Syria’s official news agency SANA, citing an unnamed military source, said the army’s air defences had intercepted the “aggressive Israeli occupation missiles" and shot down a number of them. The agency reported no casualties or damage.
Local residents said they heard explosions in the vicinity of Damascus International Airport.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, said that missiles, believed to be fired by Israeli occupation, hit areas near the airport.
The attack targeted arms warehouses, resulting in heavy material damage, the Britain-based watchdog added. It reported no casualties.
