The Patriot missile launch came after Israel targeted an alleged arms depot with weapons sent from Iran to Hezbollah at the Damascus International Airport.
Several rockets were fired by Israeli warplanes at the Damascus International Airport and one of them hit the main fuel tanks at the airport causing a massive fire. This raises questions about the validity of the Israeli claims.
The Damascus International Airport returned to service at the same day. Sources from inside the airport confirmed that Syrian civil aircraft were not damaged, as well as the C-130 Iranian cargo planes deployed at the airport for the purposes of logistics support were not affected by the strike.
According to opposition sources, Israeli tanks took positions right on the Syrian border to secure engineer teams from the Israeli Defense Forces that were installing barbed wire on the border near the village of Kudanh in the western Quneitra countryside.
