While You Were in Shul: Israel Attacked Iranian Warehouse in Damascus

Israeli warplanes have fired a number of missiles towards Damascus, triggering Syrian air defence that shot down a lot of them, according to state media reports.

Al Arabiya quoted the Syrian state news agency SANA as stating that one of the airport warehouses was hit during the attack.

The official said Israeli aircraft coming from the south fired several missiles at areas near Damascus around 11:15 PM.

In an earlier report, SANA had spoken of Syrian air defence batteries attacking "enemy targets".

Incidentally, this was the first Israeli airstrike on the Damascus area in 2019. Explosions were heard in one of the videos.

Israel has mounted attacks in Syria as part of its efforts to counter the influence carved out there by Iran, which is supporting President Bashar al-Assad in the war that erupted in 2011.

He also reportedly noted that the prime target of Israel was Iran, who has repeatedly insisted that its presence in Syria is limited to military advisors assisting Syrian forces in their fight against terrorism.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said airstrikes targeted an area near the airport while others hit the area of Kiswa, which is home to positions and storage sites for Iranian and Hezbollah terror forces allied with Syria's government.

Syrian Foreign Ministry said last month that the repeated Israeli attacks on Syria aim to prolong the more than seven-year war in the country.

Israel has not responded to the allegations it was involved in that incident, but previous Israeli air strikes inside Syrian territory have drawn criticism and recently caused tensions with Russian Federation, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
