Israel attacks Hezbollah in Damascus. Above, footage of Israeli missile strike on the Syrian Mazzeh airbase near Damascus.
“At 3:00 a.m., on December 7th the Israeli enemy fired several surface-to-surface missiles from inside occupied territory,” the Syrian state news agency SANA said, citing a military source. The report said the Israeli missiles caused a large fire but no injuries or deaths.
SANA said the missiles were fired from a position “west of Tal Abu Nada,” a mountain in the Israeli Golan Heights known as Mount Avital in Israel.
The Syrian military source called the alleged missile attack against the Mazzeh airbase part of “desperate attempts by the Israeli enemy to support terrorist groups and raise their low morale.”
Other Arabic media, including al Jazeera and al Arabiya, confirmed that a large explosion had occurred at the airport. Some reports said the fire was caused when a weapons depot exploded.
A video of the explosion at the airport spread through social media.
The Mazzeh airbase, less than eight kilometers (five miles) southwest of Damascus, hosts the headquarters of the feared air force intelligence service and its notorious prison.
While reports of Israeli airstrikes in Syria have become frequent in recent years, claims Israel used surface-to-surface missiles to strike targets near Damascus are highly unusual.
In December, 2015, some Syrian reports claimed Israel using surface-to-surface missiles fired from within Israel
