Syria accused Israeli jets of bombing two installations inside the country today (December 7, 2014) -- one near the capital of Damascus and the second in a town near the Lebanese border -- The Guardian website reports.
Syrian state television described the attack as "an aggression." It said the air raids occurred near Damascus's international airport and in the town of Dimas.
The state news agency Sana said: "The Israeli enemy attacked Syria by targeting two safe areas in Damascus province, namely the Dimas area and the area of Damascus international airport." It said no casualties were reported. Israel had no comment on the bombings.
It is believed that the target of the strikes might have been advanced Russian-made S300 surface-to-air missiles.
