Israel launches airstrikes around Damascus

The official Syrian news agency SANA reported that at around 00:25 a.m., Israel launched an airstrike with missile explosions targeting specific positions around Damascus. 

The strike injured two soldiers and caused material damage. Most of the missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems. 

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor, said the strikes targeted military positions near the airport in the town of Dimas and the Beirut-Damascus highway west of the capital.

It added that the strikes also targeted warehouses belonging to the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement, which helps Damascus fight foreign-backed militants and terrorists.

The Observatory said it was the 20th Israeli raid so far this year.
