Syrian media: IAF hit Scud shipment by Damascus

Created by Wibbitz
Syrian state media on Friday reported that overnight the Israeli Air Force (IAF) conducted an airstrike on a regime army base just outside of Damascus, apparently striking a shipment of Scud missiles.

The Syrian sources, including those identified with Bashar al-Assad's regime, said the target on Thursday night was a convoy from the base of the Syrian Army Brigade 155 in Al-Katifa, a northern suburb of Damascus, according to Channel 2.

A convoy of four trucks loaded with ballistic missiles was hit in the strike, and according to the report, the base houses long-range Scud missiles that are shipped from there to northern Syria as part of the civil war.

IAF jets struck after midnight when the truck convoy set out from the base as it passed through the mountains adjacent to Al-Katifa, heading for an unknown destination. It would seem likely the trucks may have been a Scud shipment to the Iran terror proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon, which is fighting for Assad.
