Rebel fighters in Syria have told Arabic-language media that Israel is responsible for explosions that rocked an airport outside Damascus, Israel’s Walla news reported Monday.

A huge explosion shook the Mezze military airport on the western edge of Damascus on Sunday night. Official Syrian State TV said that two car bombs were responsible for the explosions.  The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group based in Britain with a network of observers in Syria, also said that a car bomb was responsible for the explosion. Rebel fighters argued, however, that they wouldn’t have been capable of causing the tremendous damage witnessed at the site.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the compound is manned by Republican Guards, Special Forces and Airforce Intelligence,  and serves as a private airport for the Assad family.

Since the uprising, it has been used as an artillery and rocket base to target Sunni Muslim neighborhoods on the edge of the capital.

The IDF offered no comment on the reports that it was responsible for the strikes.

    If Jesus is on the way, how do you know and why has he taken so long to arrive and bring peace to the world? Where was he during the genocide in Rwanda or in Europe when the Nazis were murdering millions of people? Don’t believe in myths, it gets you nowhere.

      Jesus promise are valid,where the people died and suffer Jesus is present and suffer too. The prince of the world is still allowed to persecute and cause human to act in complete wrong way. Are you more smart the God? He had redeemer humanity and became love like a man to save as. Had God told Cain to kill Abel? God give choice to human and got better plane that our.
      By the way Israel had been reestablished in the 1948. One week 2018. Can be close the time. Don’t forget from the old testament guidance that God will not act to save Israel if not repent and ask for His help. Read the gospel and study the old testament and read the witnesses. Jesus is God the Son that had redeemed is people. The apostle where Jews, first Christian were Jews the received the Holy Spirit. Are you still go and pray to a wall constructed by Herod. Don’t worship idol!

Wake up before it is to late. Jesus is the way and the only way no other way to heaven except through Jesus he is love not hate.
