Numerous reports in the western press indicate that Israeli aircraft carried out bombing runs in Syria on the morning of Jan. 30.

According to a report from the Syrian News Agency (SANA), Syria’s military said “Israeli warplanes snuck from the north of Al-Sheikh Mountain, flying at a low altitude and below radars, heading to Jamraya in Damascus Countryside where a branch of a scientific research center is located and bombarded the location before sneaking away.”

The statement also said, “The aggression resulted in considerable material damages and destruction to the building, in addition to a vehicular development center and a garage, martyring two workers and injuring five others.”

The statement refuted many western news agency reports that claim the purpose of Israel’s attack was to strike a convoy carrying weapons to the Lebanon’s progressive political forces.

The statement concluded by saying Israel’s attacks will not “dissuade Syrians from continuing to support resistance movements and just Arab causes, primarily the Palestinian cause.”
