A man was screaming on the ground floor near the rental car area of the airport, in the International Terminal, as the cops surrounded him. He pulled out a gun saying, “You’re going to need mental therapy after this.”

It was around 7:24 when the first floor of terminal ‘A’ was cleared by the officers. Police had their weapons drawn at the airport which created a panic among people. And all the roads to the airport were eventually shut down.

Israel strikes a Syrian airport

#Israel #Syria #airport #missile #MiddleEast #incident

Israeli warplanes stuck a weapons supply hub operated by Lebanese group Hezbollah near Damascus airport on Thursday, targeting arms sent from Iran in commercial and military cargo aircraft. The Israel media said that anti-aircraft missiles intercepted a target, what appeared to be an unmanned drone, over the Golan Heights. This was the second Israeli interception of a target coming from Syria.

Israeli missiles hit a military position southwest of an airport east of Damascus, which caused explosions and material losses. Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said that the incident in Syria corresponds completely with Israel’s policy to act to prevent Iran’s smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah.

I would like to say that he deserved it, he has been an amazing footballer and still continues to inspire millions. Heck, even I tried to learn soccer watching his videos (until I figured I am not cut out for the sport, I like tennis more 🙂 )
