Israel Hints It Carried Out Airstrike on Damascus Airport

Thursday, April 27, 2017 |  Israel Today Staff
Israel’s Minister of Intelligence Israel Katz on Thursday strongly hinted that the Jewish state had carried out a large aerial strike on Damascus International Airport earlier in the day.
Various regional and international media reported massive explosions on the outskirts of Syria’s main airport early Thursday morning.
Hours later, Katz told Israel Radio: “We are acting to prevent the transfer of sophisticated weapons from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon by Iran. When we receive serious information about the intention to transfer weapons to Hezbollah, we will act. This incident is totally consistent with this policy.”
Arab media noted that warehouses used by Hezbollah and Iran to store weapons are located at the Damascus airport.
Syria previously threatened that if Israel again attacked targets on Syrian soil, there would be a severe military response.
