Syria State Media: 2 Israeli Missiles Hit Area near Airport

Tuesday, 26 June 2018 02:38 AM EDT

BEIRUT (AP) — Syria state media reports that two Israeli missiles have struck an area near the Damascus International Airport but didn't name a target.

State news agency SANA says the strike Tuesday happened shortly after midnight. The agency linked the reported Israeli attack to the government's ongoing offensive against rebel groups in Syria's southwestern region, which borders Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and Jordan.

SANA said the strike is part of Israel's support for the rebels amid their "major losses" in the south and elsewhere in Syria.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported the strikes, saying Israeli jets flew over the Golan Heights and targeted suspected weapons depots for Iranian-backed militias.

The area has come under repeated attacks, mostly believed to be by Israel. Israel rarely comments on such strikes.
