of the flagrant attack and stresses its continued fight against (this) terrorism," it said in a statement.

The Syrian military source called the missile attack against the Mezzeh airbase part of “desperate attempts by the Israeli enemy to support terrorist groups and raise their low morale.”

The Mezzeh airbase reportedly hosts the headquarters of the Air Force Intelligence Directorate.
