Israeli Airstrikes over Damascus Confirmed.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A Syrian military source said the Israeli Air Force violated the Syrian airspace on Thursday around midnight and struck the positions of the Syrian pro-government forces near the Damascus International Airport.

"The Israeli jet hauled through the Southern outskirts of Damascus and targeted strongholds of the Syrian government's popular allies," the source said.

"A commander of the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement, Mustafah Badreddin, was reportedly killed in attack," the sources confirmed.

Also in December, a military source from the Syrian Air Defense said that the Israeli Air Force did indeed violate Syrian airspace to strike the 155th Brigade's Headquarters (also known as the "Missile Base") for the second time in 2015.

According to the military source, the Israeli warplane struck the 155th Brigade's Headquarters in the Northern Damascus countryside, inflicting very little damage as it hit an abandoned warehouse outside of the base's main command center.
