One of the images shows the Al Mezzeh airport, located south-west of Damascus, before and after the strike. According to the report, the target was a possible Quds Force headquarters, which was destroyed.
Another photo depicts the two top floors of the National Defense Building in Damascus, known as the Glass House. The building was where the Quds Force’s Intelligence unit reportedly operated. Following the strike, the two floors were wrecked and “the site looks abandoned,” the report stated.
