Israel Conducts Airstrikes at Syrian Artillery near Damascus

TEHRAN (FNA )- Israel attacked a position of the Syrian Army in Zabadani that was used by government and Hezbollah’s joint troops to pound terrorists, according to a military source.

The Israeli Air Force has carried out airstrikes against an artillery position of the Syrian Army near the town of Zabadani, around 45 km (28 miles) from Syria’s capital Damascus, a military source told Sputnik on Thursday.

“Israeli Air Force planes carried out airstrikes at an artillery position belonging to the Syrian Army,” the source said. “The artillery was used by the army to repel attacks from militants in the eastern part of Zabadani.”

The source added that terrorists attacked Syrian army positions on the east side of Zabadani in the early hours of Thursday. The Syrian military, supported by the artillery shelling, managed to repel the attack after a three-hour battle.

After the Israeli Air Force carried out the airstrike, militants reportedly launched a second assault attempt, also repelled by the government’s forces, according to the source.

The Syrian army and Hezbollah troops on Wednesday completed their mop-up operations in the city of Zabadani that was seized back from the terrorists last week.

“The resistance forces have purged terrorists from Zabadani in a two-day operation,” an informed source told FNA on Wednesday.

The sources added that the terrorists had dug tunnels underneath the buildings in Zabadani to get to other parts of the city. The Syrian army and popular forces seized the city of Zabadani on September 1.

On Sunday, military sources said that the Syrian Army and the Hezbollah, in their mop-up operations in Zabadani, uncovered one of the largest supply tunnels of rebel groups in Zabadani area.

The sources said that the Syrian Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – uncovered one of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s large supply tunnels that stretched from the Beit Al-Dalati neighborhood to the outskirts of Southern Zabadani.

The large tunnel unearthed by the Syrian army and Hezbollah was used by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham militants to resupply and reinforce their embattled combatants that were completely surrounded by the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance near Zabadani’s city-center.

Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with government forces fighting extremist and terrorist groups, including the notorious Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS and IS).

  1. We surmise Syria does not have functioning S-300’s and Israel will continue doing what it always does. Russia has essentially dithered away an opportunity to easily supply Syria with the capability of air self defense. Regrets?

  2. One would think that would be the legal obligation of the UN to call for a NFZ to stop a terrorist state from supporting their proxy. Unfortunately the UN is just another one those useless world Bodies.

    • the “United NAZI-ons” first act was handing over the land to zios,
      who had just terrorized 3/4 million people to take it from them.
      the “UN” is a terrorist organization that supports terrorists.

  3. hell yes izrahell should be declared a no-fly zone for its long running active support of terrorists and for BEING a rogue terrorist “state”. why the hell are WE made to pay them welfare checks every year and all the military hardware they could want?
    “oh hey we bombed the hell outta Gaza so give us more bombs!”
    the only “God” who could have chosen them is friggin lucifer okay.
