Syria accuses Israel of strike near Damascus airport

Syria accuses Israel of strike near Damascus airportSyria accused Israel of firing several missiles Thursday at a military position near Damascus airport, triggering a huge explosion and prompting a call from regime ally Russia for restraint. The Israeli military later said it shot down “a target” over the occupied Golan Heights neighbouring Syria, although it was unclear whether the two incidents were linked. Israel has carried out multiple air strikes in Syria since the country’s civil war erupted in 2011, most of which it has said targeted arms convoys or warehouses of its Lebanese arch-foe Hezbollah, which is a key supporter of the Syrian regime.
