Syrian opposition sources claimed Israeli warplanes attacked the Almas military airport near Damascus early Wednesday morning. According to reports, a Hezbollah arms depot was the target of the attack.

There was no immediate official response from the Syrian government or the Israeli army.

The attack follows one from last week which was also attributed to Israel in which an arms depot in a Syrian army military base near Damascus was attacked with jets and ground-to-ground missiles, the Syrian army said.

Israel last week attacked an arms depot of a military base near Damascus with jets and missiles, the Syrian army said. The Israeli military declined to comment on the matter.
