Alleged Israeli airstrikes left several killed and wounded and triggered the mobilisation of Syrian air defence systems near Damascus on Sunday, Syrian state media reported.

Footage shows air defence projectiles flying in the skies over Damascus, while locals can be heard whistling and cheering in the background.

According to Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) the missiles were launched from an Israeli aircraft flying in Lebanese airspace. SANA also says a child was among those killed in the strikes.

Israel Defence Forces (IDF) has not issued a statement regarding the reported attacks in Syria.
