Israel Bombs Syrian Airports, Says Air Raid Alert Near Lebanon Border Was False Alarm

HeadlineOct 12, 2023

Israel’s army has blamed “human error” for a false alarm Wednesday that triggered air raid sirens in northern Israel and sent residents scrambling for bomb shelters. Israel’s army initially reported a suspected “infiltration from Lebanon into Israeli airspace.” The alert came as armed groups continued to trade fire with Israel’s army across Lebanon’s border. Meanwhile, in breaking news, Syrian state television reports an Israeli attack has disabled the main airports in the capital Damascus and the city of Aleppo in northern Syria.
