Satellite images published by an Israeli intelligence and imagery firm show construction work at Damascus airport after damage was caused to its runways in a strike attributed to Israel.
According to estimates by ImageSat International (ISI), the repair work — at a number of locations at the airport and adjacent military airbase — will likely last a number of days.
Syria accused Israel of striking the airport in the pre-dawn hours of Friday. The raid shuttered the airport “until further notice” according to the Syrian transport ministry. The strike came after Israeli officials said Iran was smuggling arms to its Lebanese proxy terror group Hezbollah, using civilian flights via Syria.
