TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas denounced the latest airstrikes on positions in Syria by the Zionist regime of Israel.


Speaking in a press conference on Wednesday, Hamas Spokesman Hazem Qassem said the Israeli aggressions on Syria are the contituation of the Tel Aviv regime’s crimes that seem to have no end, al-Masirah TV reported.

Condemning the Arab countries that have moved toward normalizing ties with Israel, he said such moves have encouraged the Zionist regime to continue and intensify its aggressions.

Qassem underlined unity among all Muslims to counter the Zionists’ plots.

Israel early on Wednesday launched fresh airstrikes on several positions in southern Syria and outside the capital, Damascus, the second such attack in a week.

Syrian state news agency SANA reported early on Wednesday two separate "aggressions" from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on the Arab country’s south and outskirts of Damascus.

The airstrikes were near a village in the southern province of Quneitra, and in Jabal al Mane area near the town of Kiswa in Damascus province, according to SANA.

The Syrian state news agency said the attacks caused only material damage.

SANA earlier said Syria's air defenses had responded to incoming missiles, providing no further details.

Last week, Israeli warplanes targeted military sites belonging to resistance groups in the capital Damascus, killing several military personnel.

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.

The Tel Aviv regime has been a main supporter of terrorist groups that have opposed the government of President Bashar al-Assad since militancy erupted in Syria nine years ago.

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