DA­M­AS­CUS: An Is­raeli mis­sile attack tar­geted the Syr­ian cap­i­tal’s air­port late on Satur­day (Sun­day in Manila), ac­ti­vat­ing air de­fenses which shot down a num­ber of the pro­jec­tiles, state news agency SANA re­ported. “Our air de­fenses re­sponded to an Is­raeli mis­sile attack on Da­m­as­cus in­ter­na­tional air­port and shot down a num­ber of hos­tile mis­siles,” a mil­i­tary source said, quoted by SANA. The agency, with­out giv­ing any in­for­ma­tion on ca­su­al­ties or dam­age, posted footage and images of the air de­fenses be­ing ac­ti­vated. In a shaky video, a small, bright ex­plo­sion is seen in the night sky, with city lights in the dis­tance. The Syr­ian Ob­ser­va­tory for Hu­man Rights, a Bri­tain-based war mon­i­tor, said Satur­day’s strikes hit a weapons de­pot out­side the in­ter­na­tional air­port.
