Syrian Army, Allies Approaching Terrorist-held Air Base in the North

Syrian Army, Allies Approaching Terrorist-held Air Base in the North

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Israeli air strikes targeted early Tuesday positions for regime forces in Al-Qutayfah area and Lebanon's "Hezbollah" weapons depot, igniting "successive explosions and fires, and causing material damage".

Israel then fired ground-to-ground rockets from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, but the Syrian defences brought the missiles down, the Syrian army said.

In its statement, the Syrian army repeated previous warnings of serious repercussions for the strikes and repeated its past accusation that Israel was using attacks to support militant groups in Syria.

When asked about the alleged attacks inside Syria, Netanyahu said Israel was ready to stop weapons from reaching the Lebanon-based Hezbollah armed group, which has backed the Syrian government in its almost seven-year civil war with rebel forces.

An Israeli military spokeswoman declined to respond to the Syrian statement.

The Syrian army announced the attacks on state television.

The Israeli military did not comment on reports of the attack, which is its standing policy.

Israel's Security Cabinet held a long meeting Sunday on the situation on the Lebanese and Syrian borders.

Separately, Russia's Defense Ministry said that a US Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft was detected cruising between Tartus and Hmeimim during a UAV attack on the Russian military facilities in Syria, which was carried out by terrorists.

"The recurring Israeli attacks on Syria will not succeed in protecting the terrorist organisations, which are Israel's partners and proxies", the official news agency SANA quoted the ministry as saying. About 1.1 of the people living in the region have been forced to flee there from other regions.
