In the early morning hours today loud explosions were heard emanating from the capitol of Syria, Damascus. Social media and news channels in the local areas have reported that this was an Israeli airstrike that hit a Hezbollah arms depot.
“I can confirm that the incident in Syria completely conforms to Israel’s policy, to act so as to prevent the smuggling of advanced weapons from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon by Iran,” said Israeli intelligence minister Yisrael Katz. Meaning the Israeli intelligence is neither confirming or denying that this was in fact an Israeli air strike.
Strikes like this are usually attributed to Israel because it is no secret that Hezbollah (their slogan is death to Israel) has been receiving new advanced rockets and ballistic missiles from the governments of both Syria and Iran. All of those missiles have a target, and that target is and always will be Israel. Therefore, thinking logically, Israel would be at a even greater threat if these missile transfers go on without an airstrikes destroying as many of them as possible.
Lebanese media out lets have reported that the IAF jets were flying over the Golan Heights area still inside the Israeli annexed part of the Golan, when the jets fired missiles still from inside Israeli airspace, near the Damascus military airport, striking arms depots and warehouses.
