TEL AVIV: Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu con­firmed yes­ter­day that his coun­try was be­hind the week­end airstrikes at tar­gets near Syria’s Da­m­as­cus air­port.

On Satur­day, a ware­house out­side the in­ter­na­tional air­port was hit in a mis­sile at­tack.

“In the last 36 hours alone, the Is­raeli Air Force struck Ira­nian arms caches at the Da­m­as­cus in­ter­na­tional air­port,” said Ne­tanyahu.

He promised to con­tinue at­tack­ing sus­pected Ira­nian tar­gets in Syria to stop the Is­lamic Repub­lic from en­trench­ing in the coun­try, where it sup­ports the gov­ern­ment of Pres­i­dent Bashar As­sad.
