BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – A source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar News on Thursday that Israel’s claims of bombing an Iranian base in west Damascus are false.

According to the source in Damascus city, the Israeli military struck the 4th Armored Division’s ammo storage in the large town of Qatana.

The source said no Iranian and Hezbollah military personnel were at the 4th Armored Division base, adding that only Syrian soldiers were present at the time of the bombing.

As a result of the Israeli Air Force attack on the town of Qatana, one Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldier was killed and three others were badly wounded.

The Israeli Air Force managed to destroy the 4th Armored Division’s base on Christmas, causing several explosions that could be heard from as Damascus city.

The Syrian, Lebanese, and Russian governments have all condemned the Israeli attack, while accusing them over using civilian airplanes as cover when facing the Syrian military’s air defenses.

Israel has confirmed carrying out the airstrikes in Syria on Christmas; they would also deny using the civilian airplanes for cover during the attack.

AMN is spreading many BS on Syria and Yemen for months, I always found how it is strange that this self proclamed lebanese media called “Al Masdar News” is calling Israeli army as IDF.

Anyway, AMN is becoming an Israeli propaganda tool, trying to manipulate his audience…
