Regime forces and armed Syrian opposition groups had earlier fought for control of the Al-Mezzeh military airport, which is now held by the former. Fighters from Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia -- a close ally of Syria’s Assad regime -- are currently deployed at the strategic airport. In recent months, Israel has targeted a number of Hezbollah positions in the region.
