Syrian state media on Monday attributed several explosions in Damascus to the Israeli Air Force, though according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) the cause of the blasts was still being investigated.
It was the second alleged Israeli strike on the Syrian capital in the past few days, after Syria’s Defense Ministry reported on Friday that air defenses had intercepted Israeli missiles over the city and its suburbs.
In September, an airstrike in the Damascus region attributed to the IAF reportedly killed five Syrian soldiers, while in June, reports said that IAF strikes took Damascus International Airport out of commission for almost two weeks.
Syria’s northern Aleppo airport was also targeted, in both August and September.
