Israeli forces delivered military strikes against the Mezzah military air facility near the Syrian capital of Damascus early on Friday. The strikes targeted an ammunitions hub, producing an enormous explosion, according to reports.
There are no confirmed reports about casualties among Syrian military personnel that were deployed there.

The airport is a major logistical asset used by the Syrian government to transit troops and military supplies.
The Israeli strikes followed a suicide bombing conducted by the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham terrorist group which claimed lives of at least nine people.
The Syrian army has warned that there will be repercussions for Israel for the “flagrant attack” on the airport. The Syrian military also linked the alleged strike to Israel’s “support of terrorist groups.”
