Syria accuses Israel of deadly strike on central Damascus

Damascus attack news

Multiple casualties reported in a “residential neighborhood” of the Syrian capital.

At least one missile hit the Kafar Souseh neighborhood of Damascus overnight, severely damaging a residential building and causing multiple deaths and injuries, state news agency SANA reported early Sunday, blaming the Israeli military.

A volley of missiles fired from the occupied Golan Heights targeted Damascus and its surroundings around midnight, and even though Syrian air defenses were activated, at least one of the “hostile” projectiles directly hit a multi-story residential building, the agency said.

At least five people, including one soldier, were killed and another 15 civilians injured in the attack, a Syrian military source told SANA, adding that the “Israeli aggression” led to the “destruction of a number of civilian homes” and other “material damage.”

The Israel Defense Forces have not acknowledged the strike, in line with their long-standing policy of not discussing operations outside the country. However, citing a pre-emptive right to self-defense against Iran, Israel has carried out “hundreds” of bombing and missile strikes against Syria since 2011. Syria has repeatedly protested the strikes as a violation of its sovereignty, to no avail.

Sunday’s missile strike is the first major attack since a series of devastating earthquakes killed thousands of people in northern Syria less than two weeks ago. The neighboring Türkiye, which suffered unbelievable death and destruction, received more attention and international aid, with rescuers from around the globe flying in to help.

In Syria’s case, only a few select nations come to its aid, with the government in Damascus blaming Western sanctions and years of a US-led economic blockade and occupation for exacerbating the crisis and hampering relief efforts.

  1. Israel in Palestine? Those Jews and Christians clamouring into Jerusalem.

    Attacking a nation when they have a natural disaster laying heavily on its people? Where’s the mercy? Where’s the kindness and love?

    Gods people? Bulls***

  2. Russia was one of those countries that supplied medicine, food and temporary shelter to Syria

    In every way they are the masters of the IS and Israel

    The stars have fallen from the “stars and stripes”. Now it’s just the banner of a pirate

  3. Israel should be ashamed to even be associated with the name. They have trampled it in the dust. Jeremiah was perfect in his statement they will be a taunt and a curse. One Prophecy the State of Israel has certainly fulfilled. Shame on them and their American masters. They are both a blight upon humanity.

    • Zionism is one of most insidious political ideologies we have been exposed to. It was responsible for the ousting of several hundred thousand people from their ancestral homeland. It is responsible for the the capture of Evangelical Christians now bent to its will. But of most import, it has sullied the name of Zion in its thirst for corruption of the west.

      Zionism is a blight upon all humanity.

      • The Roots of Christian Zionism: How Scofield Sowed Seeds of Apostasy
        Christian Zionism is a promoted religion, less than 200 years old. The Scofield Reference Bible, first published in 1909 by Oxford Press was used widely in evangelical Christian seminaries. This is We Hold These Truths’ first documentary to explain and challenge the theology of Christian Zionism. It was produced in 2008 and continues to be a valid source for understanding Christian Zionism. Chuck Carlson, founder of We Hold These Truths narrates this video.
