Syrian air defenses responded to an Israeli missile attack on Damascus International Airport on September 15, downing a number of missiles. There have so far been no reports of damages done to the airport or nearby buildings.

A source in the Syrian military told SANA that there were no casualties.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, commenting on the recent airstrikes on Damascus airport, that the country is “constantly working” to prevent its enemies from “arming themselves with advanced weaponry.”

He added that Israel is determined to enforce its “red lines” when necessary.

The head of the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the airstrike’s target was a weapons depot allegedly filled with arms either for Hezbollah or Iranian military forces that which Tel Aviv claims are present in Syria.

The Israeli military hasn’t commented on the report by the SOHR.

Earlier, Syrian state news agency SANA reported, citing a source in the military, that country’s air defenses had intercepted several Israeli missiles, targeting Damascus International Airport at 9:50 p.m. (6:50 GMT).

The source said that there were only material damages from the airstrike and no casualties. The IDF spokesperson declined to comment on the news.

SANA last reported Israeli strikes on September 4, when Syrian air defenses intercepted several missiles in the coastal province of Tartus and in central Hama.

In May, Tel Aviv attacked dozens of targets in Syria, claiming that it was targeting Iranian forces allegedly present in the Arab Republic.

According to Israel, Iranian troops had fired 20 rockets at Israeli positions in the Golan Heights. Tehran denied having military bases in Syria. Both Damascus and Tehran condemned Israel for carrying out the airstrikes.

Not since the partition when part of Palestine was renamed Israel. BTW. The UK sold Palestine to two Allies during WW I. Anyway. Maybe update. At the same time in 1948 when the Palestinians had to abandon part of their land to the Zionists etc. the Muslim nations threw out the Mizrahim (Eastern or Arabic Jews) and confiscated their possessions. By 2018 these Mizrahim Jews are the majority in Israel – the Zionist Ashkenasim are not -. While the Muslim Arabs are the winners of the 1948 population and property exchange they failed to reimburse the Palestinians from their spoils… Read more »

Regardless, one cannot simply buy and sell land that does not rightfully belong to them.

https://epfnational.org/map-palestine-years/

Maybe you could explain the increase of land allotted to the Israeli state during the years 1948-49, because it sure has nothing to do with muslim arabs winning anything. The maps clearly show the theft of an increasing percentage of PALESTINIAN land from its rightful owners by jewish squatters under the name of Israel expansionism.

These maps are bogus baby! The 1947 UN partition was PROPOSED and rejected by? ARABS! Actually, the ONLY map to be legal under international law is the 1922 San Remo treaty and it will be the case as long a new land treaty is signed between PNA and Israel… Here is the 1920 map. And all this was supposed to go to… Jews, see Balfour Declaration… http://a405.idata.over-blog.com/4/05/34/95/1920-mandate_for_palestine.jpg Then UK started to block settlements.

@Rebbe. Obviously the UK sold land the Entente had conquered during WW I. Balfour’s Promise. This was legalised via the League of Nations – UN – just like the theft of German soil after WW I and WW II. In Palestine there were also areas that were predominantly Jewish before 1948. That the Arabs owned all land and were the sole inhabitants of Palestine is a Muslim myth. You do not know what Mizrahim (Eastern or Arabic Jews) are and what land was confiscated from them. The Mizrahim owned land in their Muslim home countries. This was taken from them… Read more »

You complicate it needlessly Stern/irgun with your falsehoods. The simple truth is the land of Palestine belongs to the Palestinian people who were native to the area long before the zionist creation of Israel. The taking of this land by force is called theft.

@Rabbe, You speak like a true Zionist rabbi. Your Jiahdi political allies and the Zionists do not want to see what they have caused to he Palestinians and Mizrahim (Eastern or Arabic Jews) alike.

That part of Palestine that harbours Israel now had a Jewish/Christian not a Muslim Arab majority even before WW I. It cannot totally be owned by Arab Muslim Palestinians who only pretend that they are the original natives.

p.s. Taking things by force is called robbery not theft.

@Sweety. Refugees have to abandon their land no matter whether force is used.

Many Palestinians went because of Arab war propaganda. Many were forced.

Now many years later all Palestinians claim they were forced.

p.s. How come there are Arabs in Israel as citizens if all Muslim and Christian Arabs were forced to leave?

Response to PS. They didn’t get the job done. They only got roughly 850,000. 20% were Christians. The Catholic Church vehemently objected and still has the documentation. Put yourself in their shoes. Zionist from Europe came into their homes and began shooting them. Some were shot and some chose to leave rather than being killed. They burnt their vineyards & crops, killed livestock, bulldozed homes/structures. This is by no means abandonment but rather 2 bad choices, be killed or leave. In response to they left due to Arab propaganda. They feared for their lives due to zionist violence. I can… Read more »

“Seek the truth and Harden not your heart.” The Zionist Ashkenasim behaved towards Palestinians – like the Muslim neighbour countries people to the Mizrahim (Eastern or Arabic Jews). They stole where they could and killed those who did not let go. For centuries again and again. Their Muslim faith legalised it. And Zionism legalized taking the holy land in the same way. The Mizrahim are the majority in Israel now. This is the truth which mostly likely will also fall upon death ears of those with hardened hearts. Especially those anti-Semites who see only the Palestinians as victims. p.s. Stop… Read more »

Ahh Israeli diplomacy at its finest. Why try and have peaceful dialogue and negotiations when you can just bomb the s**t out of nations and states who you deem a threat ? Palestine has neither a standing army, navy or air force but it does not stop Israel bombing, killing, maiming and terrorising the rightful owners to this land. How can a defenceless people be an existential threat to the might of Israel ?My mistake they have bottle rockets and kites. Syria likewise is no threat to them, itself fighting a battle for its life against jihadist terrorists who have,… Read more »

Since you are using a Tyson analogy in his prime he was the best, no doubt.
But times they change and eventually he got to a point in his career where everybody he fought was knocking him out. It’s only a matter of time. They always say that a boxer should quit while he is ahead, but the problems arise when they still think they are competitive and want just one more fight. History tells us that all civilizations and powerful armies eventually fall. Think Sparta !

They actually did, and quite brilliantly so, go and check about operation Kaman 99, and Morvarid. In the first it was more or less like an Alpha Strike that pounded the h**l out of basically every air-base infrastructure in the country, the devastation rendered the Iraqi airbase unusable for months, and it would have been along with its planes if it wasn’t for the Arab coalition against it that allowed dozens of them to shelter after they drew first blood against Iran.
