The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Syria Blames Israel for Airstrikes Near Damascus

Syria said an early Thursday missile attack near Damascus that wounded at least four soldiers was launched by Israel. The Syrian state news agency reported that Syrian air defenses shot down several of the missiles before they hit their targets. The missiles were fired from the direction of the Golan Heights, according to state television.

The targets were military positions of Iranian-backed militias, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The airstrikes destroyed a weapons and ammunition warehouse believed to be used by militias affiliated with Hizbullah in Lebanon, according to the group, which said that there were at least three militiamen killed.

Israel neither confirmed nor denied that it was responsible for the airstrikes. It reportedly has launched hundreds of airstrikes in Syria in recent years but has only claimed a handful of them.
