Breaking: Israel Launches Second Round of Airstrikes Over West Syria
The Israeli Air Force has resumed their airstrikes over west Syria, targeting Brigade 68 Base in Khan Al-Sheih (Rif Dimashq Governorate) and Brigade 90 Base in the Al-Quneitra Governorate after a six hour absence that followed their multiple air raids over the Golan Heights earlier today.
Brigade 68 Base is the new target for the Israeli Air Force; however, the base possesses no immediate threat to Israel, as it is located on the outskirts of Khan Al-Sheih – a contested city that is located in Syria’s Rif Dimashq Governorate.
The Brigade 68 Base has no heavy weaponry that can reach Israel’s borders and the soldiers inside its parameters have been under siege by the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Ajnad Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Islam.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Israeli aircrafts were identified as helicopters that crossed into the Syrian Golan Heights before midnight on Thursday night.
As of now, no casualties have confirmed by Syrian Armed Forces; however, these recent airstrikes are believed to have been more intense that the previous round of attacks launched by the Israeli Air Force.
Reports of the Syrian Air Defense’s responding to the encroaching enemy aircraft have been denied by ground sources.
