Israeli airstrikes in Syria for the second time in three days

Israeli warplanes struck areas in and around the Syrian capital, setting off a series of explosions as they targeted a shipment of highly accurate, Iranian-made guided missiles believed to be on their way to Lebanon’s Hezbollah group, officials and activists said.

Syria’s state media on Sunday reported that Israeli missiles struck a military and scientific research center near the Syrian capital and caused casualties.

The attack, the second in three days, signaled a sharp escalation of Israel’s involvement in Syria’s civil war

A top Syrian official told CNN in an exclusive interview that the attack was a “declaration of war” by Israel. Syria’s government said the target was a military research facility outside Damascus.

Syrian authorities vowed to retaliate against Israel but did not specify what action they would take.

An Israeli Army official told CNN that two rocket interception batteries have been deployed to northern Israel.

And the Israeli Airport Authority said Sunday that it had closed northern airspace over the country to civil aviation flights.
