Seven pro-Iran militants were killed in a missile strike at a compound near Damascus Thursday night.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insists that he doesn’t know anything about Thursday night’s attack on the Syrian capital.
“I don’t know what happened last night,” the prime minister said, speaking to Radio Haifa on Friday. “Maybe it was the Belgian Air Force,” he quipped.
“I don’t comment on one operation or another,” Netanyahu added.
On Thursday night at 11:45 pm local time, multiple missiles which Syrian military sources believe were launched by Israel- were fired at Damascus, with Syrian media saying air defense troops intercepted and downed a number of them before they could reach their targets.
In accordance with long-standing practice, the Israeli military did not confirm or deny their involvement in the attack.
According to Israeli media, the strikes targeted weapons depots near Damascus International Airport, and came just hours after the arrival of unidentified cargo from Iran.
