Israel conducted airstrikes on Saturday in the capital city of Damascus, the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria claimed.
According to the regime’s official news agency, citing a military source, the Israeli air force carried out the strikes on the Damascus airport and military points at around 12.45 a.m. local time.
The news agency said that the missiles were mostly intercepted by Syrian air defenses, while also noting that five soldiers died in the attacks.
A statement about the claim is yet to be issued by Israel.
It is known that there are military points belonging to Iran-allied militias and Hezbollah in Damascus, in addition to the regime army.
Aleppo Airport was targeted by Israeli forces and was temporarily out of service because of attacks on September 6 and August 31, the Assad regime had said.
Israeli officials generally refrain from commenting on attacks on Syrian territory.
Since 2011 when the Syrian civil war began, Israel has been sporadically carrying out attacks against Iranian-backed groups and regime military points in Syria.
