Russia delivered a message to Israel stating it means to renovate Damascus international airport and would prefer it if Israel doesn't carry out strikes on that site, as these prevent airline companies from resuming flights to that airport, Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported citing unnamed officials.  


Israel carried out air strikes in Syria to prevent Iranian weapons being delivered into the hands of Hezbollah and to prevent Iranian units to intensify in strength during the Syrian Civil War.
