Two Israeli rockets launched across the Syrian border struck near the Damascus airport at night, Al-Masdarnews reported. The Syrian military was said to have shot down an Israeli drone in response.
The attack caused a loud explosion but did not inflict much damage or result in any casualties, the media outlet said. The Syrian Air defense downed an Israeli UAV along the Damascus-Quneitra provincial border.
The Israeli military has not confirmed the attack.
The incident takes place amid a string of Israeli air attacks on what Tel-Aviv considers to be Hezbollah militants’ convoys in Syria.
