{…and the martyrs, with their Lord. For them is their reward and their light…} – Holy Quran, al-Hadid 19

Hezbollah said in a statement on Tuesday that one of its members, Ali Kamel Mohsen, embraced martyrdom the night during an ‘Israeli’ attack took place near Damascus Airport in the Syrian capital.

Syria’s state television said late on Monday that the Syrian air defenses had successfully intercepted a new ‘Israeli’ aggression above Damascus and the capital city's International Airport.

The ‘Israeli’ missiles flew over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights where they conducted raids around the capital, according to a Syrian military spokesman, and the Syrian air defenses thwarted most of the missiles before reaching their targets.

Syria's state-run news agency SANA said the ‘Israeli’ attack wounded at least seven Syrian troops. Meanwhile, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the number of fatalities at five.

After the Lebanese resistance movement mourned the martyrdom of Mohsen on Tuesday, ‘Israeli’ media reported that there was "fear and alertness in ‘Israel’ of Hezbollah's response.”

Hezbollah had vowed in the past to retaliate for any of its members that were killed by ‘Israeli’ forces in Syria. The resistance group fired a barrage of anti-tank missiles into the occupied territories in September last year after two of its fighters embraced martyrdom in an ‘Israeli’ aggression near Damascus.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government stresses that the ‘Israeli’ regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.

The Zionist regime frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those of Hezbollah which has played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against terrorists.

The Tel Aviv regime mostly keeps quiet about the attacks on Syrian territories which many view as knee-jerk reaction to Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism in the country.
