Prime Minister Netanyahu said that he did not know anything about the alleged Israeli attack that target the Damascus area on Thursday, adding that maybe it was “the Belgian air force.”
“I don’t what happened last night,” Netanyahu said in an interview with Radio Haifa on Friday, as quoted by channel 12. “Maybe it was the Belgian air force.”
Seven people, four Iranians and three Syrians, were killed in an airstrike reportedly launched by IAF in the Damascus area on Thursday night, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, as quoted by Ynet. The attack was allegedly targeting Iranian ammunition depots in the city.

Syrian state television stated that Syrian air defenses downed several missiles coming across Israel’s Golan Heights before they hit their targets in the capital, Damascus.
Israel has continued to strike targets in Syria, as well as Iraq, as part of a campaign to weaken Iran and to remove its forces from the region. Netanyahu told Army Radio on Wednesday that Israel would not allow Iran to gain a foothold along the northern border, pointing out that Israel has conducted “countless” attacks to prevent this.
