The recent Israeli attack on the southern suburbs of the Syrian capital, Damascus, targeted logistics support facilities of the Syrian Arab Army, Vadim Kulit, deputy chief of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria, said on November 3, according to the TASS news agency.
“At about 02:00 AM on November 3, two F-16 tactical fighter jets of the Israeli Air Force delivered a missile strike from the area of the Golan Heights, outside Syria’s airspace, at logistics support facilities of the Syrian government forces near the settlement of al-Qiswa in the Damascus governorate,” Kulit said.
According to Russian officer, the Israeli attack resulted in some material damage. However, no losses among Syrian service members were reported.
During the attack on al-Qiswa, Syrian air defenses didn’t fire at the incoming Israel missiles, most likely as a result of some error.
This was the second Israeli attack on Syria in less than a week. The first attack, which took place on October 30, targeted the northwestern suburbs of Damascus. The target was supposedly an Iranian weapons shipment that was heading to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Israel used advanced missiles in the attack. At least two Syrian service members were wounded.
The recent attacks on Damascus suburbs were likely a part of Israel’s “War-Between-Wars” military campaign. The campaign is meant to push Iran and its allies out of Syria as well as to prevent them from developing their offensive capabilities. None of these goals have been achieved, yet.
