DAMASCUS, Syria – An Israeli strike hit Damascus International Airport and other parts of the Syrian capital, killing five soldiers, state media reported Saturday.
The state-run SANA News Agency said the strike hit around 12:45 p.m.
It said there had been some “material losses”, without elaborating further.
Israel has not immediately acknowledged the attacks, but it comes amid a wider shadow war between the country and Iran. It has hit Damascus airport and Aleppo airport over fears it was being used to divert Iranian weapons into the country to support President Bashar Assad and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.
