An Israeli missile attack targeted Damascus airport late on Saturday, September 15, according to local media reports.

‘Our air defences responded to an Israeli missile attack on Damascus International Airport and shot down a number of hostile missiles,’ said a military source, quoted by Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The agency, without giving any information about casualties or damage, posted footage and images of air defences being activated. In the shaky video, a small, bright explosion is seen in the night sky, with city lights in the distance.

Agence France-Presse’s correspondent in Damascus heard a loud blast late on Saturday, followed by several smaller explosions.

The Israeli military declined to comment on the incident.
