Syrian air defense systems have been activated against a “number of hostile targets,” local media report, claiming that Israeli jets targeted Damascus airport but the damage was limited as most the missiles were intercepted.
A warehouse in the vicinity of Damascus International Airport was damaged in the apparent Israeli air raid, a military source told SANA, claiming that the jets fired “several missiles” from the direction of northern Israel. Syrian air defense systems were immediately activated to confront the “hostile targets,” and managed to intercept “most” of the missiles, the source claimed.
The damage from the strikes was “limited,” the news agency noted, without providing any details about possible casualties. No further details have yet been provided by the Syrian authorities.
