‘Israeli jets’ target Damascus airport warehouse, ‘most’ missiles intercepted - Syrian media

Israeli warplanes have fired a number of missiles towards Damascus, triggering Syrian air defence that shot down majority, according to state media reports.

Most of the missiles fired by "Israeli military planes" were intercepted at around 11:00 pm (2100 GMT), the source said.

Meanwhile, the state TV said the Syrian air defenses destroyed eight Israeli missiles over Damascus, and cited airport officials as saying the airport was functioning as usual without changes of flights.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights explained that Kiswa is "home to positions and storage sites for Iranian and Hezbollah forces allied with Syria's government".

"At 11:15, Israeli fighter jets fired several missiles towards the area of Damascus, and instantly, our air defences confronted the missiles and downed majority", the source told SANA.

An Israeli official said the air force had attacked several Iranian targets in three main locations.

The last such missile attack was carried out on December 25, 2018, during which the Israeli warplanes fired missiles on Syrian military depots in the western countryside of Damascus from inside the Lebanese airspace.
