The state media also claimed that the country’s defense system managed to intercept “most” of missiles of Israel. It also added that the attack caused “material damage” which led to the international airport being inoperable.

There were no reports of any casualties in the strikes.

Since the war began in Gaza between Israel and Hamas, there has been numerous alleged Israel strikes on Syria as Hamas is an ally of Hezbollah. The war was a result of Hamas attack on Israel on October 7.

The alleged airstrike by Israel on October 12 and October 22 on Damascus International Airport and Aleppo airport had put both facilites out of service.
