Report in Syria: Israel carried out air strike in Quneitra

Syria’s official news agency reported overnight Tuesday that Israel had carried out an air strike in the Quneitra area in the south of the country. The report said that the attack was carried out using missiles.

Earlier, the Lebanese news agency UNews, which is affiliated with Iran, reported that Israel targeted a military post west of the village of Khader in northern Quneitra near the border.

The attack was also reported on the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Mayadeen channel.

Two weeks ago, Syria’s official news agency reported explosions that were heard over Damascus.

Syrian television reported that the country’s air defense systems were activated following an Israeli air strike in the area of the capital.

The Saudi channel Al-Hadath claimed that the air strike attributed to Israel targeted a Hezbollah weapons shipment at a military airport south of Damascus.

Two weeks prior to that, Syrian media reported an Israeli air strike in the Damascus area.

According to the reports, explosions were heard in the area following the air strike, which Syria claimed targeted military installations. The country’s air defense systems were reportedly activated following the strike.

The IDF did not comment on the reports from Syria. WATCH
