TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Syria’s military said it has thwarted an Israeli missile attack on the Damascus International Airport.

A number of “enemy missiles” fired at the Damascus International Airport were dismantled, a military source told SANA news agency late on Saturday.

“Our air defense systems thwarted an Israeli missile aggression,” the source added.

It came after reports said several explosions had been heard near the airport.

Israel has become increasingly involved in the war in Syria with attacks on the country’s military and civilian infrastructures over the past few months.

The Tel Aviv regime has launched the attacks as Syria has managed to recapture many areas across the country from the grip of Takfiri terrorists.

However, many of those attacks have failed as Syrian defense system has managed to shoot down missiles fired by Israel.
