TEL AVIV, December 7 (Sputnik) — Israeli authorities have declined to comment on the involvement of its military in airstrikes on the outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus earlier on Sunday.
"We traditionally do not comment on reports of this kind," a representative of the Israeli Defense Forces told RIA Novosti.
The office of the Israeli Prime Minister has also refused to comment on the issue.
Earlier in the day, a Syrian military source told Sputnik that Israeli jets carried out a series of airstrikes, targeting an arms depot near the Damascus International Airport.
