DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syrian television is broadcasting images of what it says is the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike on Syria earlier this week.

U.S. officials say the Wednesday strike hit a convoy of anti-aircraft weapons in Syria bound for the militant Lebanese Hezbollah group. The Syrian military said the target of Israeli jets was a scientific research center. The facility is in the area of Jamraya, northwest of Damascus.

The first purported images of the targeted site, aired by Al-Ikhbariya TV on Saturday, show destroyed cars, trucks and military vehicles. A building has broken widows and damaged interiors, but no major structural damage. State TV also ran footage of the damage.

The caption says, "Consequences of the Israeli aggression on the Jamraya center."
