Israeli Air Force warplanes bombed the area of the Damascus International Airport early on Thursday, the Syrian Defense Ministry announced in a statement at its website.

According to the statement, airstrikes hit objects in southwestern the international airport. The ministry confirmed that airstrikes caused some damage and denied any casualties.

The statement also said that Israel airstrikes are aimed at supporting terrorists in Syria.

According to media rerports, at least 5 airstrikes hit the airport area on around 3:00-3:30 A.M. local time.

Reuters reported (citing own sources)that the airstrikes hit a military hub operated by Hezbollah.

    Such a force for good in the region by helping ISIS…

  • Joe Doe

    Looks like the S-300 and S-400 is nothing more than paper tiger or Russia is providing codes to the Israelis. Therefore the missiles or airplanes are not detected

    • qveenz

      Some information indicates that they are striking from the Lebaneese teritory.

    • NeoLeo

      Israeli general said they wont attack russian airplanes even if they mistakenly cross into israeli airspace… why do you think Russians are going to attack israeli planes (over Lebanon)?

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        Because Israel is a nation full of those who committed the Holodomor against the ethnic-Russians and genocided some 45,000,000 Christians before fleeing into Israel years after.
        The war criminals must be brought to international justice.

    Looks like Assad and his General had not study WW2, specially churchill signing agreement with American to arm and train UK army. The same should do Assad, rearm and train SAA with most advance military hardware in major scale. 3-4 tanks here or there will not due the job. In additions tanks this days don’t play major role in wars. Attack helicopter, airplane, missile launcher etc.. Assad will needs the advanced military hardware to win the war and defend SYria after the war. LOnger he waits more he will lose

    • Derapage

      Who pays? Assad can not even extract gas at this time. The economy of war is a bad beast: few income and general dissatisfaction.

      • wwinsti

        Syria has already paid for weapons that russia failed to deliver due to pressure from the UN.

      • Joe Doe

        Russia can provide loan guarantee. This will cost at the beginning but in long terms this will pay off. The war is already 6 years, during the time nothing was produce only destroyed. With advanced weapons Assad can have strong army and after defeating ISIS and FSA. Assad could retake Golan Heights. He has nothing to loose as the SYria is already destroyed and there is nothing more to destroy only israelis will lose in that war

          gholann… do not smoke herbal drugs

    • Bill Wilson

      You need to study WW2. The British didn’t need any help training their army and produced most of their weapons. The US supplied them with whatever they were short on.

  • gfsdyughjgd .

    Putin’s best friend Erdogan will ruin Russian peace plan of Astana together with Israel Netanyahu.USA/Nato will always come in as reserves to destroy Syria’s infrastructure.All this countries will keep on informing the Russians before the attacks.The truth is Russian defence shields are either useless.How many time did Russia strengthen this shield or Putin’ is promised shares in Turkey north stream oil and gas pipeline which will be created through Syria.Syrian allies are weaken by this unsure operations with proud Russians and greedy USA/Nato agendas.Syrian government can’t work with Erdogan because his having a big knife with which he stab everyone in the back.Exclude Erdogan or there will be no peace.

    • Joe Doe

      The peace plan is gone and Turks humiliate Russia again.

  • Wahid Algiers

    The fucken zionists hit Damascus International Airport with 5 airstrikes
    this night to attack Hezbollahs supply line. It is time for a powerful
    reaction.

    • Bill Wilson

      They’ll just wail loudly while tearing at their clothes.

  • Aurelian

    It is beyond my comprehension why weapons for Hezbollah are not stored in bunkers at least 30 feet underground.

    The Russians are not gonna engage unless their forces are targeted directly, they might as well go home they can kiss goodbye to their port and airfield as well.

    Russia&Iran never went all in now they will pay the price russia out of the mid-east, Iran next when the syrians are defeated

    • Joe Doe

      Weapons for Hezbollah is fake justification to attack Syria. For me it’s hard to believe Hezbollah will store weapons in SYria International Airport or even Syrian Government will allow such storage, when this AirPort was already attacked before

      • NeoLeo

        Exactly.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        could be delivered by plane

  • hvaiallverden

    This is The reason for stopping my comments on what the Russians and others are doing this days.

    To me, this is the prof of how rotten and corrupt the Russian/Putin is, back stabbing, lying coward rats, and have flushed their own credibility down the drain, I wounder what kind of moronic babbling the coward Russians would serve this time, and the “brilliant” strategist Putin.
    huh
    Of course He cant do shit, or maneuver anywhere when He have His head up the asses of the scums of this earth, the Jooos.
    The Scums of this earth little lap dog, yeah, nice doggy Putin, lie down and play dead, doggy, doggy and Putin the only thing this “briliant” strategist Putin is able to do, coward as He/They are.
    Russia is an country you simply cant trust any way, its been proven time and time again, all huff and puff and no balls unless its an minority witch like the Wankees they just run over, proves just how rotten they are.
    I know they are flying home with their tail behind their legs, and we know Israel controls Russia.
    Yeah, coward creeps, I have no respect left what so ever,
    Its never been so obvious as now, how corrupt and coward the Russians are, de facto and de jure, an pack of lying rotten souls, and I know Syria is gone, chopped up while the Russians is whining about issues totally irrelevant, they continue to let the Jooos slaughter anyone they dont like.

    Do notice this Lebanese, Iranians and Iraqis, you simply cant take anything they say for anything at all, they are like what I have learned about Russians, equally rotten as the scums of this earth, unless you have them by their balls you can never ever trust them to do anything witch is been agreed upon, exactly like the Wankees, and the Jooooos, kick in faces on people already lying down, yeah, and Putin is slipping at home as well.
    This is because of bending over and grabbing ankles is what Putin/Russians is the champion of doing, of course Judo helps to trust your head further up the ass of NothingButYahoho, Israel the people that controls the Russian duma, as they do with the bonkers Jabba The Trumps WH is, stinking rotten corrupt as the wankees are, people are naive when they trust Russia, this should wake you up, never, ever trust the Russians, as long you have cash, of course, and something to sell, yeah, but never ever trust them when the shit hits the fan.

    Hurmf.

  • gold37

    Syrian intel needs to improve, hit Israel where it hurts, you don’t have to hit them in Israeli territory. Round up their assets within Syria, have false flag ‘shipments’ that ends up being an ISIS convoy, something. You can’t be passive all the time.

    • Joe Doe

      I agree, but Syria has only old defence System and most likely does not function correctly. They need better defence system to hit Israelis in next attack

      • Wahid Algiers

        The Zionists always say they were trying to get Hezbollah with these attempts, cowardly as they are because nearly all fighters are involved in Syria. But in real they want to score and provoke Syria and Iran. As long the Zionists tell this fairy tale and Russia beliefs it, Russia won’ t intervene because they argue that Hezb is in Syria to assist the gov. as they do too. The Gov. needs to make an agreement for modern air defense equipments and advisors of Iran. Iran interests are Syria and Hezb. So I wonder they show no reaction.

      • gold37

        I get what you are saying but, I am not referring to a direct military attack, I am talking about catching the spies that pass the information on where to attack. One day it’s Hader, nexts day its Damascus and they are all legitimate targets, either killing generals of SAA, Palestenian Militia’s, Hezbollah or arms depots. Who is passing the intel? that should be their first question!

        Syria has several mobile systems which can take down Cruise missiles
        One would imagine that Damascus International Airport would have Pantsir at least.
        Syria’s air defence commander should be fired after this event and the many others.
        Russian radar would have the Israeli Aircraft painted on standoff attack.
        Did they not notify Syrian Airdefence?
        If the attack was on Hezbollah weapons near the airport, …then these stupid asses
        Need to move their goodies away from Syrian assets like the airport.
        Put the shit in a Shia Mosque …lol.

      • gold37

        This is what I was talking about, the spy stations and jamming devices to monitor airports around Damascus. https://southfront.org/syrian-war-report-april-28-2017-govt-forces-advance-on-multiple-fronts/

    • wwinsti

      Syrians can do major damage to Israel at any time, the trouble is both Israel and syria are vulnerable in ways most people scarcely suspect , even old air defense missiles can take out airliners from hundreds of miles away. Syria has several accurate ballistic missiles that would reach an airport. The the Zionists would seek massive retaliation, and have the means to inflict it. Larger numbers of smaller air defense systems are key, like the Tunguska and tor (the Syrians have small numbers already). These weapons can negate the need for retaliation by making a much more difficult defense to pass through. Such systems are good at shooting down cruise missiles in addition to planes and can hide within a city quite easily.

  • Thegr8rambino

    I remember reading that if Israel kept up its airstrikes, Syria will launch SCUDS into Israel. PLEASE KEEP YOUR WORD SYRIA AND MAKE US ALL HAPPY CAMPERS!!!! :)

  • gustavo

    Using the same philosophy, Damasco should bomb DIMONA because of nuclear bombs storage in underground facility.

    • Brad Isherwood

      Hezbollah has been taking punch after punch from Israhell for years in this Syrian conflict.
      Israel assassinated Hezbollah and Iranian military commanders.
      Iran too…is kinda lame on the strong man image.
      Too much weird talk…like…We will send Roaring Missiles.

      Hezbollah, Iran and Syria should be embarrassed, ……Jews are kicking their ass.

  • Free man

    People expect Russia to fight a nuclear power because Iran is smuggling weapons to Hizballah.
    Be realistic.
    Assad should call Putin every morning and thank him for the fact that he and his family slept the night before in their palace in Damascus.

    • Bill Wilson

      Assad probably called Putin to inform him that Iran was dropping off a load of weapons there for Hezbollah to hustle back to Lebanon and not to get upset when the IAF flies in to destroy them since it’s not in their best interest to have Hezbollah too well armed inside Lebanon.

      I remember Assad’s daddy sending in troops to control the Bekka Valley when it was threatened by various militias, including Hezbollah. That’s when that terrorist organization was taking over villages and kicking out their residents to expand their territorial holdings. Hezbollah fighters has experienced a very percentage of deaths and casualties so may have plans to replace them with Iranians. They should have an easy time doing that now since Assad has Hezbollah stationed along the Lebanese border.

      • XRGRSF

        Are you certain that you’re not confusing Hezbollah with Israel or ISIS?

      • Free man

        I read on Russian websites that Hezbollah accuses the Syrians of transferring information to Israel.
        So you may be right.

    • XRGRSF

      Your premise works both ways. Do you expect Israel to fight a nuclear power in order to continue harassing Hezbollah? Perhaps you should be more realistic.

      “Slept the night before in their palace in Damascus”? OK, where does your president sleep; in a tent?

      • Free man

        1. I responded to the claims that ” Russia should fight Israel. And if they don’t they are not reliable and Assad must expel them from Syria.”
        2. Assad should thank mainly Russia for being still in office. I hope that your feelings were not harmed, in Assad name, on the issue of sleeping arrangements (-;
        3. The “game” between Hezbollah and Israel will continue in the near future. The Iranians will continue to send weapons that will be bombed by Israel, and no one should intvin.

        • zman

          Putin should thank Assad for not granting the pipeline the KSA and Qattar are wanting. Such a pipeline would do to Russia what all the sanctions could not…cripple Russias economy. Which is the whole reason why Syria is so important to all involved. As for Hezbollah, one can only hope that they once again get the chance to embarrass Israel like the last time Israel invaded Lebanon. Israel is scared shitless of them for good reason. Here’s hoping Hezbollah gets what they need. If Syria can obtain enough newer missile systems to cover more of the country and not just critical installations, possibly Israel could be stopped in their criminal endeavors. As for non-intervention, that should go for the west in particular. The only reason Russia does not fight Israel is because they are there specifically to fight terrorists. Unfortunately, the US and EU protect Israel from such a designation, which they so richly deserve.

          • John Mason

            There is a job for you, zman, at the UN. You put it together rather neatly.

        • EL ZORRO

          The Ashkenazi mafia jews are using Hezbollah as a disguise to protect their INTERNATIONAL MERCENARY TERRORISTS, I.S.I.S by attacking the Syrian army.

    • NeoLeo

      From he beginning of their intervention in Syria, Russians are trying to maintain ‘friendly’ relationship with Israel, Turkey, even Saudi Arabia…. to somehow make a peace deal with them, terrorists are just their puppets; but the problem is: none of them is interested in any peaceful solution in Syria, they want more blood, more destruction, more deaths, and they want Russia completely expelled from Syria. So you can’t really defend Syria and be friendly with those who attack Syria at the same time. And that’s exactly what is Russia trying to achieve. Even ‘realpolitik’ has its limits.

    • Wahid Algiers

      There is a big difference between smuggling and supporting. Terrorists get smuggled weapons of Turkey/Saudi non-arab and the USrahell cunts. Iran is supporting his sister Hezbollah in a well known and open manner.

  • Derapage

    Russian Army is overvalued. Do you remember the Su-24 shootdown? They failed to recover the surviving pilot. Only the intervention of the Iranian general Qasem Soleimani allowed later to extract him healthy and safe from the Turkish jungle. Wikipedia: ” The rescue team which General Soleimani put forth consisted of eight Hezbollah special forces personnel and 18 Syrian commandos“.

  • sagbotgamot

    Question is what are those so-called S-300/S-400 air defense system doing in Syria that is suppose to cover the whole of Syria? First there was those tomahawks?..and now this.

    • Gabriel Hollows

      They are only there to protect Russian assets.

  • XRGRSF

    As long as Israel has no price to pay they will continue to bomb Syria. This has little if anything to do with Hezbollah. The all powerful Israelis can’t keep track of everything that moves in Syria any more than the Russians or the Americans can, and Hezbollah has already shipped all of the ordinance that they need to Lebanon. Israel is running a bluff, and trying to make the world believe how super bad they are. Israel’s time is running out, and they know it.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Israel themselves have claimed in the past few months that shipments have long stopped from Iran to Lebanon. Israel says that Lebanese civilian militia now manufacture all of their own stuff inside of Lebanon in underground factories.
    Also, why would Iran continue to repeat the same thing if every time the same thing gets bombed?
    This make no logical sense.
    What has happened here is this…
    Iran is shipping legal arms for civilian Syrian militias fighting around Damascus, and Israel wants the terrorist to win.
    Israel is to scared to bomb Russian supplies, so the only thing they can do is bomb Iranians food and medical and ammo supplies.
    And to get away with it all you have to say is this line… “even though they were flown to Syrian capital cause Damascus is under attack, no ammo is actually meant to defend the capital of Syria, it is actually meant to be hauled on camel and donkey back into Lebanon to use against Tel Aviv and NY Jews” lol. Israelis are full of such crap they make me laugh right at them.

      spot on, makes one also wonder if a traitor, spy is amongst the Hezbollah or Iranians. This isn’t the first time something like this has occured.

  • John Mason

    Considering that Syria is a UN member state, the UNSC is doing a piss poor job protecting its’ members. If the UN is unwilling, incapable of performing its’ mandated function then it would be in the best interest, globally, to dissolve itself.

    wonder if somebody is preparing the next false flag attack – a chemical strike on Israel. At that point Israel will have its pretext to drop its “neutrality” in the Syrian civil war and the yanks their one to start WW3.

    I wonder if, when the entire world is engulfed in flames and radiations, somebody in the US or Israel will think “but we had to remove Assad and put up a sharia state in Syria”, before finally going to fuck off forever.
