In the follow up to the Israeli attack on Syria’s Mezzeh military airport and to Syria’s reaction to the missile strikes, Russian political analysts reviewed how a ripening conflict between the two neighboring states might alter the balance of power in Syria, which is now under the ceasefire brokered by Russia, Turkey and Iran.
In the early hours of Friday morning, the Syrian Army reported that Israel had carried out missile strikes targeting the Mezzeh (also spelled as Mezzah) military airport southwest of the Syrian capital of Damascus.
Syrian military command has since warned Tel Aviv that it may take retaliatory measures.
Syrian Army Command stressed to SANA that it would continue its war on terrorism by “eliminating and cutting off the arms supporting it.” Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Forces have refused to comment on the attack. Russian political analysts have commented on the ripening conflict between the two neighboring states, suggesting how it might alter the balance of power in Syria which is now under the ceasefire brokered by Russia, Turkey and Iran.
He added that Israel is currently not inclined to show any initiative in Syria and is waiting instead upon the initiatives of the states which are actively participating in the Syrian process.
“It looks like the situation will wind down soon, however time is needed to set up a new balance of power in the region,” he added.
