ISRAELI MISSILES TARGET DAMASCUS AIRPORT
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.
