Damascus, January 13 (RHC)-- Syrian media say the Israeli regime has launched fresh airstrikes on eastern parts of the country near the Iraqi border, with reports falling short of providing the number of possible casualties.

Syria's official news agency SANA said the air assault was carried out on the city of Dayr al-Zawr and the town of al-Bukamal, along the border with Iraq, in the early hours of Wednesday.

Citing a military source, SANA said that “exactly 01:10 at dawn today, the Israeli enemy launched an air aggression against Dayr al-Zawr and Bukamal, and the results of the aggression are currently being verified.”

Israel frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those of the resistance movement Hezbollah which has played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against foreign-backed terrorists.

The Arab country has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011.  The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.

Israel mostly keeps quiet about the attacks on Syrian territories which many view as knee-jerk reaction to Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism in country.

Syrian government forces have taken back many areas once controlled by the terrorist groups.

    Israel will never be happy until it expands its borders to encompass the entire Middle East. Zionism uber alles. All the world a slave to Israel.
