Israeli warplanes, who targeted Syria on Friday, have struck the country near its capital yesterday setting off “a series of explosions” while targeting a group of missiles.
According to ABC News, Israel believes that the missiles are bound for the Hezbollah militant group.
The site reports:
The attack, the second in three days and the third this year, signaled a sharp escalation of Israel’s involvement in Syria’s bloody civil war. Syrian state media reported that Israeli missiles struck a military and scientific research center near Damascus and caused casualties.
Syria’s Foreign Ministry condemned the attacks, saying the “flagrant Israeli aggression aims to give direct military support to terrorist groups” fighting the government. Syria refers to rebels trying to topple President Bashar Assad’s regime as “terrorists.”
Apparently the attacks injured some people and caused “widespread destruction” within the country.
It puts Syria in a tough place, since sources believe that retaliating would “risk dragging the Jewish state and its powerful army into a broader conflict.”
Now, Syria has to weigh their options as to what action they should take when it comes to their military, which will spark a possible response from Tehran.
We pray for the victims of this attack, and hope they can come to peace soon. Watch it all go down in the video above.
