The comprehensive attack launched by the armed wing of Hamas, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, against Israel on the morning of October 7, called the “Aqsa Flood”, caused the bells of war to ring in the Middle East…
Another alarming development took place today, as the death toll in the region exceeded 1,000 after Israel retaliated against Gaza by raining missiles.
Syrian state television announced that Israel carried out an air strike on the airports in the capital Damascus and Aleppo.
Damascus Radio reported that Syrian air defense systems were activated against Israeli attacks. Images claimed to be the moment of the attack were shared on social media. On the other hand, it was reported that the Iranian Foreign Minister is expected to make official contact with Syria.
Claims that apart from Gaza, a front could be opened against Israel from Lebanon and Syria have been creating controversy for a while.
A MISSILE WAS FIRED ON OCTOBER 10
The Israeli army announced on October 10 that a series of artillery shells were fired into the country’s territory from its neighbor to the north, Syria. In the statement, it was noted that some of the artillery shells reached Israeli territory and fell in open areas.
According to Reuters, a person in Southern Syria said that these shells were fired by a Palestinian group. According to the source, the group fired three cannons.
The army later said in a statement that soldiers responded to the launch point in Syria with artillery bombardment and mortar fire.
The army, which did not provide detailed information, did not report any damage or injuries.
