Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Israel has a set policy of preventing Iran's entrenchment in Syria,  which will be enforced whether he is in Israel or on a historic visit to Chad.

Netanyahu  made these comments as he boarded his plane back to Israel.

The strikes on Sunday morning struck familiar targets, sites at Damascus International Airport and a Hezbollah/Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) base in the Al-Kiswah area.

IAF jets are believed to have carried out dozens of attacks in al-Kiswah and Damascus International Airport as part of its effort to prevent Iranian entrenchment in the war-torn country.


The Syrian regime accused Israel of carrying out airstrikes in the south of the country, triggering air defenses that intercepted several of them.

“A military source said that our air defenses had successfully engaged an Israeli aerial attack targeting the southern region and prevented it from achieving any of its objectives,” read a report by the official Syrian news agency SANA.

Syrian regime supporters said that a total of nine Israeli missiles were intercepted by regime air defenses.
