Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said on Thursday that the reports of an airstrike targeting Damascus Airport matches Israel’s policy of preventing the transfer of advanced weaponry to Hezbollah.
Katz, while not confirming outright Israel struck Damascus airport stated that the “attack is consistent with our policy to prevent Iran’s smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah by Iran.”
Katz, who is in the United States meeting with senior officials, made the comment after Arab media reported that Israel struck Hezbollah arms hub near Damascus airport with five strikes at around 3:25 A.M. local time. No injuries were been reported but a large fireball was seen by locals.
“The prime minister has said that whenever we receive intelligence that indicated an intention to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, we will act,” Katz said.
