AFP's correspondent in Syria's capital of Damascus heard a loud blast late on Saturday, followed by several smaller explosions, the news agency reported.

"Our air defences responded to an Israeli missile attack on Damascus global airport and shot down a number of hostile missiles", a military source said, quoted by SANA.

"Our air defenses responded to an Israeli missile attack on Damascus International Airport and shot down a number of hostile missiles", said a Syrian Arab Army source quoted by SANA. Syrian government anti-aircraft defense systems were activated, with a number of anti-aircraft missiles launched in response to the attack, according to SANA. Efforts were made to disguise the true objective of the buildings, the report said, with some of the warehouses labeled "United Nations" or "DHL", the worldwide mail company, in an apparent effort to evade Israeli intelligence-gathering efforts.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the attack targeted an arms depot near the airport where new weapons recently arrived for the Iranians or their Lebanese proxy, the Hezbollah terror group. The agency gave no immediate report of casualties or damage.

Earlier this month, an Israeli military official said the Jewish state had struck over 200 Iranian targets in Syria over the past 18 months.

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.
