IAF bombs Syrian military base near Damascus: Arab sources

Israeli Air Force planes on Tuesday night bombed a Syrian military base where ammunition intended for Hizballah was being stored, Arab sources said. According to the reports, a huge explosion shook the area of Qutayfah north of Damascus where the Syrian 19th Brigade is based, and a large mushroom cloud covered the sky as a result of a series of secondary explosions. DEBKAfile sources report that the bombing of Syrian targets located several dozen kilometers from the heart of the capital Damascus could not be carried out without coordination and approval from the Russian intelligence and air force. The latest development came during Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu's two-day trip to Moscow that DEBKAfile covered in an exclusive analysis on Monday.
