JNS.org – Israeli fighter jets carried out an airstrike against targets inside Syria late Wednesday night, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed Thursday.

The alleged attack was the second airstrike attributed to Israel in Syria over the past week. Senior Damascus officials denied the reports, as did the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah’s Al-Manartelevision network. Israeli officials had no comment on the matter.

The first report of the alleged airstrike said Israeli fighter jets fired missiles at a Syrian army outpost south of Damascus. According to that report, three missiles struck the outpost and caused immense damage. There were no reports of casualties.

Later, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights updated its report to say the airstrike was aimed at facilities belonging to Unit 155 of the Syrian army, which oversees, among other things, the storage of the country’s Scud missiles.

According to the updated report, a shipment of Scuds earmarked for Hezbollah in Lebanon was destroyed. Opposition websites in Syria and Lebanon also claimed that Israeli jets hit a truck that was transferring Scuds and other weapons.

    this deutsche welle story isn’t much more than a bubbe maisse. the source is hearsay, from a london organization that gathers social media “reports”, to which they added a stock photo of an iaf f-16, some rumours of previous unconfirmed raids, and some disinformation about a “50-year” (sic) syrian quest for peace. obviously, deutsche welle didn’t think it was worth assigning a real reporter to the story…
