Israel Attacks Sites Around Syrian Capital, Targeting Shi'ite Bases

• https://news.antiwar.com, by Jason Ditz

For the third time in the last 10 days, Israeli warplanes fired missiles into the area around the Syrian capital of Damascus, with reports that they were targeting bases belonging to Shi'ite militias and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

Explosions were reported south and west of the capital, and Syrian state media reported their air defenses activated, and intercepted most of the incoming missiles.

The bases said hit were reportedly linked to Hezbollah, which is a common justification for recent Israeli attacks on Syria. Three were reported killed in the attacks.

As usual, the Israeli government is not responding to the reported attacks, saying they don't react to anything first reported in the foreign press. Officials often make reference to such attacks, but generally not at the time they occur.
