(Worthy News) - Israel reportedly carried out an airstrike Wednesday near the airport in the Syrian capital Damascus, according to Israel's Channel 2 TV, which cited Syrian media reports.
The reports were unconfirmed but according to Syrian opposition groups, the target was a weapons shipments likely intended for Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, Israeli Channel 10 said.
Israel is reported to have been behind a series of air raids on Syrian soil, since the Syrian civil war began in March 2011, aimed at preventing advanced weapons shipments from Iran from reaching arch-enemy Hezbollah via Syria. [ Source ]
