Unidentified planes carry out predawn strike on Syrian military airport: reports

Mezzeh military airport, west of Damascus, was hit by several waves of airstrikes around 4:15am, according to reports from Syria and Arabic-language social media on Wednesday morning. The reports said neither the aircraft nor the number of planes in each wave could be identified because of the darkness. The reports included pictures of flames and pillars of smoke rising from the airport, while videos of the aftermath showed secondary explosions indicating that depots containing ammunition, bombs or missiles had been attacked. There was no comment from Israel regarding the destruction of the weapons depots, just as it did not comment on Tuesday's attacks on Hizballah positions in Zabadani, north of the Syrian capital.
