Israel jets strike near Damascus: Syria agency

The agency said Israel had committed an “aggression” against Syria by “targeting two security areas in the outskirts of Damascus.”

The agency said the two sites were in Dimas and near Damascus’ International Airport, adding that there were no casualties.

Reports of the attack were earlier carried by Hezbollah’s Al-Manar television.
