Flights resume at Damascus airport nearly 2 weeks after strike attributed to Israel
The international airport in Syria’s capital of Damascus resumed flights on Thursday nearly two weeks after an airstrike attributed to Israel that caused serious damage to the facility, a private company said.
The June 10 airstrike caused significant damage to infrastructure and runways and rendered the main runway unusable.
Israel’s military has declined to comment on the airstrike. The facility is located just south of Damascus, where Syrian opposition activists say Iran-backed militiamen are active and have arms depots.
