14th Israeli attack | Missiles target regime and “Hezbollah” military positions south of Rif Dimashq

Loud explosions were heard in the southern section of Rif Dimashq, due to Israeli airstrikes on military positions in Al-kaswa area, which holds the Lebanese “Hezbollah” militias and regime Air-Defence forces, where ten Israeli missiles hit the positions amid interception by Air-Defence with at least seven missiles of their own. Moreover, a missile hit Akraba town causing material damages. However, no casualties have been reported yet.

It is worth noting that this is the 14th Israeli attack on Syrian territory in 2022.

On May 23, SOHR activists documented the killing of a regime soldier from Daraa province, south of Syria in the recent Israeli bombardment that hit the surrounding area of Damascus International airport last Friday, May 20.

Accordingly, the death toll of the Israeli attack on military positions of the regime’s air defence and militias in the vicinity of the capital and its international airport rose to five; they are as follows:

• Three air defence officers

• A regime soldier

• Head of Customer Service and Air Cargo, Ground handling Director

On May 21, SOHR sources reported that “Head of Customer Service and Air Cargo”, Ground handling Director, was killed by the Israeli bombardment that hit Damascus International Airport area on Friday evening. The civil servant is from Zakyiah town in Rif Dimashq.

On May 20, SOHR activists documented the death of three officers and injury of four others of the regime’s “Air-Defence” in the Israeli bombardment that hit military positions and warehouses of Iranian militias in the vicinity of the capital Damascus.

Violent explosions were heard on the Syrian coast and Misyaf area in Hama countryside and the middle region of Syria, due to regime air-defence forces blocking Israeli missiles over the Mediterranean sea.

Meanwhile, military positions of Iranian militias in the vicinity of Al-Manae’ mountain near Al-Kaswa city in the south western Rif Dimashq were shelled, in addition to Jamraya area northern of the capital Damascus and the Damascus International Airport.
