In London, an opposition group monitoring the situation in Syria reported that explosions occurred in Damascus early in the morning, caused by airstrikes conducted by Israel.

These strikes were aimed at military facilities and warehouses associated with pro-Iranian armed groups. The targeted sites were located between the districts of Medimiyeh and Al-Kalamoun in Damascus.

There were casualties among the pro-Iranian militants as a result of these airstrikes. In the area where the attacks occurred, there are numerous military positions and weapon storage facilities belonging to the Hezbollah group.

Earlier, on the night of November 17th, according to reports from Syrian state media, the Israeli Air Force carried out attacks on various targets in Damascus and its suburbs, including the area where the Sayyidah Zaynab Mosque is located.

It is also reported that some of the missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems.

The London-based monitoring group The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) confirms that the targets of the strikes were headquarters and military facilities associated with "Hezbollah".

Special attention is given to the attacks on sites in the areas of Sayyidah Zaynab and Al-Bahdaliyah, located near Damascus International Airport.
