Damascus, SANA – The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said in a statement that the Israeli enemy targeted two areas in Damascus Countryside in al-Dimas and Damascus International Airport, which is a civilian airport, on Sunday afternoon, causing material damage to some facilities.
The General Command said this attack proves Israel’s direct involvement in supporting terrorists in Syria against which the Armed Forces achieved significant victories in Deir Ezzor, Aleppo, and other areas.
The statement said that this attack aimed at raising the morale of terrorist organizations, including the Al Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS, following the consecutive strikes directed against them by the Syrian Arab Army.
The General Command asserted that such acts of aggression will not dissuade it from continuing its war on terrorism in all its forms across the entirety of Syria.
The National Leadership of Al-Baath Arab Socialist Party issued a statement strongly condemning the Israeli aggression, saying that this attack comes as no surprise for the Syrians who know that the Israeli enemy will rush to aid its terrorist allies in a bid to raise their morale following the defeats they suffered at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army.
The statement said that the attack constitutes further evidence of the alliance between Israel and the terrorists against the Syrians who are committed to combating terrorism and protecting Syria’s independence and dignity, concluding by asserting that this aggression will only make Syrians more determined to persevere until victory is achieved.
