Rocket fire near air­port is blamed on Is­rael

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - WORLD -

DA­M­AS­CUS, SYRIA >> Syria to­day ac­cused Is­rael of fir­ing rock­ets that hit near a ma­jor mil­i­tary air­port west of Da­m­as­cus, trig­ger­ing a fire, and warned Tel Aviv of reper­cus­sions with­out spec­i­fy­ing whether it would re­tal­i­ate for the at­tack, the third such in­ci­dent re­cently, ac­cord­ing to the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment.

In a state­ment car­ried on the of­fi­cial news agency SANA, the mil­i­tary said sev­eral mis­siles were launched just af­ter mid­night from an area near Lake Tiberias that fell in the vicin­ity of the Mezzeh mil­i­tary air­port on the west­ern edge of the cap­i­tal. It did not say whether there were any ca­su­al­ties. There was no im­me­di­ate com­ment from Is­rael on to­day’s re­ported at­tack.
