Airstrike in Syria, Israeli warplanes bombed two areas

According to the Syrian military, two areas near Damascus were bombed by the Israeli warplanes on Sunday striking near the city's international airport as well as outside a town close to the Lebanese border.

Since Syria's conflict began in March 2011, Israel has carried out several airstrikes in Syria that have targeted sophisticated weapons systems, including Russian-made anti-aircraft missiles and Iranian-made missiles, believed to be destined for Israel's arch foe, the Lebanese Hezbollah militant group.

The Syrian armed forces' general command said Sunday's 'flagrant attack' caused material damage, but did not provide any details on what was hit near the airport or in the town of Dimas, which is northwest of Damascus along the main highway from the capital to the Lebanese frontier.

There were no words on the casualties in the strikes.
