BBC: Damascus Military Research Center Hit by Israeli Rockets


Per the BBC:

Syrian state TV says Israeli rockets have hit a military research centre on the outskirts of the capital Damascus.

Huge explosions have been heard in the Mount Qassioun area of the city. The research centre there was the target of a Israeli strike in January.

On Saturday, Israeli officials speaking on condition of anonymity said Israeli aircraft had attacked a shipment of missiles in Syria.

The missiles were believed to be destined for Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

Heavy explosions shook Damascus overnight. Amateur video footage posted online showed a huge ball of fire rising into the night sky above the city.

It claimed to show the explosion near the Jamraya military research facility.
