BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Reports confirmed that Syrian air defenses intercepted several Israeli missiles, which targeted the Damascus International Airport, on Saturday night.

The Syrian SANA news agency reported that a military source confirmed the Israeli attack on Damascus International Airport.

The military source said "Our air defenses responded to an Israeli missile attack on Damascus International Airport and shot down a number of missiles."

A SANA reporter said that loud explosions were heard in the vicinity of the airport.
