BEIRUT (Reuters) – The Syrian state news agency said Israeli warplanes fired a number of missiles towards the Damascus area on Friday, triggering Syrian air defences that shot down most of them.
“The results of the aggression so far were limited to a strike on one of the warehouses at Damascus airport,” the SANA news agency cited a military source as saying. The attack took place at 11:15 p.m. (2115 GMT), it said.
