Syria on Friday claimed that Israel has filed multiple missiles towards Damascus which triggered Syrian air defences that shot down a lot of them.

Another official told SANA traffic at the airport had not been disrupted.

A Syrian military source said the target appears to have been a "ministry of transport warehouse at Damascus global airport".

"The results of the assault were limited to the targeting of a warehouse at Damascus International Airport", the source added.

Israeli drones and warplanes were heard flying Friday afternoon over Lebanon.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel was behind a series of airstrikes targeting "Iranian warehouses" at Syria's Damascus global airport overnight Friday.
