Posted 27 April 2017 · Add Comment

It has been reported that Israeli air strikes have hit an arms depot operated by the Lebanese Hezbollah group near Damascus airport.

Al Jazeera has reported witnesses said a total of five strikes occurred near the Damascus airport road, about 25km from the capital, early this morning.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said:“ "I can confirm that the incident in Syria corresponds completely with Israel's policy to act to prevent Iran's smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah ... Naturally, I don't want to elaborate on this.

"The prime minister has said that whenever we receive intelligence that indicated an intention to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, we will act." Said Katz.

The explosions have caused a huge fire and material damage.  As yet, no casualties have been reported.
