Israel regime's airstrike on Syria, video

Sun May 5, 2013 20:12:54

The Zionist regime has attacked a research center in the suburbs of the Syrian capital, Damascus, following heavy losses of al-Qaeda-affiliated groups at the hands of the Syrian army.

The Syrian state television said the Jamraya research center, located northwest of the capital, was the target of the Israeli airstrike. There have also been reports of casualties.

Heavy blasts were also heard in Damascus overnight.

The Jamraya research center was also targeted by an Israeli airstrike in January.

The Sunday attack came shortly after Tel Aviv confirmed on Friday that its warplanes had hit a “game-changing” target in Syria.

“The new Israeli attack is an attempt to raise the morale of the terrorist groups which have been reeling from strikes by our noble army,” the Syrian state television said.

The Israeli attack “aims at loosening the noose around the terrorists in the eastern Ghouta” region, near Damascus, the state television added.

Tel Aviv has made no confirmation on the new Israeli strike. “We don’t respond to this kind of report,” a Zionist military spokeswoman said.
