Shuttering Damascus airport, Israel ramps up its efforts to foil Iran arms transfers
Syria’s Damascus International Airport has been completely shuttered, possibly for quite some time, after an unusual series of strikes in recent weeks which have been attributed to Israel.
In response, Israel has in the past allegedly struck the runway at T-4. More recently, in missile strikes in April and May, a section of Damascus International near a military base was damaged in a way that shortened the length of a runway to prevent large planes from landing.
The report said Israel was thwarting some 70 percent of smugglings, and had decided to further ramp up its action, which included crippling the Syrian capital’s airport.
