Syrian military has announced that its missile defense system successfully intercepted and downed Israeli missiles fired at an airport in the capital Damascus.
The official SANA agency said late Saturday that the military had thwarted an "Israeli aggression," adding that a number of “enemy missiles” fired at the Damascus International Airport had been dismantled.
“Our air defense systems thwarted an Israeli missile aggression,” a military source told the agency, after reports said several explosions had been heard near the airport.
An Israeli military spokeswoman would not comment on the report by SANA.
“We don’t comment on foreign reports,” said the Israeli official, without elaborating.
