This is the second Israeli attack on Syria within less than a week. On October 22, "Israel" carried out air strikes from the northeastern direction of Lake Tabarayya, targeting some sites near Damascus, where most hostile missiles were intercepted.

The Israeli aggressions on Syria were not limited to "military targets". In early September, eight Israeli fighters of the F-16 type launched attacks on Aleppo and Damascus, where the Syrian foreign ministry stated that "Israel is playing with fire" and that the situation of the military and security are dire, as the region is at risk of bombing.
