Israeli Air Force Targets 2 Syrian Army Bases Outside Damascus

Israel on Monday waged two missile attacks on Syrian military bases near Damascus, Syrian state media and local activists reported.

The Bashar al-Assad regime said the Israeli missiles had targeted the town of Jamraya, about 5 km northwest of the capital.

Local activists said the second Israeli strike hit a radar base near the Dumeir military airport, 45 km east of Damascus.

State television said three other Israeli missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defenses.

Monday’s attack came days after Israeli air forces destroyed an Iranian arms depot in the town of Al-Qiswa, which was under construction, the Times of Israel news website reported.
