DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) – The international airport in Syria’s capital will resume flights after nearly two weeks following an airstrike by the Zionist regime that caused serious damage to the facility, Syrian TV reported Wednesday.
The outlet quoted the Transportation Ministry as saying that flights will resume at Damascus International Airport on Thursday adding that all companies “should schedule their arriving and departing flights as of this date.”
The June 10 Zionist airstrike caused damage to infrastructure and runways and rendered the main runway unserviceable.
Work has been ongoing since then to repair the damage and flights have been mostly diverted to the international airport in the northern city of Aleppo, Syria’s largest city.
The facility is located just south of the capital.
