Syria claims Israeli missiles struck near Damascus airport

2 Israeli missiles’ strike near Damascus airport – Syrian state media

"The Israelis have been assassinating, killing, occupying for decades now, for around seven decades, in this region, but usually they do all this without threatening", Bashar Assad told RT in an exclusive interview last month after some Israeli politicians threatened to "liquidate" him and topple his government if Iran continues to operate in Syria.

Smoke rises above opposition held areas of Daraa during airstrikes by Syrian regime forces. The government's aim is to reach the border with Jordan, now in rebel hands.

The United States has repeatedly warned Assad against violating the de-escalation zone, saying it would have serious repercussions and pledging "firm and appropriate measures".

"Hezbollah is a key factor in this war, and the war is long and our need for these military forces will last for a long time", Assad said.

Assad, whose control was reduced to a fraction of Syria in 2015, now commands the single biggest chunk of the country, though almost all the northern border with Turkey and much of the east remains outside his control. "This is once again an example of Russian Federation violating arrangements it has entered into with no regard for civilian lives".

Displaced people have set up tents in areas closer to the rebel-held Jordanian border, which the government hopes to reach, but it is unknown how close the ad-hoc camps are to the frontier.

Jordan this week officially closed its border to additional Syrian refugees.

Belgium Team, Predicted Playing XI vs England
England manager Gareth Southgate did not confirm or deny any team news at his press conference but was full of praise for Kane. So it would be beneficial for both teams to avoid winning the group to end up in the easier side of the draw.

A military source cited by Syrian state television said the army had seized both Basr al-Harir and Mlehat al-Atash - a move confirmed by the Observatory.

Clearly, a great many people no longer believe such lies, as previously evidenced by the flood of wounded Syrians seeking medical treatment in Israel.

The Assad regime said on Tuesday that two Israeli missiles fell in the Damascus airport area, targeting weapons stores which belong to the Lebanese Hezbollah militias.

A U.S. official said it was Israeli forces that carried out a deadly strike against an Iraqi paramilitary base in eastern Syria on June 17.

It said the strike comes amid "major losses" for the rebels in the south and elsewhere in Syria, repeating the government claim that Israel supports "terrorists" operating on its territories.

More than five million people have fled overseas since the Syrian conflict erupted in 2011.
