"Just in the last 36 hours the air force attacked Iranian warehouses containing Iranian weapons in the Damascus worldwide airport", Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting, according to his office.

The official news agency SANA reported that Syrian air defense batteries opened fire on "hostile Israel missiles" and intercepted "most" of them.

On Friday, Syrian state news agency SANA reported that the country's air defenses intercepted missiles fired at the Damascus global airport at around 11:00 p.m. local time, with a military source attributing the attack to Israel.

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

Shortly after 11PM, Syrian media began reporting that explosions were being heard throughout Damascus, along with simultaneous reports from Lebanon claiming there was an abundance of Israeli fighter jets operating in the region.
