In the fourth attack against Syria in six days, Israel has bombed the vicinity of Damascus International Airport, killing two civilians.
The Israeli air force have conducted a number of operations in Syria over the past week, including the bombing of Dabaa Airport near the city of al-Qusayr, and the bombing of military sites, including several near the capital city, Damascus.
On 22 March, Israeli forces launched an airstrike against Aleppo International Airport. It was the third Israeli attack against the airport in six months.
A month before, on 19 February, an Israeli airstrike killed at least 15 people in a residential area in Damascus. A number of civilians were amongst those killed.
Israeli occupation authorities only rarely acknowledge the fact of its attacks against military and civilian targets in Syria, though it is widely recognised that the attacks are intended to degrade Iranian presence in the country.
International humanitarian law strictly prohibits the targeting of civilians, and emphasizes the need to ensure their physical and mental wellbeing.
