- Syrian Air Defense Thwarted ‘Israeli Missile Attack’ Near Damascus Airport – State Agency
Syrian Army air defenses have intercepted several “Israeli missiles” over Damascus International Airport, state news agency SANA reported, citing a military source.
“Our air defense systems thwarted an Israeli missile aggression,” the source said. A SANA reporter meanwhile reported sounds of explosions in the vicinity of the airport. An Israeli military spokeswoman declined to comment on the reported incident, when approached by Reuters, saying “we don’t comment on foreign reports.”
The agency released a short video showing what it says is an anti-aircraft missile in flight over Damascus. Another video, released by the Syrian news website Muraselon, supposedly shows an anti-aircraft missile being launched and then exploding mid-air. Due to the low quality of the footage it remains unclear if that projectile scored a hit.
