Alleged Israeli Airstrike Targets Sites Near Damascus

by Touchpoint Israel

Syrian air defenses were activated in response to an alleged Israeli missile barrage targeting the vicinity of the capital Damascus, state media said early on Monday, January 31, citing a military source. This is the first alleged Israeli airstrike reported in Syria this year.

The missiles were launched from the direction of Riyaq, a Lebanese town east of Beirut, according to the Syrian SANA news agency.

The strikes targeted sites belonging to the Assad regime near Al-Qutayfah, northeast of Damascus, causing injuries and material damage.

A series of cargo flights on airlines used to transport Iranian weapons traveled between Iran and Syria in recent weeks, according to independent flight trackers.

The strike comes a week after Syrian and Russian military jets jointly patrolled the airspace along Syria’s borders, including along the Golan Heights.
