Syria accuses Israel of bombing outpost near Damascus

The explosion "shook the Damascus International Airport area at dawn today".

Later Thursday, Israel's military said its missile defense system hit something flying from Syria over Israel's northeastern Golan Heights.

Hezbollah is a Lebanese militant group and political party, funded and supplied by Iran.

The Israeli military said it deployed its Patriot missile defence system to tackle the projectile incoming from Syria above the Golan Heights.

US government needs a 'shutdown' to 'fix mess': Donald Trump
A Democrat lawmaker has blasted President Donald Trump for his suggestion that the government should shut down in the fall. He also claimed credit for $6 billion in war funding approved by former President Barack Obama as a Trump win.

A senior Syrian official threatened a military response to an alleged Israeli strike on a Hezbollah-operated weapons hub near the Damascus airport on Thursday.

A photo taken from the rebel-held town of Douma shows flames rising in the distance which are believed to be coming from Damascus International Airport following an explosion.

Israel has not officially assumed responsibility for the attack, but local media reported that the strike targeted a weapon arsenal of Hezbollah, a Lebanese Shiite group that fights alongside President Bashar al-Assad army. They said the drone came from Syrian airspace, but there is as yet no indication whose drone it actually was, or what it was doing. Israeli forces have on multiple occasions used airstrikes or other attacks to stop such moves, with the military often declining to confirm it was responsible for the strikes.

"The incident in Syria corresponds completely with Israel's policy to act to prevent Iran's smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah", Katz said, without explicitly confirming Israel's involvement.

Theresa May will be the next Prime Minister, Tony Blair predicts
Prime Minister May has said the United Kingdom could not remain part of the single market as it would mean not leaving the EU. The former prime minister admitted Labour is on course for a thumping election defeat in the General Election on June 8.

The Sana news agency said a fuel tank and warehouse were destroyed as Hezbollah's media channel Al-Manar pointed the finger at Israeli warplanes.

Last month, Israel had confirmed that it conducted several strikes in Syria.

Netanyahu released a video statement after the strike saying: "When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah and we have intelligence and it is operationally feasible, we act to prevent it".
