Netanyahu confirms weekend strike on 'Iranian weapons' in Syria

Syria intercepts Israeli missiles fired toward Damascus

Israel's prime minister says the country struck an Iranian weapons storage facility over the weekend at the Damascus International Airport.

"In just the last 36 hours, the air force struck Iran's warehouses, containing Iranian arms, in Damascus worldwide airport", he added, referring to a Friday night sortie that Syria said it had answered with anti-aircraft fire.

It reached a few dozen metres into Israel, and at 55 metres under the ground was the deepest as well as "the longest and most detailed" of all the tunnels the army exposed, Conricus said. According to Al-Hadath TV channel, the Israeli planes attacked Iranian military warehouses near the airport, which are used by the Hezbollah militias, fighting on the side of the government's army.

Israel said today it had completed a search for Hezbollah tunnels from Lebanon after uncovering at least six of the passages dug secretly under the border by the Iranian-backed guerrillas. "We are thus approaching the completion of the goal we set at the outset of Operation Northern Shield - the eradication of Hezbollah's tunnels weapon", he said. Israel, coordinating with United Nations peacekeepers in Lebanon, said it sought no escalation.

Netanyahu, visiting the northern border later on Sunday, put the number at "between 1,000 and 2,000" Hezbollah fighters.

Details Over Top Sanders Advisor's Alleged Sexual Misconduct With Subordinate Emerge
The allegations have cast a shadow on Sanders' potential 2020 run in a likely crowded field of Democratic contenders. Trump himself has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct, but has denied the allegations.

Israel and the United Nations say the tunnels violate a cease-fire resolution that ended a devastating war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006.

But with that civil war winding down, Israeli security officials fear Hezbollah is refocusing its attention on Israel.

The source further said that the aggression occurred at 11:15 p.m. local time on Friday, adding, "Eight enemy targets spotted in the skies of Damascus exploded".

The outgoing IDF chief of staff has acknowledged that Israel has been bombing Syria on a "near-daily" basis for years, in a massive military campaign allegedly aimed at degrading Tehran's supposed military buildup in the region.
