Israel says all Hezbollah cross-border tunnels found

Syria on Friday claimed that Israel has filed multiple missiles towards Damascus which triggered Syrian air defences that shot down a lot of them.

"Only a ministry of transport warehouse at Damascus worldwide airport was hit", SANA cited the military source as saying.

Israel's prime minister says the country struck an Iranian weapons storage facility over the weekend at the Damascus International Airport. The attack took place at 11:15 p.m. (2115 GMT), it said.

Comatose woman who had baby is hospitalized, police say
Police launched a rape investigation after being called to the facility on December 29 regarding an infant who had been "coded". Police say the baby was in fact in distress, and both mother and child were taken to the hospital where they are recovering.


SANA further quoted an unnamed Ministry of Transport official as saying that the Damascus International Airport traffic was normal and that it was not affected by the Israeli aggression. The raids triggered Syrian air defence to shoot down a lot of them. Israel launched "Operation Northern Shield" early last month to detect and destroy what it called a vast network of Hezbollah tunnels aimed for militants to sneak across the border and carry out attacks.

The Israeli jets reportedly crossed over to Syria through Lebanese airspace after having heavily roamed over Lebanon on Thursday. In 2017 the BBC, quoting a Western intelligence source, reported the Iranian military had reportedly established a compound at a site used by the Syrian army outside Al Kiswah, 14 km south of Damascus.

The statements marked a rare, public acknowledgement of Israeli attacks against Hezbollah and its patron Iran in neighboring Syria, where Israel is long believed to have targeted Iranian weapons shipments to the Lebanese Shiite group.

While they have at times traded blows within Syria - where Hezbollah has been helping Damascus beat back rebels - the Israel-Lebanon border has mostly been quiet.

Israel said on Sunday it had completed a search for Hezbollah tunnels from Lebanon after uncovering at least six of the passages dug secretly under the border by the Iranian-backed guerrillas.

In September a Russian military plane was accidentally shot down by Syrian anti-aircraft fire that was attempting to block Israeli missiles.
