Israel bombs Syrian research facility


Israeli fighter jets launched an attack from Lebanese airspace, which they repeatedly violated, on the research center in Jamraya.

As on January 10, Israel claimed to have targeted weapons allegedly bound for Hezbollah.

On January 10, the Syrian military authorities declared that Israel had in reality destroyed some transmission equipment, confiscated from the jihadists and stored in the research center to be examined. This time, however, they have indicated that the raid was launched to break the siege of armed Al-Ghioucha Al-Charghiya groups. On its part, Iranian television reports the destruction of one of the Israeli planes, while Israeli television talks about two destroyed aircraft.

The attack this morning shook the entire city. However, there is no confirmation that a similar raid took place on the night of 3-4 May, as has been alleged by the Western media.
