Meanwhile, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the Israeli attack hit military sites in the vicinity of the Damascus International Airport and in the southwestern countryside of the capital.

So far in 2022, Israel has carried out 26 missile strikes against military sites in Syria.

The last attack was carried out on September 17.

The SOHR says Israel usually strikes military facilities where pro-Iran militias are present or targets weapon shipments of the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters.
