Three dead in Israeli airstrikes, Syria says — RT World News

Israeli planes fired missiles at Damascus suburbs and Tartous area, Syrian media report quoting military

Three soldiers were killed and three others injured in an Israeli airstrike on the outskirts of Damascus on Sunday, a Syrian military source confirmed to the SANA news agency. The missiles were reportedly fired at the Damascus and Tartous area from Lebanese territory.

The country’s air defenses had engaged “hostile targets” on Tartous, reports SANA.

On Friday, Israeli tanks wounded two civilians near the town of al-Hamidiyah in the Golan Heights.

Last month, Israel killed eight people in airstrikes in the Damascus area, including five civilians, and injured seven others. According to SANA, the missiles came from the Golan Heights.

Israel destroyed much of Damascus International Airport in June, forcing the country to reroute flights through Aleppo as several runways, hangars and a control tower were destroyed.

While Israel regularly bombs Syria, it avoids publicly acknowledging its actions. Meanwhile, Syrian state media claimed the US had stepped up its smuggling of Syrian oil, transferring 89 fuel tankers to Iraq on Saturday just hours after a previous shipment of 60 tankers crossed the border. .

Syria’s Oil Ministry accused the United States earlier this month of stealing 83% of Syria’s daily oil production, imposing losses of $105 billion since the start of the war. Military convoys were filmed believed to be smuggling Syrian oil into Iraq through illegal border crossings.
