The Israeli Air Force (IAF) reportedly attacked a shipment of weapons meant for the Hezbollah terror organization in Syria on Wednesday evening.
According to reports by Arab sources, which are considered unreliable, Israeli aircraft carried out strikes near the Damascus airport. The target of the strikes was an arms shipment for the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terror group, the reports said.
Some reports, linked to Syrian opposition groups, described loud explosions and pillars of smoke at the airport, which lost electricity completely.
The Israeli military declined to comment on the reports, as it has in the past when such reports have surfaced.
Israel has reportedly conducted several strikes in Syria in an attempt to prevent Hezbollah’s military build-up, and specifically its acquisition of advanced weaponry. Many of the weapons shipments are financed by Iran.
